18/05/2021 - Expansion of disabled parking places at Oakham CofE Primary School and The Parks, Burley Road, Oakham, LE15 6GY ref: 733    Recommendations Approved

To offer £15,000 contribution to the expansion of the disabled car parking area because the school has far more parents who hold disabled parking badges now compared to when this was originally constructed.
There are 57 children with EHCP’s at Oakham Primary school and the Parks (48 children at Oakham Primary School and 9 at The Parks Nursery

As reported by the school:
• The disabled car park currently has spaces for 7 cars and one minibus.
• In the morning the disabled car park is extremely busy and this causes problems with trying to get the many children with mobility issues safely parked and into class.
• Each day, before and after school we have cars blocking the main road as they queue to get in which is dangerous to other road users.
• Members of staff regularly 'police' the car park in the mornings to try and get everyone parked. This is virtually impossible as there aren't even enough spaces to accommodate those parents it is supposed to hold.
• Complaints to school are almost daily both from our parents and from the general public as the traffic backs up on the main road whilst the parents wait to come in.

Effective from: 18/05/2021


The expansion will provide a further 10 disabled parking spaces which is proposed to be completed in 2 stages:
Stage 1 - The main area as you come into the car park, on the left.
174msq = £16603.08 plus vat.
Stage 2 – The end of the car park.
110msq = £10496.20 plus vat.
Planning costs and architects drawing plus line markings are included.

The School Conditions Grant paid to the LA will provide a contribution towards the cost of the expanded disabled carpark as a means of keeping school premises safe by tackling health and safety issues as identified within the purpose of the Grant. It is proposed that RCC will fund up to 50% of total cost up to £30K, therefore a maximum RCC payment of £15,000, to be paid upon successful completion of both Phase 1 and 2.

Cllr David Wilby, Portfolio Holder for Education, has approved this request for use of Grant funding through discussion with Dawn Godfrey.
