unstar this property answer text <p>It is for local areas to decide what governance arrangements would be of most benefit and value to their local communities. The costs of such arrangements are critically dependent on local decisions on how the arrangements are operated, including decisions about member allowances and the number and frequency of meetings. Accordingly, as indicated in answer to the Noble Lord's question of 8 July (HL 16984), assessment undertaken by Government has focused on what different models can deliver, and concludes that the mayoral model provides a single point of accountability that allows significant powers and budgets to be devolved to an area.</p> more like this

The Department’s total capital costs of establishing Free Schools in each of the last five financial years are:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Financial year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Total capital costs</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>£275m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>£704m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>£761m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>£931m</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>£965m</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>On average, the construction costs of newly built free schools are 29% lower (per square metre) than schools built under Building Schools for the Future and similar to schools built under the Priority Schools Building Programme. The department has reduced costs by taking advantage of central economies of scale and standardised building specifications.</p><p> </p><p>We are in the process of making a routine update to the data that we hold on pre and post-opening grant allocations for Free Schools, University Technical Colleges and Studio Schools, following the opening of new schools in September. We will be publishing the latest data on the GOV.UK website in the coming weeks.</p>
