I realise some of you who haven’t followed the history of this scheme may wonder why 
there are often two sets of documents for each aspect of the assessment.  The scheme 
on which DfT Ministers gave initial approval is that from the Postwick junction (A47) to 
the A140. That is what we now need to assess.  Norfolk are paying to extend the 
scheme to the A1067. They have provided some equivalent information for the full A47-
A1067 as well as that we wanted on just the A47-A140 in case we need to compare and 
provide any information to Ministers. Hopefully this is clear but happy to clarify further.

Further to my e-mail below I have checked the FA business case and it says the 
following:
The Public Accounts Tables are presented on the basis of a DfT contribution of 
£67.49m. NCC has made a request for additional funding [in 3.4 below] and should this 
be granted the Public Accounts Tables will be updated and resubmitted.
NCC is seeking £82.49m from DfT which is the subject of the submission to Ministers. 
Depending on what he decides the documents may need to be resubmitted.

The NNDR full approval bid has arrived – the documents can be found at the following 
place:
xxxx                                   
If you want to find the originals the detail of how to obtain them from Mott Mac’s website 
are in the attached e-mail.
We are still awaiting the Minister’s response to my submission on Norfolk’s request for 
additional funding but that does not affect the economics as the total cost will stay the 

same regardless of the decision.  I would be grateful if you could do the necessary 
assessment and seek TASM’s approval to the vfm template. I would be grateful if this 
could be done by 1 September so I can include the completed template in the papers to 
be sent to LT Investment Committee for consideration at the 9 September meeting 
where I would like to obtain the Committee’s approval to the scheme. If that is a 
problem I would like to be able to provide the Committee with the template by the time 
the meeting takes place.
Please let me know if you require anything else or that all the documents are in the 
correct form.
