Allocation of Pothole and Challenge Fund 2020/2021 grant for highway maintenance and reallocation of capital programme budgets for priority flood works

 

To approve the allocation of funding to enable priority flood damage repairs and as able works to enhance the resilience of the county's infrastructure.

The Bellwin scheme will not fund all repair needs following flooding in February 2020. With no further funding having been specifically made available by Government for recovery from Storm Dennis, the significant gap between what Bellwin provides and the cost of all necessary repairs must be met from within the capital programme. This report sets out the funding options from across the capital programme and including the allocation of capital funding available following the announcement of Pothole and Challenge Fund allocations for 2020/21.
