21.1 The Committee considered a petition referred from the Full Council meeting on 16 July 2015 and signed by 189 that requested the installation of a pedestrian crossing on Brentwood Road, opposite Hollingdean Children’s Centre.
21.2 The Chair provided the following response:
“Thank you for your petition.
All requests for new or
improved road crossings across the city are analysed rigorously by
our Road Safety team. They look at a number of factors including
collision data, the width of the road, proximity of junctions and speeds of vehicles.
The way these assessments are carried out has been approved by full council.
Our programme of road crossing works for 2015-16 was agreed earlier this year and is currently being implemented.
Recommendations for 2016-17 based on the highest priority sites across the city are expected to be considered by the Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee at a future meeting and your request will be taken into consideration”.
21.3 RESOLVED- That the petition be noted.
(ii) Proper Parking Consultation- Rachel Finn
21.4 The Committee considered a petition referred from the Full Council meeting on 16 July 2015 and signed by 253 people requesting the council to consult with residents on the type of parking controls applied when introducing new schemes.
21.5 The Chair provided the following response:
“When consulting on potential parking schemes, the city council consults over a wide area and will only do so following clear support for such a consultation to take place.
Residents are offered the chance to express a preference on the times of enforcement and to propose different types of parking controls.
The consultation is a two-stage process so residents that will be living in roads where it is proposed to implement a scheme have a further opportunity to comment once the detailed designs have been done and Traffic Regulation Orders published”.
21.6 RESOLVED- That the petition be noted.
(iii) Lollipop Crossing for West Blatchington Primary School- Councillors Barnett, Janio and Lewry

21.8 The Chair provided the following response:
“Thank you for submitting this petition on behalf of your residents.
I am pleased to confirm that this request has been included in the programme of crossing assessments and that surveys have been undertaken to determine levels of activity. Once the data has been analysed, a decision on whether a School Crossing Patrol can be provided will be made. I have asked the Road Safety Manager to write and inform you of the outcome once it is known”
21.9 RESOLVED- That the petition be noted.
