    Minutes:

    Install CCTV in Mount Parade, EN4

     

    The Committee received a petition from Mr Pavanakumar. Cllr Byers spoke on behalf of Mr Pavanakumar.

     

    RESOLVED that the Committee unanimously approved £2000 CIL funding for the installation of CCTV, subject to officers confirming compliance with CIL legislation.

     

     

    Traffic safety - Hadley, Clifford and Woodford Roads

     

    Paul Clarke introduced the petition on behalf of Dan Hamilton, lead petitioner.

     

    The Highways Officer reported that this matter was already on the LIP funding priority list. A feasability study would feed into this.

     

    RESOLVED that the Committee unanimously approved that a feasibility study be carried out at a cost of £5000.

     

     

    Parking around Barnet Hospital

     

    The lead petitioner was not in attendance.

     

    A question from Linda Lusingu and the Highways officer’s response was noted.

     

    A Member asked when the proposed permits for Barnet Hospital (BH) staff were likely to be in place. The Head of Parking and Infrastructure reported that the matter was in progress and he estimated these would be implemented in around one month’s time.

     

    A Member asked whether BH’s planning application for 70 extra parking spaces were being considered in relation to the staff permits. The Head of Parking noted that this would not affect the staff permits due to be issued by LB Barnet.

     

    Patricia Yorke’s question and comment, and the officer’s responses were noted.

     

    RESOLVED that the Committee unanimously approved £3000 CIL funding for the installation of double yellow lines on Bells Hill prior to the BH CPZ review being undertaken. Other roads to be discussed with ward councillors.

     

    The Chairman invited Cllr Longstaff to speak on his Member’s Item - Field End CPZ. Cllr Longstaff stated that Kerri Close and other roads in the area may wish to be part of the CPZ and requested that they be included in the consultation. Around 650m of space would be taken up by staff permits for Barnet Hospital so parking would be more difficult in the area for residents.

     

    RESOLVED that the Committee unanimously approved that Field End and neighbouring streets be included in the CPZ consultation.
