Report of the Director of the Built Environment.
(To be read in conjunction with the non-public appendix at Item 20).
The Committee received a report of the Director of the Built Environment concerning the current status of the Tudor Street development. Officers advised that the report had previously been considered by the Streets and Walkways Sub-Committee and Members were referred to the minutes which had been circulated.
The Committee noted that the Sub-Committee had declined to accept the recommendation and had agreed the following:
1) The full implementation of the agreed scheme remain a matter of urgency;
2) A report be brought to the Sub-Committee in July reporting on the recent independent consultant’s review of the operation of the Whitefriars streets. Such report to set out proposals for Bouverie street and the latest position in relation to improving access to the Embankment; and
3) A further report be brought back after recess setting out clear timelines in relation to implementing the revised scheme at Tudor Street.
The Deputy Chairman advised that it would still be possible for the Committee to agree the report in principle, however other Members felt that the item should be deferred pending the outcome of the request of the Sub-Committee.
Scheme to include
Officers advised that the recommendations in the report were just to get approval to the scheme in principle, the Sub-Committee had done this but just asked for the Bouverie Street.
Arising from the discussion the Committee
RESOLVED – To note the report and the recommendations of the Streets and Walkways Sub-Committee.
