The request was successful.

Dear Barking & Dagenham Borough Council,

I would like to make a request for the following information regarding the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) and Academy programmes.

1) Which schools and academies in your area are either undergoing redevelopment as a result of the BSF and Academy programmes or will do in the future, listing which are confirmed to be going ahead either currently or in the future and which are awaiting a review before they can be confirmed. If all BSF/Academy developments in your area have been cancelled due to the spending cuts, then this is all I need to be informed of and you can disregard the following requested details.

2) The start and completion dates for the building works on each school and academy, with attention paid to make sure that these are up-to-date as I understand that the estimated start and completion dates may well have changed since the BSF and Academy spending cuts in July/August.

3) The main building contractor and architect which you have awarded each school to. If this decision has not yet been made for certain schools, then the expected date when you plan to make your decision on this.

Yours faithfully,

Mr T Hyatt

Dear Mr T Hyatt

Request for information LBBD:51027

Your request for information has now been considered and the information
is below;

I would like to make a request for the following information
regarding the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) and Academy
programmes.

1. Which schools and academies in your area are either undergoing
redevelopment as a result of the BSF and Academy programmes or will do in
the future, listing which are confirmed to be going ahead either
currently or in the future and which are awaiting a review before they
can be confirmed. If all BSF/Academy developments in your area have been
cancelled due to the spending cuts, then this is all I need to be
informed of and you can disregard the following requested details.

BSF investment is continuing at two schools in the Borough, as
follows:

§ Dagenham Park Church of England School

§ Sydney Russell Community Secondary School

2. The start and completion dates for the building works on each
school and academy, with attention paid to make sure that these are
up-to-date as I understand that the estimated start and completion dates
may well have changed since the BSF and Academy spending cuts in
July/August.

Start and completion is as follows:

§ Dagenham Park - Work commenced mid-December 2010 - ends March 2012

§ Sydney Russell - Work commenced mid-December 2010 - ends September
2012

3. The main building contractor and architect which you have awarded
each school to. If this decision has not yet been made for certain
schools, then the expected date when you plan to make your decision on
this.

The main contractor for both projects is Laing O'Rourke, as they are the
Borough's LEP partner. They are using designers as follows:

§ Dagenham Park - Alfred Hall Monaghan Morris

§ Sydney Russell - Building Design Partnerships

If you need any more information, or if I can be of any further help,
please contact me.

If you are not satisfied with the way that I have dealt with your request
you can make a complaint by writing to the Corporate Complaints & FOI
Team, Room 104, Town Hall, 1 Town Square, Barking IG11 7LU. Alternatively
you can make your complaint on-line at [1]www.barking-dagenham.gov.uk or
you can e-mail your complaint to [2][Barking & Dagenham Borough Council request email].

If you are still not satisfied, after following our Corporate Complaints
procedure, you can take your complaint to the Information Commissioner.
Full details of how to do this will be made available on request.

Yours sincerely
