Estates capital programme - improvement works to the electrical installation at the Shire Hall

To approve the early draw down of funds from the 2020/21 capital programme budget to deliver improvement works to the electrical installation at the Shire Hall, Hereford.

 

The Shire Hall is a council asset and is used for delivering council services. In addition it accommodates H.M. Court Services and also provides rooms for public use, both of which bring in a revenue income to the council.

 

Work to the incoming electrical services needs to be undertaken one year ahead of program as there is an increasing risk that this part of the building’s electrical infrastructure could fail. The electrical infrastructure within the Shire Hall is at least 50 years old and contains outmoded electrical switchgear. There is no expected impact on current revenue budgets, although by ensuring the building can function it will ensure revenue income is received and ensure continued service to H.M. Court service and Council..
