The Reasons are to carry out works to repair Chapel Street within constrained timescales.


Options considered and rejected were; not to carry out works.


Assessment of Risk;

Medium – As the integrity of the block paved carriageway on Chapel Street has been compromised, continual cycles of warm, wet and cold weather will cause, the carriageway condition will deteriorate even. This may result in potential claims from road users against the Council and more of a struggle for developers to sell new apartments that have recently and are continuing to be built.


The source of funding is General unsupported borrowing, DfT Grant and Claim Settlement monies.
