Highways Agency

At the Council meeting on 5th December, 2019, the following Motion was presented by Cllr. Abul Chowdhury:


“This Council recognises that the standard of highways in this Borough is crucially important to local people.


The current response and priority given to Rushmoor has been problematical since agency agreements with Hampshire CC have been amended over the years.


We believe that it’s essential for the good of our residents that we take back some control of our own highways’ issues.


We call on those responsible in Hampshire and Rushmoor to enter into negotiations to allow this Council to take back more control of highways in Rushmoor, with Hampshire delegating the necessary resources through a revised agency arrangement.”


The Council agreed to refer the issue to this Committee and Cllr. Chowdhury has been invited to the meeting to present the Motion. The Committee will be asked to hold a preliminary discussion and agreed the process to be followed in considering the Motion.
