Purpose:

The above works have been designed by the Unity Partnership Highways Team. The works will be delivered by the Council’s Highways Operations Team and will exceed £250,000. The highway works are the subject of a S278 agreement between Oldham Council and the Department for Education (DfE), due to be signed imminently, and will be fully funded by the DfE, half the costs when the agreement is signed and half on completion of the works, so in the interim period the costs will be incurred by the Council.

Decision:

RESOLVED - That:
Enter into the legal agreement with the DfE, receive half of the scheme funding on doing so, deliver the highway scheme over the summer months of 2021 and incur costs up to completion of the scheme, whereby the remaining costs will be claimed back from the DfE. This option fulfils the planning condition outlined above as part of the original planning approval.
