Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

 

To approve the allocation of highway contributions secured by way of S106 agreement to deliver works through the public realm contract in conjunction with the programed resurfacing scheme approved by the Cabinet Member in April, 2020, as set out in the Public Realm Service Annual Plan 2020/21 report and appendices.

 

These works to be done using S106 monies comprise engineering features and road markings which will change the environment of the village and reduce the speed through the village.(the S106 works)

Decision:

That:

(a)       The cabinet member approves the allocation of £84,926.00 Section 106 monies from a housing development scheme in Weston Under Penyard, to be  used in conjunction with the annual plan resurfacing scheme;

(b)        All operational decisions to implement the agreed engineering features (identified in the drawings in Appendix A be taken by the acting assistant director highways and transport / head of infrastructure delivery; and

(c)  To approve the £15,500 developer contribution to the resurfacing scheme in Weston Under penyard.

 

 

Alternative options considered:

1.         Do nothing, not to implement the scheme. This is not recommended as the S106 agreement sets out what the contribution can and should be used for, and there is likely to be a clawback provision in the agreement that says that if the monies are not spent or allocated within a certain period of time from its payment, then the monies will have to be returned.

2.         Not to implement the measures set out in Appendix 1. This is not recommended as the design for the scheme has been developed with the local community and will benefit the locality.

3.         Delay the S106 works. This is not recommended. The resurfacing scheme cannot be delayed any further due to the condition of the carriageway, there are benefits as set out in the key considerations in delivering the schemes together.
