Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Decision:

In July 2017 the Secretary of State issued a Direction under the Environment Act 1995 requiring seven Greater Manchester local authorities, including Stockport Council, to produce a feasibility study to identify the option which will deliver compliance with the requirement to meet legal limits for nitrogen dioxide in the shortest possible time.

 

A report that set out the progress that has been made following the Government’s response to Greater Manchester’s Outline Business Case to tackle Nitrogen Dioxide Exceedances at the Roadside, and the implications for the 10 Greater Manchester  local authorities in relation to the schedule of work and statutory consultation on the Clean Air Plan was considered on 4 February 2020 by the Cabinet.

 

1At this time a delegation was given to Corporate Director for Place Management and Regeneration, in consultation with the Cabinet Member Adult Care and Health and Director of Public Health, to determine the preparatory implementation and contract arrangements that need to be undertaken utilising the initial tranche of £36m of funding from Government to deliver the Clean Air Zone (CAZ) and other GM Clean Air Plan (CAP) measures

 

Consequently, and in line with the above delegation, the Corporate Director for Place Management and Regeneration in consultation with the Cabinet Member Adult Care and Health and Director of Public Health, has given approval to the proposal that the GMCA (acting by its officer, TfGM) undertakes the preparatory procurement arrangements that need to be undertaken to deliver the CAZ and other GM CAP measures on behalf of Stockport Council in accordance with TfGM’s existing Constitutional arrangements.

NOTE: This decision does not give approval for TfGM to enter into contracts on behalf of the Local Authority, but to run the procurement exercise with potential suppliers to final evaluation and to provide a report to allow the GM Authorities make a decision to award to the successful supplier(s).

Alternative options considered:
