18/09/2020 - Peterchurch Primary School Rebuild - Developed Design

To approve the proceeding to the next stage of the rebuilding of Peterchurch Primary School, on the existing site, by commissioning a developed design (RIBA Stage 3) for a traditional and/or modular build.

Peterchurch is a small community primary school maintained by Herefordshire Council, in the centre of the Golden Valley. The current building is not fit for purpose, there are significant suitability and condition issues.

£125,000 has been spent on urgent reactive maintenance in last 3 years; there is over £420,000 of known maintenance required over next 3 years. Additional reactive repairs will most certainly be required. Despite this, Peterchurch remains oversubscribed.

The design brief will include that the building must be Passivhaus certified or BREEAM excellent as a minimum. The developed design will include the coordinated architectural, structural and building services design and updated cost information.

28/08/2020 - Review of Waste Management Services

To seek the views of the cabinet member in response to the councils collection and disposal contracts expiring in 2023/24 there is an opportunity to review the service and how it will operate going forward so the modelling work evaluates the current waste collection and disposable methods adopted by Herefordshire Council.  This report identifies and evaluates alternative approaches, based on the recommendations put forward by the General Scrutiny Committees on the agreed recommendations made by the Waste Task and Finish Group  to ‘shortlist’ the options to be put forward for public consultation with a view to bringing back a preferred option to cabinet in Spring 2021.

In 2018 the Government released ‘Our waste, our resources, a strategy for England’ which sets out how England will minimise waste, promote resource efficiency and move towards a circular economy. The Council seeks to align its proposals with the actions that will be taken now and the longer-term policy direction set out by Government.
