Permit Review

Report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture

Decision:

1)             That the Committee agrees to amend the following permits as outlined in Appendix A.

 

     School Permit Eligibility and Permit Allocation

     Trial Business Visitor Permits in Zone S and V

     Hotel Permit Parking

Minutes:

68.1      The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture that proposed recommendations for changes to the operation of various parking permits throughout the city.

 

68.2      Councillor Appich moved a motion on behalf of the Labour Group to amend the recommendations as shown in bold italics below:

 

2.1      That the Committee agrees to amend the following permits as outlined in Appendix A

· School Permit Eligibility and Permit Allocation*

· Trial Business Visitor Permits in Zone S and V

· Hotel Permit Parking

 

2.2      That the Committee agree that the proposal for a checklist and survey for School Permits as detailed at Appendix A of the report be removed.

 

68.3      Introducing the motion, Councillor Appich stated its purpose was to avoid adding further administrative and bureaucratic processes on to schools particularly at a time when there was significant and sometimes urgent adjustments arising from the pandemic.

 

68.4      Councillor Williams formally seconded the motion.

 

68.5      The Chair observed that whilst she fully supported all school staff, the Green Group would not be supporting the motion as it went against the council’s commitments on Carbon Neutrality and the requirement was for only 10% of staff to complete a survey on their active travel habits and how they could be enhanced.

 

68.6      Councillor Wares stated that he supported the changes on School Permit Eligibility and Permit Allocation and Trial Business Visitor Permits in Zone S and V but did not support the changes proposed to Hotel Permit parking so would reluctantly be voting against the report recommendations.

 

68.7      The Chair put the motion to the vote that failed.

 

68.8      The Chair then put the recommendations to the vote that passed.

 

68.9      RESOLVED-

 

1)             That the Committee agrees to amend the following permits as outlined in Appendix A.

 

     School Permit Eligibility and Permit Allocation

     Trial Business Visitor Permits in Zone S and V

     Hotel Permit Parking
