Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To consider Liveable Neighbourhood applications submitted by ward Members and agree priority areas for public engagement and development of Liveable Neighbourhood schemes.


RESOLVED (unanimously) that the Cabinet agreed to:


1.  Approve the priority list of phase 1 liveable neighbourhood areas to be progressed as outlined in section 3.11 to 3.12 of this report.

2.  Note schemes will be considered in consultation with other workstreams.

3.  Approve expenditure of £1m from £2.2m allocation (£1,700k in 2021/22 and £500k in 2022/23) for liveable neighbourhoods within the Transportation Delivery Programme Provisional Approval.  This will provide funding to support project activity outlined in 3.14 up to detailed design in 2021/22 and provide some funding to deliver priority schemes that are aligned with other portfolio priorities and capable of early implementation.

4.  Full approval of balance of funding for programme delivery to be delegated for approval by the Director of Place Management in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Climate and Sustainable Travel and the Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Resources as schemes become ready for implementation.

Reasons for the decision:

At its meeting on 10th December 2020, Cabinet adopted the three Liveable Neighbourhood strategies (Low Traffic Neighbourhoods; Residents’ Parking Schemes; and On-Street Electric Vehicle Charging Strategy). This report provides an update on work undertaken since that Cabinet meeting and recommends priority areas for liveable neighbourhood schemes.

Alternative options considered:

Schemes for individual areas will be developed following engagement and co-design with Ward Members, the community and other stakeholders and no scheme details have been confirmed.
