OKD14 - DfT Additional Roads Funding - Reg 11

The Chancellor’s Autumn Budget 2018 announced £420million towards additional Roads Funding.

The Department for Transport (DfT) provided confirmation, via a letter dated 13 November 2018, of an additional £6.083million capital funding for the County Council. This funding must be spent on highway network infrastructure maintenance before the end of March 2019.

The decision is urgent due to the challenging time constraint in which to spend the grant funding.

The Director of Law and Assurance, with the agreement of the Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure and the Chairman of the County Council, used his delegated powers under Standing Order 5.23.
