Decision:

Resolved: 

 

(i)      That the commencement of feasibility work, to look at scheme development and cost benefit analysis (work stages 1 and 2), be approved.

 

(ii)      That the procurement of such works through the North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) Services Framework be approved.

 

(iii)     That the funding of feasibility work from transport budgets, be approved. This costs approximately £41,300.

Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report that sought approval to commence a piece of work which would consider the implications of introducing a Permit Scheme (PS), to govern all utility and highway works activities within the authority’s highway network. 

 

Officers passed the Executive Member a copy of a letter received in August from the Roads Minister encouraging York to consider a permit scheme.

 

Officers advised that feasibility work (stages 1 and 2) would take a minimum of 2-3 months to complete and that a further report would be presented to the Executive after completion of this feasibility work which was likely to be around June 2019.

(i)      That the commencement of feasibility work, to look at scheme development and cost benefit analysis (work stages 1 and 2), be approved.

 

(ii)      That the procurement of such works through the North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) Services Framework be approved.
