To approve the Highways and Transport Capital
Programme for 2021/22 and its implementation
RESOLVED that the overall Highways and Transport Capital Programme for 2021/22 is approved.
The proposals in this report identify the current highway and transport priorities across the network. The schemes 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.
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.
Reason Key: Affects more than 1 ward;
Wards Affected: (All Wards);
Financial Impact: The allocation of government grants toward integrated transport and highway maintenance improvements along with developer contributions and borough council capital funding.
Subject to Urgent Proceedings: No
Making Representations: In writing to the Director: Place, Planning and Regeneration
