Decision Maker: Policy and Resources Committee, Council

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

Consideration of the order as part of the budget setting process. Approval to consult will be sought before coming back to committee in the New Year.

Decision:

RESOLVED:

a)     To note the external consultant’s (Steer) Parking Strategy review and its key findings and recommendations;

b)     The Committee to consider any future disposal of city centre car parks identified in the current Local Plan on a case by case basis following specific public consultation and provided there is evidence of overall spare capacity;

c)     To undertake public consultation on the closure of Northgate Car Park;

d)     To consider any additional city centre car park disposals through the review of the next Local Plan;

e)     That the Off Street Parking Places Order (OSPPO) changes contained in Appendix 7 are taken to public consultation;

f)      That the car park improvements identified in paragraph 2.6 are included in the council’s capital Budget; and

g)     That a decision on whether to provide zero emission buses in the next Park & Ride contract will be made when tenders are evaluated in April 2020.

 

Reason for the decision: The proposals would help to meet the existing objectives of the parking strategy, many of the proposals would have a positive impact of climate change and the additional revenue raised would be used to fund other transport/parking improvements that council may wish to deliver as well helping to close the council’s overall funding gap and maintain essential services.
