Report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture

Decision:

1)            That the Committee agrees to advertise an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order to close the southern end of Temple Street to stop rat running in the street.

 

2)            That the committee agrees to monitor the effect of the Experimental Traffic Regulation Order on Temple Street and surrounding streets and bring a report to this committee at the end of the trial period with the results of the trial and recommendations for a permanent solution.

Minutes:

61.1      The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture that detailed the implications for the closure of Temple Street and proposed reversing the traffic flow to reduce the impact of rat running.

 

61.2      On behalf of the Green Group, Councillor Lloyd moved the following motion to amend recommendation 2.1 and add a recommendation 2.2 as show in bold italics below:

 

2.1   That the Committee agrees to advertise an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order to close the southern end of Temple Street to stop rat running in the street.

 

2.2  That the committee agrees to monitor the effect of the Experimental Traffic Regulation Order on Temple Street and surrounding streets and bring a report to this committee at the end of the trial period with the results of the trial and recommendations for a permanent solution.

 

61.3      Introducing the motion, Councillor Lloyd stated that the residents of Temple Street were in support of the closure to stop rat running completely. Councillor Lloyd stated that low-cost option for closure such as street planters could be effective.

 

61.4      Councillor West formally seconded the motion explaining that the proposals were supported by both ward councillors and residents.
