Decision:

RESOLVED: That the views of the Traffic Congestion Ad Hoc Scrutiny Committee be noted and that where appropriate they, together with the Officer updates and the comments of the Executive as set out in the annex to these minutes, be fed into the build process for the Local Transport Plan 3:

 

REASON:      In order to provide an appropriate response to the findings of the Traffic Congestion Ad Hoc Scrutiny Committee.

Minutes:

Members considered a report which presented the findings of the Traffic Congestion Ad Hoc Scrutiny Committee following their review of Traffic Congestion in York.

 

The Committee’s recommendations were set out in paragraphs 28 to 30 of their report and summarised in a table at paragraph 10 of the covering report.  They comprised recommendations to be implemented in the short term, as part of the preparatory and ongoing work for the third Local Transport Plan (LTP 3), and recommendations making up a longer term strategic response to tackling congestion from LTP 3 onwards.

 

Cllr Merrett, as Chair of the Committee, was in attendance to present the report and respond to any questions.  He explained that the recommendations before Members today related only to short and medium term actions.  The Committee would shortly be meeting again to consider the results of consultation on its long term proposals and any further recommendations arising from this meeting would be brought to the Executive in due course.  He highlighted improvements to public transport and the impact of smart travel measures as the two most important aspects of the recommendations in the report.

 

RESOLVED: That the views of the Traffic Congestion Ad Hoc Scrutiny Committee be noted and that where appropriate they, together with the Officer updates and the comments of the Executive as set out in the annex to these minutes, be fed into the build process for the Local Transport Plan 3.1*

 

REASON:      In order to provide an appropriate response to the findings of the Traffic Congestion Ad Hoc Scrutiny Committee.

 

*Note: The above resolution was called in and was subsequently amended at a meeting of the Executive (Calling In) held on 5 May 2010.  Please see the minutes of that meeting for the final decision on this item.
