The motion for the Extraordinary Meeting has been published. I am not sure when as I have been on a zoom call. If it was after 5pm as appears likely (my meeting started then) it gave no time for residents to study the motion before the deadline for making an application to speak passed.
I hope officers will recognise this and make allowances for requests received after 'close of play'.
Extraordinary Council Meeting – 16 October 2020
Motion submitted by members who have requisitioned the Extraordinary Council meeting
Healthy Neighbourhood Scheme
To instruct the Lead Member for Regeneration, Property & Planning to provide a comprehensive rational for the introduction of the temporary Healthy Neighbourhoods in the various areas.
This to provide details about how these areas have been chosen; how it impact targets; mitigations, if any; viability of the monitoring of the scheme; what prior public and stakeholder engagement has taken place; the equity of the trade-off between loser residential streets and gainers; the risk of increased congestion on certain residential roads and implications on emissions; the methodology to be used to evaluate the outcome, notably the goal of lower overall traffic volumes; and the measurements in place to secure adequate baseline data for ALL streets affected (including the connector roads).
