Parking Annual Report 2019-2020

Report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture

Decision:

1)             That the Environment Transport and Sustainability Committee endorses the publication of the Parking Annual Report for 2019-20 under the provisions of the Traffic Management Act 2004.

 

2)             That the Environment Transport and Sustainability Committee authorises the Head of Parking to produce and publish the report, which will be made available on the Council’s website.

 

3)             That the Environment Transport and Sustainability Committee notes the view on the potential use of parking income to invest in the restoration of the Madeira Terraces area within the Financial and Legal implications.

Minutes:

45.1      The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture that sought approval for the publication of the Parking Annual Report 2019-20 on the performance of Parking Services for general publication under the provisions of the Traffic Management Act 2004.

 

45.2      Councillor Wares moved a motion on behalf of the Conservative Group to amend recommendation 2.3 as shown in bold italics below:

 

2.3     That the Environment Transport and Sustainability Committee reminds and requests officers to produce the report for Policy and Resources Committee notes the view on the potential use of parking income to invest in the restoration of the Madeira Terraces area as agreed by Policy and Resources Committee on 9th July 2020. within the Financial and Legal implications.

 

45.3      Councillor Brown formally seconded the motion.

 

45.4      The Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture stated that there was some confusion in relation to the motion as the committee Decision List from 9th July 2020 indicated that the decision taken was to consider unpausing of the purchasing of commercial properties and capital borrowing to support Madeira Terraces restoration. Subsequently, a petition was received by Full Council sought for parking revenue to be used for the restoration. The Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture explained that whilst officers would deliver decisions made, a link to a decision on 9th July could not be found.

 

45.5      Councillor Wares stated that the proposal should not be in the report as it was not the place to agree upon how money should be spent to restore Madeira Terrace. In relation to the report, Councillor Wares noted that the council had once more received a record amount of parking revenue, a record he did not believe the city should be proud of.

 

45.6      The Chair then put the motion to the vote that was lost.

 

45.7      The Chair then put the recommendations to the vote that was agreed.

 

45.8      Whilst no formal recorded vote was undertaken, Councillor Wares and Councillor Brown asked that it be recorded in the minutes that they voted against recommendation 2.3.

 

1)             That the Environment Transport and Sustainability Committee endorses the publication of the Parking Annual Report for 2019-20 under the provisions of the Traffic Management Act 2004.

 

2)             That the Environment Transport and Sustainability Committee authorises the Head of Parking to produce and publish the report, which will be made available on the Council’s website.

 

3)             That the Environment Transport and Sustainability Committee notes the view on the potential use of parking income to invest in the restoration of the Madeira Terraces area within the Financial and Legal implications.
