Short breaks and day opportunities for people with a learning disability and/or who are autistic pdf icon PDF 193 KB

Minutes:

Councillor N Hoy introduced a report, which had been circulated in advance of the meeting in relation to the proposed consultation with regard to the redesign of short breaks and day opportunities for people with a learning Disability and/or who are Autistic.

 

It was clarified at the meeting that as part of the decision making the figure quoted at section 4.18 of the report referenced the estimated ongoing maintenance and refurbishment costs for the whole Parkwood site, including, but not solely, the day centre block, for the next 5 years to maintain it in its current state. Approximately £700,000 of those costs were for the day centre block itself. Whilst these figures had not been counted as part of the potential savings identified in the report at  section 1 of appendix 1, it could be assumed that they are additional savings and it is important that Cabinet members recognised this is not the case.

 

RESOLVED to:

 

1)    Approve the programme of formal public consultation for a period of 12 weeks on the two proposed options concerning the future of the day opportunities for people with a learning disability and/or who are autistic;

 

2)    Approve the programme of formal consultation for a period of 12 weeks on the two proposed options concerning the short break residential units for people with a learning disability and/or who are autistic; and

 

3)    Receive a further report following the conclusion of the consultation process, including an updated Equality Impact Analysis.
