That a briefing note be prepared for the Committee outlining the consultation process. 



Members were asked to consider the 2014/15 Year End Improvement Plan Monitoring Report relevant to the Environment Overview and Scrutiny

Committee.  Members were advised that the following Improvement Plan sub-priority reports were appended to the report:


·         Traffic and Road Management

·         Transport Infrastructure and Services

·         Carbon Control and Reduction


Councillor Paul Shotton asked what benefits were being achieved as a result of the ‘meet and greet’ system which had been implemented at recycling centres. The Chief Officer (Streetscene and Transportation) advised that performance had been disappointing at some sites.  The Cabinet Member for Waste, Leisure and Public Protection explained that the introduction of a chargehand on each of the sites was not yet in place but he anticipated

an improvement in performance in the future as a result.  He also advised that Cabinet had asked for the situation to be closely monitored.


Councillor Nancy Matthews referred to page 75 of the report and referred to public feedback on implementation of physical Traffic Calming measures on the High Street, Bagillt. She commented that public feedback in the press had not been positive to the measures but that this had not been recorded in the report.   The Chief Officer (Streetscene and Transportation) explained that comments had been made in the press indicating that the Authority was not following process, and he gave an assurance that due process had been diligently applied.



The Chair advised that correspondence had been received from Mark Isherwood AM regarding the Bagillt speed bumps issue and she had suggested that a report be requested on the consultation process undertaken prior to the introduction of traffic calming measures and Traffic Regulation Orders so that members of the Committee could consider the robustness of the processes currently used across Flintshire.


The Chair asked the Committee to decide whether it wished to add the item to the Forward Work Programme for future consideration or not.  During discussion it was agreed that a briefing paper be requested from the Chief Officer  (Streetscene and Transportation) outlining the consultation process undertaken.
