Notice of Motion - Kent Elms Junction pdf icon PDF 46 KB

Notice of Motion attached

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Resolved:

 

That in accordance with Standing Order 8.4 the following Notice of Motion, be referred to the Cabinet Committee:

 

‘The current eastbound lane configuration at Kent Elms Corner deploys a three lane into two lane setup and is causing drivers considerable concern and frustration.

 

There have been a number of near misses and anyone who has driven through this junction will know of the unnecessary trepidation that this experience brings through the short distance of travel before the outside and middle lanes converge.

 

A much better usage of this junction can be achieved by dedicating the near side lane into a left turn only and leaving the other two lanes to go straight ahead. A new configuration will allow an easier traffic flow thus removing any unnecessary congestion and improving the air quality in the immediate vicinity.

 

It is therefore proposed that this Council removes the third lane for eastbound traffic after the junction with the painting of a hatched area in that lane and repainting of the two straight ahead lanes (currently the middle and outside lane). No engineering costs will be required.’

 

Proposed: Cllr David McGlone

Seconded: Cllr Steve Aylen

Notice of Motion - Seaways Car Park Development pdf icon PDF 62 KB

Notice of Motion attached

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Resolved:

 

That in accordance with Standing Order 8.4 the following Notice of Motion, be referred to the Cabinet and in the event that the Cabinet decision on 25th February 2020 relating to the same matter (Seaway Development) is called in to Policy and Resources Scrutiny Committee on 18th March 2020, the motion will also be referred to that Committee:

 

‘Seaway Car Park Development

 

Any viable development on Seaway Car Park must support tourism and satisfy the seafront’s parking needs. The proposed development by Turnstone Estates comprised a 1370 seat multiscreen cinema, 10 restaurants, an 80 bedroom hotel, bowling alley and an amusement centre.

 

Currently, there are 661 car parking spaces at Seaway Car Park. The proposals only contained provision for 555 car parking spaces. Turnstone Estates contract expired on the 17th January 2020.

 

At a meeting of Full Council in February 2019, both the now Leader and Deputy Leader of the Council are on record as saying that there would be no second extension and this was ‘last chance saloon’ for Turnstone Estates to get the required planning permission.

 

At the Development & Control Committee on the 15th January 2020, councillors deferred planning on the development citing concerns around parking and non-compliance of Council Policies.

 

This Council therefore resolves that it should:

 

1. Not provide a second extension to Turnstone Estates on their current contract as the Heads of Terms only allowed for an automatic extension upon refusal by the Development & Control Committee.

 

2. Re-tender the proposals.

 

3. Any new tender specification to include significantly more car park spaces and address all other concerns raised at the Development & Control Committee meeting on the 15th January 2020.’

 

Proposed By: Cllr Cox

Seconded by: Cllr Buck

 

Supported by: Cllr Davidson, Cllr Boyd, Cllr Bright, Cllr Burzotta, Cllr Dear, Cllr Evans, Cllr Folkard, Cllr Garne, Cllr Garston, Cllr Habermel, Cllr Jarvis, Cllr McGlone, Cllr Moring, Cllr Nelson, Cllr Salter, Cllr Walker
