  • to implement or oversee the follow through to action decisions that have been taken at a Council or Cabinet meeting
  • to make recommendations as to the work programme or priorities for issues relating to highways, traffic management, parking or road safety to Council or Cabinet
  • to support the senior highways manager in responding to, or providing justification for recommendations made by the group, this may include but not be limited to a meeting on site
  • to ensure recommendations are in line with the relevant legislation and are within the powers and duties of the Council
  • once a recommendation has been made, to consider and support efforts to secure funding to implement a proposed scheme


As a group, there is no delegated authority for making decisions, but it is recognised that this working group will form the recommendations that are brought to Council and Cabinet meetings, via an appropriate representative. In most decisions, it is anticipated recommendations will be taken forward on the recommendation of the group where delegated authority already rests with the Strategic Director for Places, in consultation with the Portfolio Holders.
