Rottingdean High Street - Traffic and Air Quality

Decision Maker: Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Report will outline the background to, current status of, and possible options to address, traffic and air quality issues in Rottingdean High Street in response to a Petition and Notice of Motion presented to Council on 20 July 2016.


1)            The Committee recommends that the options and considerations outlined within this report regarding possible measures or schemes that could improve traffic flow and reduce air pollution in Rottingdean village, and especially the High Street, are best taken forward by the RPC liaison group. [This will avoid duplication of officer resources and ensure that more time can be spent on exploring the options for implementation referred to at 2.3 below.} This group should be appropriately resourced, including with the attendance of a senior officer, to be decided by the Executive Director following consultation with the Chair of the Committee and Lead Opposition Spokespersons and should meet on a quarterly basis.


2)            The Committee agrees that a report be brought back to ET&S Committee on an annual basis updating on progress.


3)            The Committee notes the potential sources of funding outlined in paragraph 7.2 and agrees that sufficient resources are explored from the 2017/18 LTP Capital Programme and the Transport division’s revenue budget and beyond, to look to implement the Task & Finish Group’s and RPC liasion Group’s work and recommendations based on traffic modelling.
