1 Broadgate Section 278 Highway Works

Report of the Executive Director, Environment


The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director of Environment regarding Section 278 highway works at 1 Broadgate. The Executive Director of Environment introduced the report and explained that the proposals were put to the Planning & Transportation Committee rather than the Streets & Walkways Sub Committee due to the exchanges of land proposed as part of the scheme.


RESOLVED – That the Planning & Transportation Committee:


  1. Authorise officers to proceed with the statutory process and legal agreements required to progress the highway boundary adjustments (appendix 2) pursuant to Section 256 of the Highways Act 1980;


  1. Delegate authority to consider any objection to the advertised Section 256 application, and whether to proceed, to the Executive Director Environment (in consultation with the City Solicitor);


  1. Delegate any budget adjustments to the Chief Officer should further Section 278 funds be required from the developer prior to Gateway 5 approval; and


  1. Authorise officers to enter into a Section 278 agreement with British Land.
