Report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport
28.1 The Lead Member considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport, together with an amended Appendix 3. .
28.2 The Lead Member RESOLVED to (1) rescind the highway scheme approved for the A28/B2089 junction in Broad Oak, Brede as shown at Appendix 1;
(2) remove the scheme from the County Council’s highway terrier; and
(3) endorse officers continuing to engage with the Parish Council to identify appropriate measures to improve the safety of the junction.
28.3 The scheme as currently designed is not a solution to address the issues that have been raised with the junction. The historic nature of the scheme and the need to compulsorily purchase land means it is unlikely that the scheme would be implemented by the County Council, given the stated priorities in the Local Transport Plan 2011-2026.
