To drawdown the reallocated £345k approved, but un-committed estate capital programme 2020/21 funding for Plough Lane drainage and resurfacing car park work to deliver the Plough Lane building infrastructure changes and to enable flexible hybrid offi

The funding was agreed within the Property Services estate capital programme 2020/21 to complete work on the Plough Lane drainage and resurfacing of the car park. This work was subsequently put on hold enabling the funds to be re-prioritised.

The closure of both Elgar House and Nelson House has resulted in more council staff being based and working from the corporate head office at Plough Lane.

As a result the Plough Lane offices were identified as requiring changes to provide flexible office accommodation to meet the changing work practices and the use of office space post-Covid and to support the delivery of services using a hybrid approach.

The reallocation of the existing capital funds will allow the external and internal changes of Plough Lane to be undertaken. The scope of the work to be completed includes elements of the original proposal including, but not limited to work, on the existing car park. The work will also look to include options for providing space to accommodate meetings with customers and public committee meetings.
