Decision details

April 24 - Local Deterioration Fund 2023/24

Decision Maker: Director of Highways and Transport

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No


On the 7th March 2024, Cabinet approved a total value of £2.8m, to be apportioned for Local Deterioration Schemes, funded from the Department for Transport Highway Maintenance Grant Award 2024/25: £28.811million.

The LDF schemes in Appendix A have been prioritised by calculating the number of repeated visits to fix defects at the same location. The scheme size is generally under 2000m2, which equates to an operational team conducting either one or two days resurfacing, depending of the construction depth. This is to maximise efficiency of the workforce. The funding apportionment is divided into programme tranches throughout the year. Before each tranche is released, new up to date data is used in the analysis, to ensure roads that have deteriorated within year and over the winter period are taken into consideration.


John Davies, Head of Highways Management, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for, and Director of, Highways and Transport, took the decision to approve:

  • A value of £879,017 to be allocated to schemes (Tranche 1) detailed in Appendix A from the Local Deterioration Fund (LDF) apportionment 2024/25, funded from the Department for Transport Highway Maintenance Grant
