Consideration was given to the minutes of the meeting held on 23rd November 2016 and 12th December 2016.

The committee received a report that updated Members on the current position on the Borough Boundary Signs Review. Approval was being sought for a scheme to mark the North Yorkshire / County Durham ceremonial boundary following a scrutiny review undertaken by Place Select Committee at four locations crossing the River Tees.

Appropriate legislation was now in place to introduce these signs following the introduction of the 2016 Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions and it was agreed to consult with the Committee prior to the signs being installed.

The proposed sign designs were provided and it was explained that although various colours could be used that avoiding white made the sign look less like a highway sign and brown was in keeping with tourism signs.

Members made comment on the colour of the sign stating brown would not have been their chosen colour but understood why it had been chosen.

The Committee noted its work programme.

Members should have received the recycling pilot receptacles to trial with residents in their ward. It was requested if all feedback could be sent to the scrutiny team to be collated and forwarded to officers. It was also explained that residents could keep the new receptacles for future use if they wished.
