DECISIONS

 

40.2     The Lead Member RESOLVED to (1) recommend County Council reject the motion submitted by Councillors Rodohan and Swansborough; and

Reasons

 

40.3     The County Council adopts an Asset Management approach to the maintenance of roads and pavements as advocated by the Department for Transport.  In doing so, maintenance is informed by an Asset Plan that prioritises maintenance on the basis of need and risk across the county.

Report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport

Additional documents:

Minutes:

41.1     The Lead Member considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport.

 

DECISIONS

 

41.2     The Lead Member RESOLVED to approve the inclusion of 3 on-street time-limited parking spaces, on the eastern side of the High Street south of Bell Lane, into the trial of the new parking controls in the High Street by way of an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order.

 

Reasons

 

41.3     The 23 on-street time-limited parking spaces associated with Stage 2 of the High Street improvements have a waiting period of 30 minutes, for which the Lead Member has approved the trial of the new parking controls by way of  an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order. The 3 on-street time-limited parking spaces on the eastern side of the High Street south of Bell Lane associated with Stage 1 of the High Street improvements have a waiting period of 60 minutes. If these spaces are not included in the trial it will be confusing to drivers as there will be two different waiting periods in close proximity of one another.
