Minutes:

The report provided an update to the Executive Member on petitions received in relation to the Transport portfolio. The Executive Member considered the petitions, several were in relation to residents parking and it was confirmed they would be added to the waiting list for consideration.

 

Other petitions were noted as being in relation to the condition of the highway. It was noted that the Executive had approved the Highways Infrastructure Asset Management Plan in October of 2021 and this plan was used to determine each year which roads were prioritised for improvements. Officers noted that there was not a sufficient budget to be able to improve the entire road network and therefore officers would meet with Ward Councillors about the possibility of using ward highway budgets for these highways improvements.

 

Petitions in relation to speed calming measures were noted and the Executive Member noted the progress on the speed management scheme, he also noted that residents could raise concerns with the Safer York Partnership who worked alongside the police.

 

A question had been raised by a member of the public about why a newly adopted road Government House Grove would see maintenance improvements by the council. Officers noted that the Council had maintained the road for around 20 years but that historical records had meant the Council only formally adopted the street recently, they noted that the street required improvements and qualified appropriately under Council policy.
