Is subject to call in?: Yes
The Cabinet Committee received a report of the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and Environment) concerning a petition containing 26 signatures requesting the Council to not use tarmacadam when undertaking highways improvement resurfacing work in Esplanade Gardens. The petition had been referred to the Cabinet Committee for consideration by Council at its meeting held on Thursday 25th November 2021 (Minute 468 refers).
In response to questions regarding the conflicting information received in respect of the implementation of the new resurfacing policy in Chalkwell Avenue, Acacia Drive and Thorpedene Gardens, Council’s Head of Traffic & Highways undertook to investigate the matter and respond to the respective ward councillors directly.
The Head of Traffic & Highways also gave assurances to respond to the issues highlighted by Councillors relating to the re-instatement works being undertaken by City Fibre.
Having considered the views of the Traffic Regulations Working Party, it was:-
1. That the footway resurfacing programme continue to be implemented in accordance with the current resurfacing policy.
2. That the petition be noted but that the request that footway resurfacing in Esplanade Gardens in concrete slabs be refused.
3. That the lead petitioner be informed of the Councils decision.
