Attendance: Councillor Brand joined the meeting at 9.10a.m.

Mr Bruce answered questions about:

·        the number of trials planned for the Nayland Road/Broadgreen House Mobility Parking

·         the total length of the bus stop at Trafalgar Street

·         existing short term parking near 235 Nayland Road, the assessment process to weigh up residential needs versus business needs, and the ability to change the bylaw should needs change

·         the other corners of the Echodale/Fayette Lane intersection

·         the history of the existing Halifax Street – Bowater Toyota Vehicle Crossing, considerations given to stormwater, and the proximity to the central island on Halifax Street and its potential impact on ability of movement.

Discussion took place regarding hazards and safety in relation to right-turn movements from the Halifax Street – Bowater Toyota Vehicle Crossing. Mr Bruce explained that because the existing crossing remained with no alteration or modification to the kerb, no application was required for the crossing itself.

The Panel noted concerns about potential hazards posed by right turns and U-turns, and that signage to encourage left-turns could improve safety.

The meeting was adjourned from 9.39a.m. until 9.44a.m.

The Panel acknowledged that there was no legal requirement for left-turn only signage to be installed but that it would appreciate if Bowater Toyota would consider such signage to increase safety. A third clause was added to the motion to reflect this.

The Panel requested officers to monitor the exiting of vehicles from Bowater Toyota for safety purposes, noting that reporting to the Panel was not required.
