OPTION 2: That the findings of the public consultation are reported to a future meeting of the cabinet to inform a final decision on the detailed design of those elements of the project to be implemented by the council. All other matters to be delegated to the Director of Neighbourhoods as above so as to advance the project prior to this decision.


The Cabinet Member for Infrastructure and Transport explained that a joint funding bid had been submitted three years ago and the council had entered into partnership arrangements with Portsmouth City Council. The island would benefit with approximately £10 million for the project. Consultation would now take place, with the final decision to made after responses had been evaluated. There had been a historical issue with public engagement but this would now be addressed. The matter would come back to Cabinet in September to be properly considered, unless a decision was required before that, in which case a special meeting would be held. An amended Option 2 was recommended by the Cabinet Member which was agreed.
