Links to Cycle Route Through Hospital Grounds: Proposed Link from the Hospital to Foss Islands Route
Decision Maker: Executive Members for City Strategy and Advisory Panel
Decision status: Implemented
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
Purpose of report: Cyclists will benefit from
a continuous cycle route from the existing Foss Islands Cycle
Route, through York Hospital to Bootham. This scheme will provide a
missing link in York's cycle network, and crucially, form part of
the Haxby to Station route agreed with Cycling England as part of
York becoming a Cycle City. Funding for this scheme has been
allocated within the 08/09 Capital Programme. Therefore, the aim is
to implement the scheme by the end of March 2009. The benefits of
the improvements for cyclists would be seen immediately. This route
through the hospital would avoid cyclists having to ride on-road
along the busy Wigginton Road.
Members are asked to: Approve the proposals for implementation.
Advice of the Advisory Panel
That the Executive Member for City Strategy be advised to defer consideration of the proposals for this section of the cycle route, to enable Officers to re-examine all the options for this scheme and report back to the EMAP. 1.
Decision of the Executive Member for City Strategy
RESOLVED:That the advice of the Advisory Panel be accepted and endorsed.
REASON: In view of further objections received to the proposed scheme.
