Report of the Town Clerk.
The Committee received a report of the Town Clerk setting out the current list
of outstanding actions. Updates were provided as follows:
Electric Vehicle Charging
The installation of the charging point in Noble Street has now been implemented. It was suggested that this item can now be removed from the list. Additionally, a paper setting out the future Electric Vehicle Charging strategy will be presented to the Committee in September 2019.
A Member asked how long it took to charge a vehicle. Officers informed the Committee that there are two options. The first being the Fast Charger which is around 7kW. Fast Chargers are generally used overnight. The second option is the Rapid Charger which is around 47kW. Rapid Chargers can take up to a few hours to fully charge a car.
The City of London has a Rapid Charging Point in Noble Street and is seeking to install up to 10 Rapid Charging Points in Baynard House. The technology around Electric Cars is changing fast. The City of London is monitoring advances to the technology and is keen to be at the forefront of developments.
Water Refill Points
The Bow Churchyard drinking water refill point had been temporarily turned off due to technical issues. [Sentence deleted] Cardboard covers have been placed over several of the refill points to highlight their function.
Garden Waste Recycling
The Assistant Director (Cleansing) advised that his team are working with all interested parties to begin a garden waste trial in the spring of 2020. Members will be updated on progress regularly.
Measurement and mitigation options for operational rail noise from London Underground affecting the Barbican Estate
A detailed discussion on this will take place on item 9.
