Any Other Special Interest Area Updates

Minutes:

The SIA lead for Road Safety, reported on a number of operations currently being delivered aimed at making the City’s roads safer for all road-users and pedestrians. A Member asked for specific clarification regarding the resources which were being used to enforce the 20 miles per hour limit, as the statistics provided were insufficient in isolation to allow Members to understand the demands of enforcing the limit.

 

The Committee noted that a Road Safety Campaign ‘Share the Road’ had been launched in August, and was a joint venture with TfL which aimed to combine engagement, education and enforcement aimed at all road users.

 

Several Members of the Committee also raised questioned regarding action taken against unlicensed street traders, particularly the peanut sellers on the bridges, and it was agreed that a note would be circulated regarding numbers dealt with and any enforcement action taken.

 

A Member requested that invitations to the Community Speedwatch Event be circulated to all Members of the Committee.

 

RESOLVED – That the update be noted.

 

(The SIA Lead for Accommodation gave an update during consideration of the relevant report at agenda item 17)
