A Member reported that, at present, Officers were evaluating permeable footway material in terms of climate change resilience. He went on to seek support from the Committee to ask that Officers also include in their study of new materials for public realm low impact exercise surfaces such as resin using recycled rubber crumbs given that this kind of material could also be made permeable. Further to this, if the installation, maintenance costs and robustness of such material was found to be satisfactory and sufficient to be added to the public realm together with their other public footway materials, the Member stated that he would also like to ask Officers to bring a report to this Committee on the use of public land for free exercise facilities.


The Chair asked that Officers consider this proposal and report back to the Member.
