URGENT BUSINESS - CAR PARKING OBJECTION pdf icon PDF 71 KB

The Chief Executive consulted with the Leader and Cabinet Member with

Responsibility for Parking to take the Urgent Business Decision set out below. The reason for the

urgency in this case was that a decision was required to allow for any changes to be in place

for 1 April 2014. The Chairman of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee was

consulted and agreed to waive the five day call-in period in accordance with Overview

and Scrutiny Procedure Rule 17(a):-

 

(1) In considering this issue Cabinet is conscious that the Council already

supports the city centre through providing a clean and improving

environment.

(2) That Cabinet, having today received a programme of events from the

Business Improvement District (BID), which was not available when the

previous decision was made, has decided that free parking should be

retained on public holidays to support the development of these events.

(3) That Cabinet agree that for the purposes of the parking order this change

does not represent a substantial change. Therefore, officers are requested

to continue the process of implementing the overall decision previously made

by Cabinet.

(4) Cabinet extends an invitation to the Chamber and BID to discuss matters of

mutual concern.
