- View the background to item 31.
Report of the Executive Director for Economy, Environment & Culture (copy attached).
1) That, having taken account of all duly made objections and representations to the Experimental Traffic Order, the Committee approves action being taken to make this order permanent.
31.1 The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture that set out objections received in relation to the East Street Experimental Traffic Regulation Order which allows for the closing of a portion of East Street to traffic between11am and 7pm on Saturdays and Sundays and the removal of driving prohibitions in Little East Street to allow motor vehicles to exit the area during these times.
31.2 Councillor Deane welcomed the report noting her disappointment that that the closure to traffic would only be at weekends rather than seven days a week as originally proposed and that traders, residents and visitors were unable to benefit sooner.
31.3 RESOLVED- That, having taken account of all duly made objections and representations to the Experimental Traffic Order, the Committee approves action being taken to make this order permanent.
