The Cabinet Member for Community Leadership and Engagement introduced a report on proposals relating to the refurbishment and conversion of the Leys Park Pavilion, Ballards Road, Dagenham, for use by the Box Up Crime project.
The Cabinet Member explained that the Cabinet had previously agreed to allocate Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) funding to support the project. Due to the poor condition of the building and an extensive backlog of maintenance, further funding had been identified from the Council’s Corporate Asset Management budget to fully fund the works, which were estimated at £560,000. It was also noted that, following discussions with representatives of Box Up Crime, it had been agreed that the Council would lead on the delivery of the building works, including the commissioning of contractors.
Cabinet resolved to:
(i) Agree the procurement of a building works contractor for the refurbishment and conversation of Leys Park Pavilion, Dagenham in accordance with the strategy set out in the report; and
(ii) Authorise the Strategic Director, Inclusive Growth, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development and the Strategic Director, Law and Governance, to conduct the procurement and award and enter into the contract(s) and all other necessary or ancillary agreements with the successful bidder(s).
