4.               Cashless Parking Review (10:19am)




a.           That the cashless parking consultation results contained with annexes B to P of the report be noted.


Reason: To ensure that decisions are informed by and give due regard to the views of residents and the impacts of any change.


b.           That cash payment be removed and offer pay by phone as the only way to pay on street for pay and display.


Reason: To give effect to the Full Council Budget Decision. These are the machines most in need of replacement, the level of investment required to replace them and add debit, credit and pre-paid cash card and contactless cannot be justified.


c.           That cash payment be retained at Bootham Row and Castle Car Parks, for those who cannot use the app or do not have access to a card.

Reason: Gives effect to the consultation that has identified impacts of going cashless on people, some of whom will have protected characteristics. The two car parks recommended are the Gold Standard car parks identified in the access review.




5.               Acomb Front Street Phase 2 - open public engagement on costed designs and ideas for the scheme (10:32am)




That open public engagement on the Acomb Front Street phase 2 project approach be approved, in order to test costed designs and ideas for the scheme and receive feedback.




Public engagement, and analysis of feedback responses, is essential to enable officers to finalise detailed designs for the phase 2 works that benefit from public engagement comments; and to ensure that a fully costed scheme can be presented to Executive for consideration and approval to proceed in summer 2024.
