The report covered the content of Phase 14 of the Action Plan and provided an update on the Borough’s parking reviews. 

 

A list of location requests recommended for consideration in Phase 14 of the Parking Action Plan was attached at Annex 1 to the report.  A further list was attached at Annex 2 and would be held on a ‘holding list’ for consideration in future phases of the Plan.  It was recommended that the locations and proposals in Annex 1 be taken forward for investigation and then to informal consultation; and that the response to the informal consultation be reported to a future meeting of the Board.

 

Following consideration by the Joint Transportation Board, the Cabinet Member for Technical and Waste Services resolved that:

 

(1)         the proposals for each location listed in Phase 14 of the Parking Action Plan, as set out at Annex 1 to the report, be taken forward for investigation and informal consultation; and
