Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
The Cabinet considered a report of the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and Environment) on a new policy for the management of temporary roadside memorials, and permanent infrastructure on the highway.
That the new policy for Highway Memorials appended to the submitted report, be adopted.
Reason for Decision:
This policy will ensure the Council is able to sensitively support those affected by the death of a loved one and ensure their wishes can be facilitated whilst still delivering on statutory duties and powers in respect of the road network.
The Council could decide on an alternative approach, or to prohibit any temporary roadside memorials or permanent tributes.
