That the Cabinet


1.     Approve, in principle, the proposed bid outlined in this report for funds from Transport for London to implement the Council’s Local Implementation Plan.


2.     Delegate authority to the Cabinet Member for Property, Highways and Transport to agree any changes or additions prior to the submission deadline and to submit the Council's Local Implementation Plan 2023/24 Delivery Programmebid and further bids to support the new three Delivery Plan as required by Transport for London.


3.     Notes that the subsequent progression of any individual scheme or programme in the Plan and funded by Transport for London budgets will also be subject to the Council’s usual democratic capital release procedures, requiring final sign off by the Cabinet Member for Finance and the Cabinet Member for Property, Highways and Transport.


Reasons for decision


Cabinet agreed the Council’s application for Transport for London funding for the ensuing financial year which would provide investment locally in a range of transport schemes. Cabinet also agreed to delegate final approval of the Council’s submission to the Cabinet Member.


The Cabinet Member for Property, Highways and Transport outlined the differences in approach to transport between the Council and the Mayor of London, but welcomed the Council’s application which would provide a number of local improvements, including zebra crossings, a new bridge, upgrades to the canal towpath, cycle improvements and also support for local parking management schemes.


The Cabinet Member for Property, Highways and Transport moved a minor amendment to correct some figures in the report.


The Leader of the Council expressed the Council’s wish to be able to spend the funding itself, as opposed to the current bureaucratic bidding process to Transport for London.


Alternative options considered and rejected


The Cabinet could not agree to submit the Council’s bid and thereby not be in receipt of local transport funding.
