(Relevant Portfolio Holder: Councillor D Evans)
Consideration was given to the report of the Corporate Director of Place & Community, which proposed that the plans prepared for the Ormskirk Eastern Gateway in partnership with Lancashire County Council be subject to public engagement, and sought authority to spend S106 monies from development at Edge Hill University on the delivery of the Edge Hill Cycle Link as part of the Ormskirk Eastern Gateway project.
In reaching the decision below, Cabinet considered the details as set out in the report before it and the reasons contained therein.
RESOLVED: A. That the proposals for the Ormskirk Eastern Gateway set out within the report be publicly consulted upon, jointly with Lancashire County Council.
B. That the use of £276,480 of S106 monies from planning permission 2011/1079/FUL be approved for the improved provision for cycling and walking access between Ormskirk town centre and Edge Hill University as part of the Ormskirk Eastern Gateway proposals.
C. That it be noted that the proposals set out in the report would involve the commitment of the Council's £185,000 of Capital Funding allocated to the Moor Street public realm improvements and £565,000 of Heritage Action Zone funding to the Ormskirk Eastern Gateway, together with £1.25m of Lancashire County Council LTP3 funding.
D. That the report be barred to call-in because a separate report will be taken to Executive Overview & Scrutiny Committee on 28th January 2021 to seek their views on the proposals.
