Following on from the RAAC inspections of our schools where no RAAC was found to be present we are now beginning inspection work on our public facing buildings.
We, along with other public bodies, remain in touch with the Welsh Government on this matter.
Further updates will be issued as we progress this work.
Update 18.09.23 – RAAC
Deputy Leader, Cllr David A Bithell, who has responsibility for Corporate Health and Safety, said:
“Following a visual survey of all our school buildings we are confident that no schools have been identified as having RAAC present.” “Further surveys on our other buildings will now take place.”
