Appendix A to the Highway Network Recovery and Community Infrastructure Levy Programme 2022/23 Report presented to the Environment Committee on
13 January 2022 identified programmed carriageway patching programme, including the following-

1. 40 m in Gresham Avenue, Coppetts Ward and 2. 80 m in Park Way, Coppetts Ward.

The work in Park Way was carried out on 13 July.

Paragraph 2.1 of the Report states 'The Work Programme is developed using an independent condition assessment survey company, Xais, who undertake a visual survey of every public highway footway and carriageway in the borough and record the data to a defined national standard. This data is added to that of the defects scores, scoring to indicate the relative position on the operational network hierarchy and location in relation to places of education and worship."

FBWRA wishes to understand the basis on which the works in Gresham Avenue and Park Way were programmed, whereas other local roads were excluded.

1. Please provide copies of the documents forming the 'paper trail' for the decision to programme the works in Gresham Avenue and Park Way and to exclude other local roads.

2. The documents provided as above should include copies of the Xais reports and the Councils own defects surveys and their scores for the whole of Gresham Avenue, Park Way, Bethune Avenue and The Ridgeway N11, Manor Drive and York Way.
