    Minutes:

    1.    The Chairman introduced the item which related to an issue referred up from the 5 September Finchley and Golders Green Residents Forum regarding speeding on Castle Road, North Finchley N12.

     

    A Member suggested that painted ‘speed bumps’ could be introduced (mimicking speed bumps) as they had been effective in other roads.

     

    Following a discussion it was agreed that a speed survey should be carried out to investigate the extent of the problem, prior to making a decision on the interventions needed.

     

    The Committee unanimously RESOLVED:

     

    To allocate of £2000 to undertake a speed survey on Castle Road, N12.

     

    2.    The Chairman introduced the item which related to an issue referred up from the 5 September Finchley and Golders Green Residents Forum regarding resident parking concerns, Eversleigh Road, Finchley Central, N3.

     

    A Member noted that the overspill from Finchley Central including business parking caused a problem with parking for residents of Eversleigh Road, The Grove and other roads in the area and he felt that a CPZ was needed.

     

    The Senior Engineer, LB Barnet noted that an extension of the CPZ to Eversleigh Road could be considered in relation to the Church End CPZ Review. She recommended awaiting Transport for London’s review in light of its major development in Finchley Central so that traffic flow in the area could be considered as a whole, including the possibility of extending the CPZ into Eversleigh Road.

     

    A Member noted that funding was likely to be available relatively soon under Section 106 to investigate traffic flow further to the Finchley Central development.

     

    A motion was moved to defer the item and was duly seconded. The Committee therefore unanimously agreed:

     

    To DEFER the item on parking concerns in Eversleigh Road and neighbouring roads, to await the outcome of a Transport for London Review of traffic flow under a Section 106 Agr
