Discussion details:

There were three questions submitted by two Members.  These and the responses were published as a supplement to the agenda. Both Mark Sugden (Hinchley Wood, Claygate and Oxshott) and Jonathan Essex (Redhill East) had submitted further comments and queries around the Countrywide Integrated Transport Schemes Prioritisation Process.  Both Members requested the same information on the schemes that were not successful and that information be made public.  Members and the public needed to know and understand where the unsuccessful bids were in the rankings to get an overall perspective and that Members may wish to choose another scheme, depending on the result, for submission in subsequent years.  This request was also in the interests of transparency for residents.


Sinead Mooney (Staines) spoke as a divisional member and requested that the Cabinet Member seek a review of the process and in particular the front end of the process as it could be more streamlined.  There was a need to understand thresholds, manage expectations of residents and more member involvement and understanding was needed.



1.    That a small cross-party review group be set up to review the process.

2.    That further detailed information on bids would be published with the Communities, Highways and Environment Select Committee agenda was noted.

3.    That each Member would be contacted from 9 December with full feedback of their scheme bids and they would be offered a meeting with their area stakeholder engagement officers.
