Report of the Executive Director, Environment.
The Committee received a report of the Executive Director Environment providing an update on the Transport Strategy Delivery Plan for Quarter 1 2022/23.
A Member noted that the report referenced public realm improvements at Creed Court and a six week delay to these. However, the Member clarified that this was not strictly true as the project had taken six week’s longer during the construction phase which had caused many of the shops located here to lose out in terms of passing trade. The Member reported that he had requested signage here to indicate that pedestrians could still pass through and was pleased to note that this had been quickly provided but he still expressed his frustration as to how the delay had been presented here. He questioned whether the business rates for these premises might be adjusted downwards to account for this period of time.
RESOLVED: That Members note the report.
