Reports on proposed decisions for Councillors pdf icon PDF 332 KB

Additional documents:


The Community Resources Manager introduced the report and summarised it for everyone. He drew Members attention to the fact that the decision on whether the Bus Shelter proposal could be funded by WoECA Bus Deal funding had not yet been confirmed and would not be made until January 2020. Members expressed a great deal of disappointment and frustration about this situation. It was agreed that a letter be sent to the Cabinet Member for Transport and Energy, and to the relevant section of BCC Transport on behalf of the Committee expressing this disappointment and frustration, and urging that this Bus Shelters proposal should be delivered with this funding.


Following a debate it was moved by Councillor Weston and seconded by Councillor Hiscott that:


£36,500 be allocated to the Horfield Common Project

£6,121.68 be allocated to the Bristol Tree Project

£40,000 be allocated to the Cranbrook Road Project, over-committing by £17,688.82 the current CIL budget available to the AC


On being put to the Vote it was


Resolved – (i) that £36,500 be allocated to the Horfield Common Project; £6,121.68 be allocated to the Bristol Tree Project; and £40,000 be allocated to the Cranbrook Road Project. The AC agreed to over-commit their CIL budget by £17,688.82 to ensure delivery of this project


(ii) that the Cranbrook Road Project could be delivered  when incoming CIL monies become available; and


(iii) that the Bus Shelters Project be made the first priority next year if the funding to deliver this project is not provided from the West of England Combined Authority Bus Deal.


(iv) that a letter on behalf of the Committee should be sent to Councillor Kye Dudd and BCC Transport expressing the Committee’s strong expectation that the WoECA Bus Deal should look to deliver the Southmead Bus Shelter project.
