31ten was brought in to assist the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) in reviewing their current capital programme and governance arrangements. The objective was to identify and build upon existing best practices and develop a Strategic Capital Programme Framework to enhance oversight of the Capital Programme, establish a more strategic approach, enable a long-term view of capital investment decisions, and align the programme to RBKC’s corporate priorities.
31ten worked closely with RBKC to address the identified opportunities for improvements and develop a structured governance framework together with a toolkit to improve oversight, decision-making, and strategic alignment of capital investments.

The framework alongside the toolkit, which includes a suite of documents and tools to support the practical recommendations related to governance, provides RBKC with the necessary resources and guidelines to implement and sustain the recommended changes effectively.
