Planning Statement for 129 Hamilton Road (21/4069/FUL)

Received: 16 August 2021

In the Planning Statement for the change of use application for 129 Hamilton Road Barnet Council writes "It is estimated that this project could deliver savings of up to £160 per week for each child...".

Can the Council please explain (including showing calculations) how they have arrived at this figure?

I expect to see:

1. The benchmark cost that the Council are comparing against.

2. The estimate figures for staffing the house based on the the staffing schedule as set out in the Management Plan which indicates the following core staffing structure: 2x Waking Night Workers, 6x Housing Support Officers, 0.1x Forensic Psychologist, 1x Deputy Service Manager, 1x Service Manager, Commissioned Accommodations Provider Operations Manager & LAP Strategic Development Manager.

3. The Estimate of costs for:
business rates
food and subsistence
cost associated with programmes referred to in the Management Plan

4. Notional cost of capital of holding the asset.

I am happy for you to provide your assumptions in spreadsheet format.
