Minutes:

The Cabinet Member for the Environment, Councillor Krupa Sheth, introduced the report which sought approval for the Highways Carriageway Scheme Programme 2020-21. The proposal to use the total capital budget allocation of £3.5 million exclusively for carriageways and highways was highlighted, with footways subject of their own £20 million major investment programme.  Whilst noting the additional £239k received from Transport for London (TfL) to fund resurfacing work along Willesden Lane (Sidmouth Road to Coverdale Road), Cabinet expressed concern that future LIP funding was uncertain in light of the budgetary pressures on TfL created by theCovid-19 pandemic, which given the impact on the Council, would be subject to ongoing review and discussion.
