Called-In Item: City of York Local Transport Plan 3 - Draft 'Framework' LTP3 Consultation Responses

To consider any specific recommendations made on the above item by the Scrutiny Management Committee (Calling In), at their meeting on 10 January 2011, to the Executive Member for City Strategy.


The report on this item was published as part of the agenda for the Executive Member Decision Session held on 4 January 2011 and the agenda for the Scrutiny Management Committee (Calling In) to be held on 10 January.  The links to those agendas on the Council’s website are provided below:






Members considered an item which had appeared on the agenda for the Decision Session of the Executive Member for City Strategy held on 4 January 2011.  The item related to a report which detailed the responses received to consultation on the draft Framework Local Transport Plan (LTP) 3, prior to submission of a draft full LTP3.


This item had been called in by Cllrs Merrett, Potter and Simpson-Laing prior to a decision being taken by the Executive Member.  It had subsequently been considered by the Scrutiny Management Committee (SMC) (Calling In) at a meeting on 10 January 2011.  The SMC (Calling In) had resolved:


“That Option B be approved and that the matter be referred to the Executive (Calling In) meeting, with a specific recommendation that the Executive Member for City Strategy take into account the results of consultation on the 20 mph speed limit as an important part of the LTP3 strategy.”


Cllr Galvin addressed the meeting as Chair of the SMC, explaining the Committee’s view that there was strong support amongst residents for a 20 mph speed limit and that the consultation results should be taken into account at this stage, given that the LTP3 would be presented to Executive on 15 March and the deadline for submission of the final version was 30 March.  The Executive Member for City Strategy responded that the consultation results, and the results of the trial in Fishergate, would be presented to his Decision Session on 1 February along with the draft LTP3, and that this would be a more appropriate time to consider matters for inclusion in the LTP3 prior to submission of the final version.


Having debated the matter, it was


RESOLVED: (i)         That it be noted that the results of the residents’ survey on 20 mph speed limits will be presented to the Decision Session of the Executive Member for City Strategy on Tuesday 1 February 2011.


                        (ii)        That it is expected that the impact of vehicle speed on road safety will form part of the LTP3 strategy when it is considered at the Executive meeting on 15 March 2011.


REASON:      In accordance with the calling-in procedure and to take account of the advice offered by the Scrutiny Management Committee (Calling In).
