Decision details

Preparing For The Future Programme

Decision Maker: Chief Operating Officer

Decision status: Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


To complete early concept planning design work for redesign of Keynsham Civic Centre. This work is necessary to provide a clear feasibility study and longer-term project plan. This work is estimated to cost £50k.


To fully approve capital amounting to £50k from the provisional programme item Project Inception Fund of £184k.

Alternative options considered:

Without the initial work to plan the redesign during 2020/21 we will fall behind on work to deliver the project, delay changes to improving IT to support agile working and reduce opportunities to properly assess the options and reduce risks. There will be limited colleague engagement opportunity if the conceptual design stage is not carried out.
