Detail of outcome
Department for Transport’s response features a summary of the response received to this consultation. It also provides details of:
- the decision made on how the local highway maintenance funding is to be allocated
- the agreement reached on a £4.7 billion needs based element of the funding
- the creation of a £575 million Challenge fund
- an additional incentive element for the 2016 to 2017 funding year
This consultation follows an earlier consultation the department undertook this year in which we sought feedback from local authorities, the maintenance sector and other key organisations with an interest.
It is important that we seek final views on our proposals and recognise that authorities are eager to learn what funding they will be receiving from April next year for local highways maintenance so they can plan their maintenance strategies accordingly.
We are hoping to be in a position to announce funding allocations later this year.
