To approve the Highways and Transport Capital Programme for 2023/24.


RESOLVED that the overall Highways and Transport Capital Programme for 2023/24 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:

i.       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).


ii.     Given the demands placed upon 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.
