Resolved:

 

                      i.         Approved the increased engagement of the School Travel team with the Archbishop Holgate School and University of York.

 

Reason:     To help educate and encourage staff and students to

utilise alternative modes of transport and help reduce impact on nearby residential streets.

Minutes:

The Executive Member considered the report and the epetition that had been received. Officers noted that university car parks had been monitored and it was concluded that they remained well used. Officers explained that there was the option to explore a residents parking scheme in the area, however, they noted that ward councillors were not in support of additional residential parking schemes.

 

The Executive Member noted that residents parking schemes were designed to give residents an advantage to park in their local area and acknowledged that there were issues of displaced parking from the university. He noted that the proposal to increase engagement with Archbishop Holgate School and University of York by the School Travel team was the correct response to try and reduce displaced parking in residential areas.
