star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Government firmly believes in localism and providing local authorities with powers to introduce measures to deal with local needs and conditions. Local authorities will invariably have a strategy to improve road safety and will prioritise their road network based on the need to reduce casualties. </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The provision of the school crossing patrol service is a matter for the local authority. Legislation gives them the power to make arrangements for the patrolling of places where children cross roads on their way to or from school, but does not impose a duty on them to do so. Funding decisions are also a matter for the local authority based on their local needs and priorities.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>It is for the Council to assess the crossing situation and determine a course of action as it is in this situation. In some cases, if the authority agrees that children from a particular school need help in crossing a busy road but have not recruited anyone, they have to think about finding other ways of making the crossing safer - for example, by putting in a pedestrian crossing.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Transport provides capital funding to local highway authorities, including Essex County Council, from the local highways maintenance capital block grant. Harlow falls within Essex County Council's area of responsibility and therefore we do not allocate any funds directly to the Borough Council for road maintenance.</p><p> </p><p>Since 2004 the Department has allocated the following amounts to Essex for highway maintenance:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><strong>Year</strong></td><td><p><strong>£m</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td>2004/05</td><td><p>12.626</p></td></tr><tr><td>2005/06</td><td><p>15.782</p></td></tr><tr><td>2006/07</td><td><p>16.682</p></td></tr><tr><td>2007/08</td><td><p>22.428</p></td></tr><tr><td>2008/09</td><td><p>20.706</p></td></tr><tr><td>2009/10</td><td><p>21.361</p></td></tr><tr><td>2010/11</td><td><p>20.959</p></td></tr><tr><td>2011/12</td><td><p>20.728</p></td></tr><tr><td>2012/13</td><td><p>19.838</p></td></tr><tr><td>2013/14</td><td><p>22.482*</p></td></tr><tr><td>2014/15</td><td><p>19.873*</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>* includes the top up announced in the 2012 Autumn Statement.</p><p>The Department also allocated additional funding to authorities to help repair roads damaged by various weather events and this included a further £2.116 million to Essex County Council in 2010/11 and £5.301 million in March 2011. More recently the Department for Transport has agreed to allocate over £2.7 million due to the severe wet weather the country has encountered.</p><p> </p><p>A £200 million Pothole Fund was announced in the Budget on 19 March 2014. From this, £168 million is being made available to councils in England through a bidding exercise. Further details on the fund will be made available in the coming weeks.</p><p><br>Local authorities are also able to use revenue funding allocated by the Department for Communities and Local Government through the Revenue Support Grant for maintaining their local highways. Neither capital nor revenue highways maintenance funding is ring-fenced and it is for local highway authorities to decide upon their spending priorities across the whole range of services they provide.</p><p>The Department for Transport does not centrally hold information on what proportion of this funding is spent by Essex County Council on repairing potholes.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p><strong> </strong></p><p>The Government takes the environmental implications of exploiting high carbon intensity crudes very seriously and fully supports the aim of the Fuel Quality Directive to reduce carbon emissions. We also believe that the accounting methodology must be proportionate in the burden placed on suppliers. The European Commission's proposals for a greenhouse gas intensity accounting methodology to implement Article 7a failed to receive agreement in 2012, and we await the publication of a revised proposal and impact assessment.</p><p> </p><p>The Department consulted on measures to implement Article 7(a –e) of the Directive between March and June 2011. The core costs envisaged in the impact assessment relate to putting in place a 6% greenhouse gas emissions savings target to 2020, the supply of biofuels and other compliance measures required to achieve these reductions. The costs of delivering such measures are subject to a very high degree of uncertainty given that EU negotiations on key elements for implementing the Directive have not yet concluded. Based on a range of provisional assumptions, it was estimated that, relative to the cost of policy currently in place, the impact in 2020 would be an increase of 0.5 pence per litre on petrol and 2.5 pence per litre on road diesel. A full analysis is presented in the impact assessment published on 10 March 2011 which can be found at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/consultation-on-proposals-to-implement-articles-7a-to-7e-of-the-eu-fuel-quality-directive-fqd-directive-98-70-ec-as-amended-by-2009-30-ec-requiring-suppliers-to-reduce-the-lifecycle-greenshouse-gas-intensity-of-transport-fuels-and-introducing-sustaina" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/consultation-on-proposals-to-implement-articles-7a-to-7e-of-the-eu-fuel-quality-directive-fqd-directive-98-70-ec-as-amended-by-2009-30-ec-requiring-suppliers-to-reduce-the-lifecycle-greenshouse-gas-intensity-of-transport-fuels-and-introducing-sustaina</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The UK has not yet set a trajectory for biofuel supply to meet the 6% greenhouse gas emissions savings target required in 2020. Any associated increase in targets for the supply of biofuel and other compliance measures would be the subject of a further consultation and a revised impact assessment which would carefully consider the impact on the motorist and the environment.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
