Local priorities top of the agenda for small highway schemes More decisions on spending for small highway schemes will now be made locally thanks to a new arrangement which will give county councillors a new budget to spend to meet local priorities. The Local Member Highways Budget is set to be launched at the meeting of the Environment, Development and Transport Committee next week, Wednesday 21 June. The scheme will see each county councillor have control of an annual £6000 budget which can be used on small highway works in their division. In March this year councillors agreed to allocate the new budget totalling £504,000 a year, which could be spent on small highway works such as advisory 20mph signs outside schools, small pavement extensions and modifications, and carrying out additional maintenance to footpaths or verges. And for at least the next two years it’s been confirmed that the new Local Member Highways Budget will be running alongside the popular Parish Partnership Scheme. Letters will be sent out in June to parish and town councils, inviting bids for small highway improvements under the Parish Partnership Scheme. The County Council will supply £300,000 funding, to be matched by bidders. Successful bids will be announced in spring 2018.
