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>
