The Director of Transport, Planning and Environment and the Head of Transport presented a report which sought endorsement of a strategy, developed with partners, to be used as a framework for the delivery of road safety interventions in the city.

 

The draft strategy, attached at Annex A to the report, incorporated changes made to address comments made by the Executive Member for Transport on the importance of active travel. Comments by partners on prioritisation of resources would be progressed through the review of the governance processes outlined in paragraphs 28-29 of the report.  Consultation on the detailed approach to addressing road safety concerns in the city would take place as part of the Local Transport Plan development.

 

Members were invited to consider whether to:

·        Endorse the strategy, as recommended (Option 1);

·        Endorse the strategy with comments to be addressed in the final version subject to approval by partners (Option 2);

·        Reject the strategy (Option 3).
