Minutes:

The Deputy Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Resources, Commissioning & Governance (Councillor Tom McGee) submitted a report (copies of which had been circulated) providing an update on progress with the scheme to replace the Greek Street bridge and the options being considered.

 

Further clarity was requested with regard to the decision-making in relation to the options contained within the report, with specific regard to the proposal to replace the bridge ‘life-for-like’.  In response it was stated that the commitment to bring Metrolink to Stockport was reflected within the proposals and such was future-proofed and would ensure the longevity of Stockport Station.

 

Concern was also expressed in relation to the potential impact the necessary works might have on the local highway network and importance of putting in place traffic management measures that were sensitive to both the location and local residents.

 

RESOLVED - (1) That authority be delegated to the Deputy Chief Executive, in consultation with the S151 Officer and the Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration approval to enter into a delivery agreement with Network Rail to progress optioneering, appraisal and design of the enhanced option, the estimated cost is up to £0.5m to be funded by Transforming Cities Fund 2.

 

(2) That approval be given to Council officers working with officers from TfGM to seek approval for an appropriate release of development funding including from the identified £7m Transforming Cities Fund 2.
