Description: LFAS2 will reduce the risk of flooding across Leeds using a catchment wide approach. The aim of the scheme is to deliver a 1 in 200 year level of protection (plus climate change allowance) through the use of linear flood defences, a large flood storage area and a flagship programme of Natural Flood Management measures. The scheme will help stimulate economic growth and regeneration within the city as well as responding to help address the current Climate Emergency.
DCA (RAG) Amber
DCA text: The Infrastructure Project Authority's Delivery Confidence Assessment rating is Amber.This is primarily due to the following factors: This is the first annual return for LFAS2 The project is rated as amber on the basis the project is progressing well - tasks outlined last quarter such as finalising a land purchase and the submission of Step 2 planning documents have both been achieved. Design and construction works are approximately 30% of the way through the programme and stakeholders continue to be engaged via dedicated recourses in the project team. Therefore over the course of the year risks on the project have decreased and the project end date remains unchanged.
Start date 2016-09-01
End date 2024-10-18
Schedule text The project end-date is 18 October 2024. This is primarily due to the following factors: The project is progressing well with 30% of design and construction complete. The project end date remains unchanged
Baseline £24.83m
Forecast £14.00m
Variance -44.00%
Variance text: The budget variance exceeds 5%. The cashflow shows expenditure slipping into future years, albeit that the forecast outturn position for the project remains unchanged. The reasons for cost slippage is the focus on up-front design activities and discharging planning conditions. In addition, the effects of the coronavirus pandemic have also contributed to the expenditure slippage. It should be noted that the overall programme remains unchanged as we have used float and time risk allowances on these activities.
Whole Life Cost £146.37m
WLCost text: The projects Baseline Whole Life Cost is £146.37m. This is primarily due to the following factors: There is no change to the baseline WLC. Delivery costs are based on well-established spend to dare and tendered costs. Future operation and maintenance costs are based upon standard estimates of assets being constructed and flood risk.
