To approve the Highways and Transport Capital Programme for 2022/23


RECOMMENDED to the Executive Member for Planning and Transport that:


1.     The overall Highways and Transport Capital Programme for 2022/23

is approved.



Reasons for the decision:

The proposals in this report seek to facilitate transport in line with the Council’s Local

Transport Plan 3 (LTP3) and ensure that the Council maintains the highway in as

good a condition as resources allow, having due regard to the Council’s intervention

policy based on network condition.

Alternative options considered:

1.     Failure to approve the Highways and Transport Capital Programme would prevent the delivery of the Council’s obligations as a Highway Authority and be contrary to the position set out in the Council’s adopted Transport Policy (LPT3).


2.     Given the reduction in highway maintenance funding levels in previous years, it would not be appropriate to allocate resources to anything other than the priorities identified through methodical and objective needs assessments.

Interests and Nature of Interests Declared:


Reason Key: Expenditure >£400,000 & Affects more than 1 ward.;

Wards Affected: (All Wards);

Financial Impact: This decision report will propose the specific highway and transport schemes to which capital funding is to be allocated.

Declarations: None

Subject to Urgent Proceedings: No

Making Representations: To the Director of Place, Planning and Regeneration.

Other reasons / organisations consulted

Stakeholders will vary dependent on individual schemes and their impact. Applicable consultation processes will precede scheme implementation.
