Report of the Director of the Built Environment
The Sub-Committee considered a report of the Director of the Built Environment seeking endorsement for an interim scheme for Beech Street to be progressed to the next Gateway and informing Members of work and findings on the Beech Street project to date. The Director of the Built Environment introduced the report and drew Members’ attention to the key points, also advising of a revision to the recommendations to make explicit that access to the Barbican Car Parks and Resident Car Parks will be retained for non-compliant vehicles in the interim scheme as part of Option 2.
RESOLVED – That the Streets & Walkways Sub-Committee:
1. Approve Option 2 for Two-way Zero Emission Street as an interim scheme on Beech Street (Access to the Barbican Car Parks and Resident Car Parks will be retained for non-compliant vehicles in the interim scheme as part of Option 2);
2. Note that if an interim scheme is approved, officers will proceed with further developing options and outline designs in a Gateway 4/5 report to be bought back to Committees in October 2019, with work also continuing on investigating all closure options for the longer-term scheme;
3. Note work and findings to date.
