Greater Brighton Annual Report 2018/19

Report of the Chair, Greater Brighton Officer Programme Board

Decision:

1)           That the Board approve the 2018/19 Annual Report.

 

2)           That Board members submit the 2018/19 Annual Report to their respective organisations.

Minutes:

7.1         The Board considered a report of the Chair, Greater Brighton Officer Programme Board that sought approval for the Board’s Annual Report as required by its Heads of Terms.

 

7.2         Councillor Mac Cafferty observed that the report detailed that work on One Public Estate had not accelerated as quickly as had been hoped particularly in relation to land occupied by Network Rail and the Ministry of Defence.

 

7.3         Geoff Raw replied that whilst it was true to say that progress had not been made as quickly as was hoped and there had been challenges with some public sector partners but also progress with others. This was true in the case of Brighton & Hove where there was closer working with the NHS.

 

7.4         Andy Hill added that an annual report on One Public Estate considered by the Board.

 

7.5         Councillor James stated that Arun had for many years required improvements to its transport links and any help partners would be able to offer would be welcomed. Furthermore, Arun required investment from Network Rail to improve connectivity between Worthing and Horsham that was not a testing ask given this concerned only a small amount of track.

 

7.6         Andrew Swayne stated that in his view, there was little prospect of bypass on the A27 between Worthing and Lancing.

 

7.7         The Chair agreed on the need for improved connectivity between Worthing and Horsham however, issues of congestion at Windmill Junction would need to be resolved first.

 

7.8         RESOLVED-

 

1)           That the Board approve the 2018/19 Annual Report.

 

2)           That Board members submit the 2018/19 Annual Report to their respective organisations.
