Public Realm Commuted Sums - Spend Allocation

Commuted sums are collected by the council to maintain new assets when adopted within the public realm. This commuted sum is intended to ensure the costs of maintaining the new highway and public open space asset, when adopted, is funded.


This report sets out the process for allocating monies collected to date, over the previous five year period, which have not yet been spent to date to be allocated towards the public realm contract for maintenance purposes for which they were required. The intention is to invest the current commuted sums into the public realm over the next 5 year period which is broadly the period over which they have been collected as set out in the recommendation and report.
