Report of the Director of the Built Environment
The Sub-Committee received a report of the Director of the Built Environment providing the Sub-Committee with a review of the first year of ‘Lunchtime Streets’ events.
Members felt that the events had been a clear success, with a high level of public approval and positive feedback, and therefore ambition should be to expand on the first year with an extended programme of more events in 2020. Proposals were welcome from Members, who should consider potential locations within their wards.
The Director of the Built Environment confirmed that officers continued to engage and work with stakeholder groups, and were considering a programme of six events for 2020, with possibilities including events around Cheapside or Liverpool Street. Members were supportive and encouraging, and requested that a report be brought back to Committee with further details on plans and proposals for ‘Lunchtime Streets’ events in the next year.
RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
