Highways Schemes 2019-2020

 

The Area Board members were asked to agree the Wiltshire Highways planned maintenance for the RWB&C community area during 2019 – 2023.

 

The highway network formed the Council’s largest asset, and it was important that it was maintained in the most cost-effective way that provided value for money. This included the use of asset management and whole life costing approaches to inform long-term investment decisions.

 

Decision

 

·         That the RWB&C Area Board welcomed the road surfacing work and repairs carried out in 2018/19 and noted the improvement in the overall condition of Wiltshire’s roads in recent years, but acknowledged that further investment was still required.

 

·         Approved the highway maintenance scheme list for 2019/20 prepared for the Area Board.

 

·         Noted the new provisional five year programme, which would be reviewed annually to ensure best value for money and whole life costing for the highways asset.

Wrap Up

Minutes:

A question was raised about reporting rough sleepers.

 

The following information was circulated to all RWB&C councillors, in case this question arises in their areas.

 

https://www.streetlink.org.uk/

If you are concerned about someone you have seen sleeping rough in England or Wales, you can use this website to send an alert to StreetLink. The details you provide are sent to the local authority or outreach service for the area in which you have seen the person, to help them find the individual and connect them to support.

If the situation is an emergency, please don’t hesitate – call 999 for an ambulance or the police.

Information for Rough Sleepers from Wiltshire Council website:

The Rough Sleeper Outreach team is provided by Wiltshire Council and other providers.  They will attempt to engage with you if you are sleeping rough and will connect you to services and assistance where possible. 

The council has a Reconnections Protocol for those who are sleeping rough in Wiltshire and do not have a local connection. In each case, our Assertive Rough Sleeper Outreach Officer, working in conjunction with a Housing Adviser, will make an assessment about whether you are considered to have a local connection. If you do not have a connection to Wiltshire you will be assisted to reconnect to an area where you do. If you do not have specific local connection anywhere, perhaps as a result of your military service, we will approve one for you. Time spent sleeping rough will not count towards establishing a local connection in Wiltshire or any other area.
