*Re-published: call-in no longer applies* Re: Road Classification of the Proposed Realignment at Kex Gill

Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Business and Environmental Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


“Guidance on Road Classification and the Primary Route Network”, DfT, March 2012, sets out that local authorities may now make road classifications (other than on the Secretary of State’s road network) under the powers conferred on the Secretary of State by section 12 of the Highways Act 1980.

A planning application for the scheme is submitted for determination. A DfT decision regarding funding to build a realigned section of the road at Kex Gill is awaited. The Council (under delegated powers conferred by paragraph 4.4(d) of Schedule 4 of Part 3 of the County Council’s Constitution) hereby provisionally classifies the realigned section of the proposed road, and it shall be designated as the A59. See the attached plan.

Reasons for the decision:

*PLEASE NOTE This decision was originally published on or near the date of the decision and so call in no longer applies. It has been re-published as part of the change in committee management system that we use.*

A Side Roads Order and a Compulsory Purchase Order are necessary in order to construct the proposed road. The provisional classification of the road must be made before the Side Roads Order can be made.
A “Roads Classification & PRN Change” form recording the provisional registration will be completed and submitted to GeoPlace, who are administering the process for local authorities to communicate changes to the Road Classification and Primary Route Network on behalf of the Secretary of State for Transport. The Council will also send notice of the provisional classification in its monthly update to the National Street Gazetteer.
