This report sets out progress to date on schemes in the 2021/22 Transport Capital Programme, and proposes adjustments to scheme allocations to align with the latest cost estimates and delivery projections.
i. Approved the amendments to the 2021/22 Directorate of Place Transport Capital Programme.
Reason: To implement the council’s transport strategy identified in York’s third Local Transport Plan and the Council Priorities, and deliver schemes identified in the council’s Transport Programme.
ii. Approved the increase in budget allocation and the progression of the improvements to the footway on University Road, funded by Ward Funding and from the Pedestrian Minor Schemes budget ahead of any potential future restriction to the highway.

This report asks the Executive Member to consider drafting of a further Order to extend the R39B Residents’ Priority Parking Zone to include properties in Kexby Avenue.
i. Approved the drafting of a further Order to extend the R39B Residents’ Priority Parking Zone to include properties in Kexby Avenue.
Reason: This recommendation is supported by the majority of
people from Kexby Avenue who signed the petition were in favour and is supported by the outcome of the further consultation.
ii. To not include 13-57 Thief Lane within the R39B Residents Priority Parking Zone.
Reason: This was not contained within the petition. The response to the consultation is low with four responses, 3 in support and 1 against from 23 properties.
iii. Arnside Place and Thief Lane be granted permission to purchase visitors parking permits within the R39B Resident’s Priority Parking Zone.
Reason: R39B Residents Priority Parking Zone cannot not cover Arnside Place as it is a private street. It was decided that residents would benefit from being able to access visitors passes and equally residents from the Zone could also park in Arnside Place.
