The proposed decision was considered and endorsed at the Environment and Transport Cabinet Committee on 17 July 2020..
Financial implications: The estimated cost of the A20 London Road Ayelsford roundabout scheme is £3.5m; the allocation from the Local Growth Fund is £2.2m and Developer Contribution of £1.3m. Costs of developing the scheme are included within the estimate. Feasibility design work was funded via a previously endorsed SELEP Business Case.
Legal implications: Heads of Terms have been drafted for the sale of the required third-party land and are to be communicated to the landowner in due course. It is not anticipated that this process will be delayed, and negotiations continue with the landowners representative who attends the Project Steering Group Meetings.
Equalities implications: An Equality Impact Assessment has been completed for this project, see background documents. This has concluded that none of the Protected Characteristics are affected by the proposed scheme and therefore KCC will periodically review this document whilst keeping all the relevant groups informed and updated.
