Growth Deal funding for Bridge between Oxpens and Osney Mead
Cabinet, on 16 March 2022, resolved to:
1. Approve, subject to agreement with Oxfordshire County Council and Future Oxfordshire Partnership (formerly Oxfordshire Growth Board) an amended funding agreement to allow additional design fees to be drawn down from the funding allocation and delegate to the Executive Director (Development) in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Planning and Housing Delivery, the Head of Law and Governance, and the Head of Financial Services, the detailed wording of an amended agreement to address the funding and programme issues; and
3. Delegate to the Executive Director (Development) in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Planning and Housing Delivery, the decision on the preferred option for the bridge for consultation, and then the submission of a planning application if deemed appropriate.
The Executive Director for Communities and People has subsequently been authorised to exercise this delegation due to a potential for conflict with the Executive Director for Development’s role on the OXWED board.
