To update Members on progress and a series of key workstreams relating to the delivery of Spalding’s Western Road (report of the Deputy Leader of the Council and Portfolio Holder for Growth and Commercialisation is enclosed).
Consideration was given to the joint report of the Deputy Leader of the Council and the Portfolio Holder for Growth and Commercialisation which updated members on progress, and a series of workstreams relating to the delivery of Spalding’s Western Road.
It was clarified that the internal road within the Holland Park development would be provided at the same time as Section 1 of the relief road, thereby bringing forward an alternative route through the development which avoided the town.
RECOMMENDED TO COUNCIL:
a) That members note and endorse the strategic direction, key milestones and delivery strategy for Spalding’s Western Relief Road (SWRR) outlined within the report;
b) That the Place Manager brings further reports to Council, as appropriate, in order to update members on progress; and
c) That the Place Manager, in conjunction with both the Portfolio Holder for Growth and Commercialisation and the Executive Director Commercialisation, continues to work with the County Council and key partners to ensure the delivery strategy for the SWRR meshes with the Council’s key growth and infrastructure ambitions.
(Other options considered:
· Do nothing.
Reasons for decision:
· The information contained within the body of the report highlights matters that meet with both the Council’s and the Government’s growth agendas, and additionally highlights matters that meet with the Council’s Corporate Priorities and the thrust of the emerging South East Lincolnshire Local Plan.)
