Executive Board is recommended to agree the proposal to refurbish the existing Potternewton Fulfilling Lives Centre and to give the authority to spend a total of £870,000 for this development.
The Director of Adult Social Services submitted a report providing an update on the outcomes and achievements to date of the Learning Disability Day Service Modernisation Project and presenting information on how the final phase of the programme would be delivered. The report also sought authority to incur expenditure of £870.0k for the refurbishment of Potternewton Fulfilling Lives Centre, to be funded from within the current Capital Programme
Responding to an enquiry, the Board received further information on the process by which a property would be placed into void management, and if appropriate, how a property would then be put forward for disposal. Officers then undertook to provide the Member in question with a further briefing on such matters, if required.
(a) That the achievements to date of the Learning Disability Day Service Modernisation Project be noted, which to date had positively transformed day opportunities for over 560 adults with learning disabilities in the city;
(b) That the plan to complete the Learning Disability Day Service Modernisation Project in the East North East of the city, which is in accordance with the Better Lives Strategy, be noted. It also be noted that the plan will create three new bases at Wetherby, Cross Gates and Richmond Hill in addition to the refurbishment of Potternewton Fulfilling Lives Centre. In turn this will allow both Wetherby and Ramshead Wood day centre sites to be released by Adult Social Care and put into void management.
(c) That as part of this plan, the proposal to refurbish the existing Potternewton Fulfilling Lives Centre be agreed and that authority be given to spend a total of £870.0k for this development, which has been identified and transferred from existing resources within the current Capital Programme.
(d) That it be noted that it is intended for the scheme, as described in section 3.5 of the submitted report, will be started and completed between February and September 2016 and that the lead officer responsible for the implementation of such matters is the Director of Adult Social Services.
