03/07/2019 - 19/00038 - Increase in the age range and the designated number at Oakley School, Tunbridge Wells ref: 2269    Recommendations Approved



Oakley School is the PSCN school for Tunbridge Wells.  Its designated age range is 2-18 years.  All other PSCN schools in Kent are designated up to age 19 years (ie include Year 14 - young people who turn 19 during the academic year).  Oakley School has established a separate company which is an Independent Specialist College (Oakley College) for young adults aged 19-25 years.  This takes young people who are aged 19 (i.e. Year 15).  The anomaly of Oakley being the sole PSCN school without provision for Year 14 and the fact pupils have a one-year gap before they can enter Oakley College needs to be addressed.

01/07/2019 - 19/00040 - South West Kent Dry Recyclables Processing Contract - SC18061 ref: 2268    Recommendations Approved



Due to changes to the mix of co-mingled dry recyclable materials collected by both Tunbridge Wells Borough Council (TWBC) and Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council (TMBC) from 30th September 2019, Kent County Council (KCC) needs to source an alternative supplier to process this waste for recycling and re-processing.


The dry recyclable waste collected by the Borough Partnership cannot be incorporated into the existing contract as the composition of the material is different.


The Contract will be environmentally beneficial as the materials will be recycled therefore avoiding less desirable environmental impact.
