    i.              The Chairman, Councillor Brian Gordon invited Councillor Sury Khatri who introduced the Member’s item in his name, which related to the proposal for a new pedestrian Crossing in Langstone Way Mill Hill East NW7.

     

    Following consideration of the Member’s item, the Committee RESOLVED:

     

    That the Commissioning Director for Environment instructs officers to undertake a feasibility study on the option to install a pedestrian crossing in Langstone Way, Mill Hill with an allocated CIL budget of up to £5,000 and to bring an update back to the Committee.

     

    ii.            The Chairman, Councillor Brian Gordon introduced his item which related to a white line facility in Broadfields Avenue South.

     

    The Commissioning Director for Environment, Mr Jamie Blake noted that the Environment Committee is due to consider a report on footway parking. Mr Blake informed the Committee that Broadfields Avenue South can be added to a subsequent report on footway parking.

     

    It was therefore RESOLVED:

     

    That the Commissioning Director for Environment be instructed to include Broadfiels Avenue South as part of future footway parking works.

    iii.           The Chairman invited Councillor Adam Langleben who introduced his item relating to Brent Green, Hendon NW4. Mr Blake explained that the second improvement proposal, set out in the report, relating to vertical traffic calming measures would be contrary to Council policy.

    That the Commissioning Director for Environment instructs officers to progress traffic improvements 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 in relation to Brent Green, Hendon as set out in the report and detailed below with an allocated CIL Budget of up to £25,000.

    6. Resurfacing and re-paving of Brent Green. The pavement in particular has not been re-surfaced in some time and shows signs of historic re-surfacing which is an eyesore.
