To consider a report from the Director for the Economy, a copy is attached as item 14.
Before the Committee was a report by the Director for the Economy, copies of which had been circulated to all Members and a copy of which is attached to the signed copy of these minutes as Item 14.
Following a report to the Joint Strategic Committee on 3 April 2019, the report updated Members in Adur of the progress made in regards to the partnership working for the coastal defence scheme from Brighton Marina to The River Adur. Those works were now planned for 2030/31.
The report sought continued support for the partnership scheme led by Brighton & Hove City Council and asked the Committee to note the need for provision in the 2030/31 Capital Investment Budget for the project costs estimated at £1.7m
The recommendation in the report was proposed by Councillor Neil Parkin, seconded by Councillor Brian Boggis and unanimously approved.
The Joint Strategic Committee
(i) agreed Adur District Council’s continued support to the partnership scheme led by Brighton & Hove City Council; and
(ii) noted that budget provision would need to be made in the 2030/31 Capital Investment Budget for the project costs estimated at £1.7m for coastal defence works at Kingston Beach funded by Adur District Council and that a provision of £65,050 would be needed in the revenue budget for the associated debt charges.
The call-in deadline for this decision will be 5.00pm on 17 July 2020.
