FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST –  FOI-13-0079

 

 

 

Dear Sir / Madam,

 

Your request for information has now been considered and the information
requested is given below.

 

I request the following information which is in the interest of the public
in regards to adult social care provision in Peterborough.

 

1.      Can you please advise me how much money you have saved through the
closure of two care homes in Peterborough during 2012? 

 

The amount which has been saved in 2012-13 following the closure of
Greenwood House in November 2012 is £279,910.  The expected savings in
2012-13 from the closure of Welland House at the end of February 2013 are
£40,880.  The total saving in 2012-13 expected from the closure of both
homes is £320,790.

 

2.      Can you please advise me how much money was saved by not building
new homes to re-house the residents that were living in these two homes? 

 

The savings anticipated in a full year for both establishments are £1.5m
per year, after setting aside £250k investment per annum to contribute to
the running costs of the new Dementia Resource Centre.

 

3.      How much was initially budgeted to build these new homes?

 

A provisional sum of £6m was included in the Council’s future Capital
Programme for the replacement of residential care homes.  The Council’s
capital programme is financed through borrowing.

the documents or issuing copies to the public will require the permission
of the copyright owner, where copyright exists.  Such a request would be
considered separately in accordance with the relevant Re-use of Public

permission is implied in the re-use of this information, until such a
request to re-use it has been made and agreed, subject to any appropriate
conditions.  Any request to re-use the information should be made to me at
