Is Key decision?: Yes


The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has asked the County Council to assist in developing the detail design and implementation of the highway proposals required to support their Masterplan development. These proposals include a highway design for the area based on shared space principles similar to Fishergate’s Central Gateway project. The works will be fully funded by UCLan by way of a Section 278 Agreement under the Highways Act 1980.


This is deemed to be a Key Decision and the provisions of Standing Order No. 25 have been complied with.



County Councillor John Fillis, the Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport:


(i)   Approved the addition of this scheme, as shown on the plan attached at Appendix 'A', and the estimated £157,000 design fee to the highways block of the County Council's 2016/17 capital programme;

(ii)  Noted that further approval will be sought for the construction and site supervision costs to be added to the Capital Programme when the full extent and scope of the works has been identified and that all costs will be fully funded by UCLan under a Section 278 Agreement.


This KEY Decision was taken in accordance with the process agreed by the Executive Scrutiny Committee.
