A report from the Executive Director of Regeneration and Environment is attached. (Key decision – reference number 4557)
(8.30 – 8.35 pm)
Councillor Daniel Anderson (Cabinet Member for Environment) introduced the report of the Executive Director – Regeneration and Environment (No.64) outlining Enfield’s proposals for spending the grant funding to be provided by Transport for London (TfL) to help implement the Mayor’s Transport Strategy.
1. Enfield’s Local Implementation Plan (LIP) funding allocation for 2018/19 as set out in the report. The Plan was designed to meet the Mayor of London’s Transport Strategy. Members noted that the Mayor’s vision was to move towards 80% of future journeys being by walking, cycling or use of public transport.
2. Appendix 1 of the report set out the funding allocations and expenditure proposals for 2018/19. This clearly set out the Mayor’s priorities and Members noted the proposals with regard to promoting cycling and walking in the Borough.
Alternative Options Considered: NOTED, the alternative options considered as set out in section 5 of the report in relation to constraints on proposals and consultation.
DECISION: The Cabinet agreed to approve:
1. The expenditure proposals for 2018/19 outlined in Appendix 1 for submission to Transport for London and for these proposals to be implemented, subject to the completion of all necessary statutory procedures.
2. Delegation of authority to the Cabinet Member for Environment to make any changes necessary to the programme should there be any change to the allocation from TfL or for any other operational reason.
Reason: to seek the necessary approvals that would enable Enfield’s Local Implementation Plan (LIP) funding proposals for 2018/19 to be submitted to Transport for London. This submission of the proposals to TfL was essential in order to obtain release of the allocated funds ready for expenditure in the financial year 2018/19.
