To obtain the Executive’s views on which of the cost options as set out in the briefing paper to take down and ultimately rebuild the Council’s wall adjacent to the boundary of the Depot should be implemented.
As a consequence of the further erosion of the Wallington river bank due to excessive rainfall and resultant heavily increased river flow it is necessary prior to the undertaking of civil engineering works to install gabions to take down and ultimately rebuild the Council’s adjacent boundary wall. The cost options for this work are set out in the briefing paper for the Executive’s consideration.
The report also advises of the estimated cost of installing the gabions and that this has been included in the ‘one off’ bid to the Treasury by Defra and the Environment Agency for additional funds. If the bid is unsuccessful then as mentioned in the report the cost of this work will also be the responsibility of the Council who has its Depot asset at risk.
That the Executive
a) approves Option 3, detailed at paragraph 14 of the report as the most suitable for taking down and rebuilding the Council’s wall adjacent to the Depot; and
b) notes the risk that the Council will also have to fund the cost to undertake civil engineering works required to install gabions if the ‘one off’ bid to the Treasury by Defra and the Environment Agency for additional funds is unsuccessful.
