Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report which presented a petition submitted by Councillor Sue Hunter, Ward Member for Westfield Ward, requesting that alleyways 30-38 Gale Lane,1-9 Bachelor Hill and to the rear of 11-15 Bachelor Hill be gated for reasons of security.  The Executive Member is asked to consider not progressing the request at this time, but to add the request to the list of other requests for Alley-gating so that it may be prioritised accordingly. 

 

It was reported that since the agenda was published, there had been two further written representations as follows:

·        A further representation from Councillor Hunter detailing an amendment requested by residents that the southern gate in the alleyway between Gale Lane and Bachelor Hill should be positioned after the streetlight walking from the junction with Bachelor Hill with Gale Lane due to low walls of the surrounding properties.

·        A representation from two residents of Bachelor Hill highlighting problems they have experienced with the alleyway at the rear of their home.

 

The Executive Member commented that while the petition does have merit, the crime and anti-social behaviour statistics from the Police show that there were no recorded crimes in the area, therefore he agreed to add the alleyways to the list of requests, along with the additional alleyways connecting Gale Lane to Haddon Close/Tennent Mews as detailed in the report.

 

 

Resolved:           That the Executive Member agreed:

 

 

Not to progress the petition request at this time, but add the two alleyways in questions to the list of other alley-gating requests to be prioritised accordingly.

 

Reason:              The requirements of the legislation are not currently being met in this instance.
