Briefing Note of the Director of Streetscene and Regulatory Services


The Scrutiny Co-ordination Committee will consider the call in indicated below.  In accordance with the Constitution, at least one of those Members must be in attendance at the meeting for consideration of their call in.


Cabinet Member for Policing and Equalities – 3 December, 2020


Cabinet Member, Councillor A S Khan, who has been invited to attend this meeting.


The report of the Director of Streetscene and Regulatory Services is attached as an appendix to the Briefing Note.


The Cabinet Member has agreed to:-


1.  Consider the objections to the proposed introduction of parking charges.


2.  Subject to Recommendation 1, approve the implementation of the charging structure at the War Memorial Park as detailed in Appendix 2 to this report, noting that this will be undertaken by making of the said variation Order


Decision called in by Councillor A Andrews, R Bailey and G Ridley


Their reason for the call in :-


“Whilst the principle of introducing charges at the War Memorial Park was approved at a meeting held on the 25th February 2020, the public consultation was not held until October 2020. At the Cabinet Member meeting held on December 2020, insufficient information and data was presented to the Cabinet Member in relation to the potential impact of displacement parking in local residential roads.


We would like to consider this matter in further depth including with officers from our highways team.”
