Local Implementation for the 2017/2018 budget

Decision Maker: Environment and Neighbourhood Committee

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

Report sets out proposed list of projects to be included in LIP submission to TfL for 2017/18 budget, and provides feedback from Local Area committees

Decisions:

Ian Price, Team Leader Strategy and Commissioning, summarised the report on the proposed Local Implementation Plan funding bid for 2017/18 which would be submitted to Transport for London

 

The Team Leader, Strategy and Commissioning, advised that the recent engagement sessions with residents, and the feedback that had been received from them, had been really useful. There was still the option to look at funding from different sources, given the potential shortfall of approximately 30% in funding from TFL.

 

The Chair explained that until the London Mayor decided on his funding priorities going forward, the question of the future shape of LIP funding or the amount available to boroughs was still in doubt. However, all London boroughs had expressed support for the LIP scheme to the London Mayor, who had had his transport budget cut by the government.

 

A question was raised by the Chair of the council’s Diversity Forum as to whether disability groups had been consulted on individual projects, and the Team Leader Strategy and Commissioning confirmed this would be expected as part of consultation. But he was happy to receive details of any other specific disability groups that may not have been contacted to date.

 

Members referred to specific schemes that they felt were positive additions to the list including Foresters Drive, Beddington Lane and Waltham Road.

 

It was therefore

 

RESOLVED that the Environment and Neighbourhood Committee:

 

2.1     Noted the feedback from the Local Area Committees.

 

2.2     Approved the list of schemes at Appendix A for inclusion in the borough’s    submission to TfL for LIP funding for 2017/18. 

2.3      Agreed to delegate authority to the Strategic Director of Environment, Housing and Regeneration to approve additional schemes, should an increased allocation be received.
