    4.1  Devolved Funding Update – Spreadsheet attached

    Key:

    RED - Likely to require further work, cannot be delivered before the 31 March and or potentially fall into specific Highways responsibility areas (BAU), and therefore have been earmarked for further discussion.

     

    AMBER Some aspects of the scheme are deliverable but may not be achieved in the remainder of the financial year OR further evaluation is required before approval can be given/denied

     

    GREEN – These works can be delivered quickly, within budget and will provide maximum benefit to the road using public. These projects do not sit within the existing BAU operations of SCC.

     

    WHITE – These are jetting requests and will be taken collectively.

     

    Recommendations to be made as follows: -

     

    1.     Projects marked Green are delivered as quickly as possible to ensure that the relevant parishes are winter-ready.

    2.     The jetting requests to be taken collectively, as part of the devolved funding revenue budget, and a local contractor is employed to carry out this work. Agreed that prior to the work being commissioned, Highways team are consulted to ensure that any potential challenges are identified.         

    3.     The Highways Sub-group is given delegated responsibility to follow up on amber schemes, to ensure that the devolved funding budget is spent by the end of the financial year.
