Members welcomed the reported and made a number of comments including the need to ensure extra greening didn’t congest the pavements, the possibility of including some ‘short term hits’ should be considered, and the need to take a holistic approach to tackling issues such as consolidation and rough sleepers.
RESOLVED - That
1) Public consultation on the draft Eastern City Cluster Area Enhancement Strategy be undertaken over June and July 2018, and
2) Authority be delegated to the Chief Officer to finalise the details of the relevant consultation material.
