Update on Project
At the Accountability Board meeting in September 2021 a change request was considered for the project. The Board agreed that the change request should not be implemented as there were significant outstanding risks to both delivery and realisation of benefits as the project did not meet all the conditions for spend beyond 30 September 2021. It was agreed that the remaining £623,389 LGF should be reallocated to alternative projects on the LGF project pipeline. Accountability Board Meeting Minutes 10 September 2021
The third phase of the project to link the cycle network from Birchwood Avenue through to the Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council boundary will now seek alternative funding.
