Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
To confirm Bracknell Forest Council’s
support for the Transport for the South East (TfSE) final draft
Strategic Investment Plan.
That the Executive Member for Planning and Transport approves the final draft SIP following the recent public consultation undertaken by TfSE.
i. TfSE provides an opportunity to support and deliver growth across the south east through the development of a long-term strategic programme of multi-modal transport interventions to facilitate economic growth, improve quality of life and enhance the environment.
ii. The SIP will be key to influencing the investment decisions made by the Government and their major national delivery agencies such as National Highways and Network Rail. Such influence has not been possible in the past.
Not to confirm the Council’s support for the TfSE SIP. This would not preclude the SIP from being formally adopted by TfSE but would jepordise the partnershoip approach being demonstrated to Government. Taking this position would reverse previous agreed support for TfSE and could result in a loss of future funding opportunities for projects which would benefit the Borough’s transport network.
Reason Key: Affects more than 1 ward;
Wards Affected: (All Wards);
Financial Impact: There are no direct financial implications arising for Bracknell Forest Council from the proposed endorsement of the SIP.
Subject to Urgent Proceedings: No
Making Representations: Executive Director: Place, Planning and Regeneration
