OD/17/99 Chesterton Wall

Decision Maker: Officer Decision

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The retaining wall at Chesterton Close has partially collapsed and is at risk of further collapse.


Two decisions have been made:


1)    Given the urgency of the remedial work required to reduce the risk of further collapse and the consequential risks to persons and property, it is considered appropriate to waive contract standing orders on grounds of this urgency.


2)    To appoint Brooks & Wood Ltd, the contractor recommended by the Structural Engineer, at agreed rates to complete all the necessary remedial and upgrading works to this retaining wall. This would ensure that the work is completed in the quickest possible time.
