The report proposes a scoring methodology for assessing the priority requests for new non advertising shelters

i.              Delete Scoring Detail for Initial Criteria, Criterion 3, NB1


ii.            Point a) of Scoring Detail for Sites Identified as Feasible to read “Each site would be observed during a one hour morning and afternoon/evening peak and one hour morning and afternoon/ evening off-peak period, and numbers of users counted. They would then be prioritised in order of popularity in conjunction with the bus stop usage figures supplied by the bus operators”.


iii.           To Scoring Detail for Sites Identified as Feasible add point c) to read “Locations with high demographic numbers of elderly and/or vulnerable people, as measured by partner organisations such as Brighton & Hove Connected, would be given an additional point”.
