Street Lighting Policy
Decision Maker: Decision Session - Executive Member for Transport
Decision status: Decision Made
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
Purpose of the report: To update the Street Lighting Policy and
clarify the relationship with the City of York Streetscape Strategy
and Guidelines following consideration of the original report at
Executive Member for Transport and Planning Decision Session on
12th July and subsequent discussion at Economy and Place Policy
Development Committee on 18 September.
The Executive Member is asked to consider the report and approve the updated Street Lighting Policy.
(i) That the redrafted Street Lighting Policy be approved
(ii) That delegation be given to the Assistant Director, (Transport, Highways and Environment), in consultation with the Executive Member for Transport and Planning, to add a further section to the policy to ensure that Ward Councillors and Parish Councils are consulted on columns in conservation areas as well as the full programme of column replacements being published. This will need to include a mechanism based on majority public opinion for Ward Councillors to request a review by the Executive Member.
(ii) That the Streetscape Strategy and Guidance be taken into consideration but treated as guidance only, and not policy, until such time as it is reviewed and adopted.
Reason: To ensure a proportionate and consistent approach to the management of street lighting across the city.
