The subject of the decision:
This report sought support for a proposition from Brompton Town Council (BTC) for a one-off case for £28,800 to enable them to replace the footbridge over Brompton Beck at Water End in advance of receiving Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) payments.
Alternative options considered:
The reason for the decision:
Cabinet was satisfied that the funds would enable Brompton Town Council to commission the replacement bridge. This would enable them to reduce the time the community would not be able to cross the beck without a detour to other bridges.
That Cabinet approves £28,800 to Brompton Town Council for the costs incurred for a replacement footbridge in advance of CIL funds becoming available and upon receipt of invoices from the contractor.
