Members received monitoring updates for the previous reviews of Pavement Parking and Highway Network Management.

Members discussed the monitoring update for pavement parking and agreed the level of progress reported. Members amended the recommendations 7, 8, and 11 as not complete until after September when they were due to be completed. Evidence was also sought regarding the publication of the Annual Parking Report

The Committee then discussed the monitoring update for Highway Network Management. Officers were requested to check if the Highway Safety Inspection Manual was in the Members Library as stated as none of the Committee had found it there.

The Committee received a report on winter maintenance in response to previous to Members comments and suggestions. Officers informed Members that they had investigated the proposal to retain the original 316 salt bins with 157 priority 1 salt bins filled twice weekly between December and February. The remaining 159 bins would become priority 2 bins which would be fully stocked with salt at the beginning of the winter period and re-filled when all priority 1 bins had been re-filled or when practicable with a sand mix or other suitable alternative to rock salt to help maintain supplies. It was also suggested that of the 316 salt bins 237 bins could remain in situ permanently. Members agreed with the proposal and for the report be forwarded to Cabinet for consideration.

The Committee received the Event Delivery Framework and draft survey questions for the EIT review. Officers suggested focus groups to take place in September rather than using a postal survey. Members agreed with this suggestion and requested that within question 1 to ask the reason for any non attendance of events.

It was noted that some events needed more consideration as people who were not immobile but could not stand or walk for long periods may not have been fully considered when organising some of the events.
