50/14
Members were provided with a draft final report on the Review of Road and Footpath Investment Opportunities.

The Committee recommended that the following should be included in the final report:

- An appendix to the report displaying tables with information of each type of programme available

- Information on how officers were assessing alternative and innovative methods of maintenance that can work towards ensuring more can be done for less money

- Tables to identify areas of saving

- A brief business case on velocity patching as an appendix or as an additional paragraph

- Information on private footpath schemes included in the business case

Members raised the following points/questions:

- With regards to the marketing/communication campaign aimed at reporting potholes, Members suggested that further consideration should be given to the response which SBC would provide once a pothole had been reported.

- Footpaths did not seem to get the same level of attention as pot holes, it was agreed that this area of long standing issues needed to be addressed

- 575 million had been reserved for large one-off maintenance and renewal projects. It was highlighted that a substantial scheme was required in order to qualify for the funds and therefore SBC would look to work as a joint authority
RTS

Members heard that Corporate Management Team had requested the Committee to investigate bridge maintenance across the Borough.
A Tri-partite meeting was suggested in order to conclude the current review and to discuss the future review of Bridge Maintenance.
