Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Highways, Assets and Transport
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
To seek the Cabinet Member’s approval to
accept funding from the Derby City Council Transforming Cities Fund
to pay for upgrades to bus stop infrastructure and to include this
work in the future capital infrastructure programme.
That the Cabinet Member:
a) Agree to accept the £426,400 in capital funding being offered by Derby City Council from the Transforming Cities Fund to upgrade the bus stop infrastructure along the route from Long Eaton to Borrowash.
b) Agree that the Collaboration Agreement with Derby City Council, Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council be signed by an authorised signatory the Council to allow the funding to be released.
c) Agree to include the bus stop improvement scheme between Long Eaton and Borrowash in the 2022-23 capital programme.
The funding being offered by Derby City Council will allow a significant improvement in bus infrastructure on this corridor to be introduced.
Not to accept the funding– To undertake a scheme of this size using the County Council’s own internal passenger transport capital programme would normally take a number of years to complete because of the need to prioritise other demands on the limited funds available for passenger transport projects from elsewhere in the County. Using this external funding, rather than relying on the Council’s own resources, means it will be able to complete this scheme more quickly and allow the Council’s own funding to be allocated to other projects elsewhere in Derbyshire. Refusing to accept this funding is therefore not considered an appropriate option.
