Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


This programme identifies roads in need of maintenance, both structural and preventative and is based on information from condition surveys, members area forums and staff.


On 13 January 2011, the Cabinet approved the Local Transport Plan Capital Programme 2011/12. The Programme included the funding for the Highway Maintenance Block, totalling £3.095 million.


A report by the Director of Technical Services presented both the proposed breakdown of that highway maintenance funding between the Bridges, Lighting and Roads/Footway elements of the network and the proposed Highway Structural Maintenance Programme 2011/12, for approval.  The maintenance of highways was a statutory duty for the Council, under the Highways Act 1980 (as amended).


RESOLVED:  That approval be given to:


(1)  the proposed allocation of Local Transport Plan Capital Programme 2011/12 Maintenance Block between Street Lighting, Bridges and Roads/Footways;


(2)  the Detailed Highway Structural Maintenance Programme for 2011/12; and


(3)  the Director of Technical Services; in conjunction with the Cabinet Member for Streetscene & Transport Services and Party Spokespersons; be requested to make necessary adjustments to the priorities within the programme should the need arise due to financial, condition or other factors.
