Extension of Parking Concessions for Key Workers – request for Delegated Authority
Officers reminded the Committee that, since lockdown in March, the Corporation had been giving parking concessions to essential frontline workers such as those working within the NHS. This measure was now due for review and, with the continuing pandemic, there were proposals to extend these concessions until 31 August when they could be reviewed further. Members were informed that this approach was in line with Government advice and the Committee’s permission for the Town Clerk to approve these proposals under delegated authority in consultation with the Chair and Deputy Chair of this Committee was sought.
RESOLVED – That Delegated Authority be granted to the Town Clerk, in consultation with the Chair and Deputy Chairman of the Planning and Transportation Committee, with regard to the extension of parking concessions for key workers until 31 August 2020.
