Report of the Director of Place.
The Cabinet were presented a *report from the Director of Place which presented Members with a recommendation to request the release of a tranche of Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF) monies. This was to facilitate the continued progression of technical work relating to the Cullompton Town Centre Relief Road (CTCRR) until the end of March 2023, by which time a decision from Government regarding the Council’s pending Levelling Up Fund bid should have been received and any grant agreement agreed.
Members discussed the following:
The Chief Executive added that the levelling up bid decisions should be announced by the end of January 2023. He also explained that the Junction 25 project had been planned for a number of years and that this development in particular was on a much larger scale.
It was therefore RESOLVED:
(Proposed by Cllr R Chesterton and seconded by Cllr C Slade)
Reason for Decision: As stated in the report.
