To determine the post Options Assessment Report consultation arrangements for the Harrogate Relief Road Review project.

Alternative options considered:

1. To consult as originally proposed on both Package B and Package E whilst noting the views and recommendations of the Area Committee.

2. To agree in principle with the recommendations of the Area Committee and request that officers investigate the costs and timescales of any necessary further work to develop Package B and assess the potential implications of discounting package E at this early stage on the future Transport Business Case and the potential for it to attract the necessary funding.

3. To undertake further development work on the sustainable transport elements of both Package B and Package E with a view to a future decision on consultation based on a greater level of assessment of the options.
