New Brighton - Environmental Improvement Scheme
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
The Interim Strategic Director: Regeneration and Environment reported that Cabinet at its meeting on 18 October 2012 (minute 108 refers) agreed the funding of £1.2m to implement the environmental scheme for New Brighton Promenade.
The processes involved in considering items affected by the freeze on Capital expenditure meant that the original implementation timescale for this project had had to be revised by the Interim Director of Technical Services. This revision showed that the works could not be implemented without significantly impacting on the spring/summer period in New Brighton and it was considered that as this impact would affect businesses and visitors to New Brighton, then the main works should be delayed until Autumn 2013.
In light of the above, the report set out a revised timetable for the project, recommended that the health and safety works commence and were completed by February 2013 and sought authority for the Interim Strategic Director: Regeneration and Environment to proceed with the necessary procurement processes to undertake both elements of the works.
Resolved – That Cabinet:
(1) Approves the revised timetable and Capital Programme funding profile for the delivery of the scheme as set out in the report;
(2) Authorises the Interim Strategic Director: Regeneration and Environment to proceed with the necessary procurement process to undertake the works.
