To receive the report of the Executive Director Environment
The Committee received the report of the Executive Director Environment.
A Member asked what consideration had been given to skateboarding, and the meeting heard that skateboarding had been taken into account in design plans to make the area less appealing to skateboarders.
A Member commented on the appeal of ‘cigarette flowers’,and asked for clarification on the provision of rubbish bins, and the meeting heard that it was likely that a further bin would be added.
A Member asked whether Yorkstone would continue to be used over and above permeable paving, taking into account absorption capabilities and skateboarding appeal. The meeting heard that permeable paving was sub-optimal because of underlying materials, though mixed paving was an option being considered.
A Member asked whether there would be enough seating, bearing in mind the curves. The meeting heard that some existing benches could be used and that there was enough straight edge to accommodate a range of seating options with no loss of seating.
