As Cabinet Member for Highways & Transport I approve the progression, via KCC’s Local Growth Fund arrangements, for the M2 Junction 5 Improvement Scheme; allowing it to progress to the next stages of development and delivery.
To facilitate this, I agree:
- to confirm that KCC will act as the accountable body for the project;
- to enter into a Local Growth Fund (LGF) funding agreement; and
- to enter into legal agreements with the relevant third parties delivering the schemes to transfer the conditions of the LGF spend and project management to them
I also agree to delegate authority to Corporate Director of GET, in consultation with the Corporate Director of Finance & Procurement, to enter into relevant legal agreements and take other actions necessary to implement this decision.
