Decision details


Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Waste

Decision status: Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To approve the package of work to be undertaken, using the additional funding provided by the Department for Transport (DfT) and from the Council’s own revenue budgets for 2019/20



I approve that the package of additional highway works as described in ‘Wiltshire Highways – Additional Funding’ (see Appendix 1) be adopted for implementation, subject to final budget approvals for 2019/20.



This decision was published on Wednesday 13 February 2019 and will come into force on Thursday 21 February 2019        



Reasons for the decision:

It is important to ensure that any additional funding for highways is spent in the most effective way, especially in view of the backlog of maintenance required on the highway network and its associated assets


Public expectations about the standard of maintenance and cleanliness of the streets remain high.  Budgets have been a constraint in recent years, and the additional funding provides an opportunity to address many of these longstanding issues

Alternative options considered:

(i)         Implement the proposals


(ii)        Not implement the proposals


(iii)       Implement the proposals with amendments
