Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Director of Economic Development and Planning submitted a report seeking approval to bring forward the proposed roof renewal scheme at the Joiners Arms to 2021/22 and to recommend a new capital scheme in 2021/22 for renovation works to make two flats at Joiners Arms available for use again.


Members were reminded that the Joiners Arms Clitheroe is the Council’s homeless hostel and provides a mix of self-contained and shared facility flats to provide emergency temporary accommodation for those in need.


Since being back in Council management in 2017, repairs, maintenance and refurbishments have been undertaken to keep the building compliant and operationally fit for purpose.  However, the need to replace the roof and carry out other renovation works had been identified as significant capital projects Possible further work had also been identified in relation to the render of the rear of the building.




1.   Approve the move of the Joiners Arms Roof Renewal capital scheme from the 2023/24 capital programme to the 2021/22 capital programme, with a revised budget of £42,200, and refer this to Policy and Finance Committee for final approval.


2.   Approve a new capital scheme for the renovation of flats 1 and 2 at Joiners Arms, with a budget of £13,540 funded from the Flexible Homelessness Support Grant earmarked reserve and refer this to Policy and Finance Committee for final approval.


3.   Agree that work to re-render the rear elevation is undertaken as part of the roof renewal project and included in the tender specification as an addition to the capital scheme in the interests of efficiency, subject to the costs returned from the tender process.
