    Decision made:

     

    It was AGREED to:

     

    (i)    Approve the amended allocations of the Local Committee’s budgets for next Financial Year 2020-21, which were previously approved in September 2019, as set out in Table 4 [in the Highways Update report] (paragraphs 2.1.5 to 2.1.8 [of the Highways Update report] refer);

    (ii)   Implement Option 1 [Do minimum – implement new double yellow lines and install bollards to resolve congestion and obstructive parking concerns] for the East Street, between Chuters Grove and Windmill Lane scheme as part of the 2020-21 ITS programme (paragraphs 2.2.2 to 2.2.6 refer);

    (iii)  Implement one element of the East Street, between Kiln Lane and High Street cycle route scheme – a new shared route on the northwest side of East Street, between the existing cycle route behind the Ebbisham Centre and The Kings Arms (paragraphs 2.2.2 to 2.2.6 refer);

    (iv)  Approve the revised ITS programme for next Financial Year 2020-21, which was previously approved in December 2019, as set out in Table 6 below (paragraphs 2.2.7 and 2.2.8 refer);

    (v)   Give permission for Epsom & Ewell Borough Council to extend the hackney carriage rank in Epsom High Street near TK Maxx as shown in Annex D, to make it easier to enforce this rank and to ease confusion currently experienced by members of the public (paragraphs 2.8.2 to 2.8.4 refer);

    (vi)  Authorise the Area Highway Manager in consultation with the Chairman, Vice Chairman, and relevant Divisional Member(s) to undertake all necessary procedures to deliver the agreed programmes.

     

    Reasons for Decision:

     

    Recommendations have been made to amend the allocations of the Local Committee’s budgets for 2020-21 following an increase in budget provision announced by the Cabinet Member for Highways in December 2019.

     

    Decisions are now needed to be able to move forwards with the East Street, between Chuters Grove and Windmill Lane layby scheme and the East Street, between Kiln Lane and High Street cycle route scheme.

     

    The Area Highway Manager reviewed the ITS forward programme with the Local Committee at its informal meeting in January 2020, in view of the confirmed Highways budgets for 2020-21, and the emerging cost estimates for the developing ITS schemes.  Changes are recommended to this programme to ensure the delivery of all schemes for which developer funding is available.
