Report of the Director of Markets and Consumer Protection.

RESOLVED, that Members
· Approve that the Moor Lane ULEV pilot project be closed and superseded by the Beech Street Transport and Public Realm Improvement project.
· Note the expenditure of £58,986.04 - £19,000 spent on the feasibility study, which will inform Beech Street; £490.04 on materials for the consultation, which is abortive.
