Highway and Transport Schemes Critical Local Plan Delivery

Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


To approve the highways and transport scheme



That the priority list of highway and transport schemes likely to be critical to Local Plan delivery as described in the report submitted to the Executive, be approved.



The approval of the five priority schemes would enable officers to set up regular discussions with Surrey County Council (SCC) and Highways England (HE) on transport infrastructure priorities so that progress can be made in terms of the delivery of the schemes as well as modelling the impact of the schemes in any future transport review likely to be undertaken by SCC.  If SCC and HE agree to these priorities it will also assist in terms of lobbying central Government for funding towards these schemes as well as assuring that S106 contributions are made, when appropriate, as planning applications come forward, or that the Council can justify imposing a Grampian condition restricting the amount of development that can come forward in the absence of a particular scheme.


Other options considered and rejected by the Executive:


1)    Not to support the five priorities;

2)    Wait until further transport modelling has been undertaken to demonstrate with a higher degree of evidence and therefore confidence what the key priorities are.
