Minutes:

It was reported that there had been four registrations to speak at the meeting under the Council’s Public Participation Scheme.

 

Matt Driver spoke on the poor road quality on Buttacre Lane. He noted that the road was not a green lane and the road surface was difficult to navigate with issues affecting homes on the road such as mud and dust.

 

John Henderson challenged the Council’s assessment that part of Buttacre Lane was a green lane. He asked the Executive Member to reject option one as it was unfair that roads like Buttacre Lane would not be repaired due to budget issues.

 

Daryl Thompson confirmed that a Section 56 notice had been submitted in relation to Buttacre Lane and asked that the Council agree to resurface the first section of the road.

 

Cllr Hook noted that she had raised the issue of the road surface on Buttacre Lane in 2019. She confirmed that officers had joined her at the road to inspect and recognised the issues with the current surface. However, she confirmed this had not been followed up on to improve the road surface.

The Executive Member welcomed the consultation results, which showed a desire for those accessing the local school to move to walking or cycling if infrastructure made it more accessible. With the agreed option officers noted that parking restrictions which are outlined as being required, would follow a separate consultation process inline with policy on the implantation of parking restrictions.
