The Committee considered and agreed a proposed procedure for the meeting, which the Chairman explained ahead of the following item.
ACC
5/19
The Committee were presented with a report to seek Member's views following the advertising of a proposal, to introduce on an unresolved objection received following the statutory advertising of a proposal to implement a traffic calming scheme on Beckfields Avenue, Ingleby Barwick. The proposal consisted of a full width 6m plateau flat top road hump at the Puffin crossing facility on Beckfields Avenue and 4 sets of speed cushions at the northern bend and 2 sets of speed cushions at the southern bend.

An Officer from Economic Growth and Development Services presented the main report to members. The officers report also contained the representation received from a member of the public in response to the statutory consultation process in full and summarised them within the main report.

The Objector who had made representation during the statutory consultation was in attendance at the meeting and was given the opportunity to present his concerns to the Committee.

Councillor Sally Ann Watson attended the committee and made representations in her capacity as a Town Councillor for Ingleby Barwick.

A written representation from Councillor Ted Strike, who was unable to attend the meeting, was also taken into consideration.

Members of the committee debated the arguments for and against the proposed scheme carefully. They were mindful that this was a community led scheme and that traffic did speed along Beckfields Avenue. Whilst the Objector presented many arguments against speed humps in general the objector did not present any reason why he objected as a resident to the particular humps proposed that may outweigh the benefits of them.

Members therefore unanimously recommended that the proposed traffic calming scheme be supported.

The decision of the committee was a recommendation only, the final decision being delegated to the Director of Economic Growth and Development Services.
