Hi [DfT] 
Many thanks for the submission.
The Minister has considered the advice and - to prevent further delay to scheme - believes in this 
instance we should make an exception to our policy of not providing additional funding
He wishes us to negotiate a smaller amount than has been requested (your suggestion of £10 million 
seems sensible).
Kind regards,

Please find attached a submission on the following issue:
Norwich Northern Distributor Road – Cost Increase
Whether to agree to provide additional funding (up to £15.8m) to Norfolk C.C. to 
cover the increased cost of the Norwich Northern Distributor Road.
That you note the options at paragraph 7 [in the submission] and provide a steer on 
your preferred option
Routine - however Norfolk cannot submit the final approval bid for the scheme until 
they can confirm that all the funding is available and have asked for an early 

response so as to keep up the momentum. 
This submission has been cleared by Finance and Press Office.
