PETITIONS

    To receive any petitions in accordance with Standing Order 68. Notice should be given in writing or by email to the Community Partnership and Committee Officer at least 14 days before the meeting. Alternatively, the petition can be submitted on-line through Surrey County Council’s e-petitions website as long as the minimum number of signatures (30) has been reached 14 days before the meeting.

     

    Notice of petition received:

     

    ·         Request that the Committee supports the introduction of:

     

    1.   A pedestrian crossing in Station Road, Bramley

    2.   A 20mph speed limit from The Street in Wonersh and along Station Road to its junction with the A281 in Bramley.

     

     

    Minutes:

    Mr D Starr presented a petition on behalf of residents in Bramley and surrounding areas requesting the Local Committee to support the introduction of:

     

    ·         A pedestrian crossing on Station Road

    ·         A 20mph speed limit from The Street in Wonersh, along Station Road to its junction with the A281 in Bramley

     

    Residents believe that the proposed measures would benefit the whole community, including St Catherine’s School, children using school buses which stop in Station Road, users of bus routes 53 and 63 and other road users.  In his presentation Mr Starr referred to a number of recent road accidents and drew attention to residents’ concerns about the increasingly heavy use of the road and inappropriate vehicle speeds in circumstances where there are felt to be a number of hazards, e.g. poor visibility and sight lines, low pavements and obstructions caused by the location of bus-stops.  Residents would prefer two pedestrian crossings: one close to the Downslink and one near to St Catherine’s School.

     

    The Chairman thanked residents for their petition and confirmed that the Committee would consider a report on the matter at its next meeting.

63/13

FORMAL PUBLIC QUESTIONS pdf icon PDF 63 KB

    To answer any questions from residents or businesses within the Waverley Borough area in accordance with Standing Order 69. Notice should be given in writing or by email to the Community Partnership and Committee Officer by 12 noon four working days before the meeting.

     

    Minutes:

    The text of ten public questions received and the responses provided are attached at Annex 1.  The Chairman announced that she would consider questions 8-10 which related to Item 8 (Annual review of on-street parking in Waverley) during discussion of that item.

     

    Supplementary questions relating to questions 1-7 were received as follows.

     

    1.         Mrs Sandars asked whether consultation on further secondary school places in Farnham would extend to members of the public.  The Chairman replied that this would take place, but to a limited extent.  Projections of need are currently being carried out and nothing is excluded at this stage.

     

    2.         Mr Price felt the response provided in relation to the junction of Frith Hill Road with Deanery Road, Godalming was inadequate, as was a recent Freedom of Information (FOI) request on Highways’ handling of the matter.  The Area Highways Manager understood that further information would be provided to fulfil the FOI request.  Mr S Cosser, as local County Councillor, requested that officers ensure that information on Highways’ reasons for their position on this matter be provided to residents.

     

    3.         Mr P Hunter (on behalf of Thursley Parish Council) referred to the County Council’s responsibility to ensure that emergency services are able to reach those in need promptly and pointed out that recent closures of the A3 would have caused substantial delays.  The Chairman replied that the Council is taking the impact of closures on Thursley and other areas very seriously.

     

    5.         Mr D Wylde sought an assurance that the needs of disabled people would be given consideration in assessing the feasibility of relocating day centre provision in Farnham.  The Chairman confirmed that she had made this assurance.

MEMBER QUESTIONS

65/13

POLICE AND CRIME COMMISSIONER FOR SURREY

    To provide a verbal update on the Commissioner’s first year in office and to respond to public questions.

    Minutes:

    The Chairman introduced Mr Kevin Hurley, Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Surrey.  Mr Hurley summarised the responsibilities of the PCC:

     

    ·         Establish the priorities of the public

    ·         Establish a budget for the force

    ·         Hold the Chief Constable to account

    ·         Broaden partnership working

     

    The priorities on which Mr Hurley was elected are:

     

    ·         Take a zero-tolerance approach to policing in Surrey

    ·         Deliver more visible street policing

    ·         Put victims at the centre of the criminal justice system

    ·         Give you more opportunities to have your say about policing

    ·         Protect local policing, standing up for officers and promoting the highest standards of service

     

    The principal challenge facing the PCC is financial and he is faced with the need to make savings, noting that salaries account for the largest element in the Police budget.  In his first year in office, the PCC has worked with Sussex Police to maximise joint back-office and operational support functions and with partners in Surrey to explore savings on emergency services through more collaboration.  Progress has been made in developing a regional capacity to address criminal activity which is best addressed at that level.  He is making representations to central government for increased funding for Surrey Police and has cancelled a major computer development project; the sale of Police Stations has been resumed following a review.  Mr Hurley feels that he and his deputies are visible to the public and will be holding a Crime Summit in Waverley on 11 March 2014 at Farnham Maltings.

     

    Mr Hurley reassured the Committee that he has a clear understanding between his role and that of the Chief Constable in terms of operational matters and that he holds her to account on a monthly basis for progress against his priorities.  He is equally alert to the need for care in measuring policing outcomes and, alone amongst PCCs nationally, he has not given the force performance targets.  In response to a question about specific activity to focus on crime and antisocial behaviour in rural areas, Mr Hurley referred to the comprehensive nature of his “zero tolerance” commitment and explained that the Chief Constable constantly keeps the balance of her resources under review, including that between rural and urban policing.  The Chairman added that the Police and Crime Panel, which scrutinizes the PCC at the county level, has established a task group to examine rural crime.

     

     Mr Hurley responded to a question on amalgamation of forces, by reflecting his view that the public’s interest is principally in visible, front-line policing and that support and managerial functions can be shared amongst forces; his own opinion is that there should be fewer forces nationally.

     

    The PCC confirmed his commitment to neighbourhood policing and, although the number of Police and Community Support Officers would decrease overall, the local presence would not reduce.

     

    Finally, Mr Hurley responded to a member of the public who had raised a question about the Police’s capacity to respond to human trafficking (especially involving children): the scale of this problem in Surrey is unknown, but  ...  view the full minutes text for item 65/13

    Minutes:

    Consideration of proposals for Farnham Central was completed before Item 7. 

     

    The following locations were discussed (plan reference in brackets):

     

    Farnham Central

     

    Guildford Road (24015, 24016) It was noted that consideration would need to be given to mitigating possible displacement.

     

    Station Hill (24025) The location is noted for poor air quality and the proposals have been designed to alleviate congestion in the vicinity of the level crossing and to improve movement.

               

    Weydon Lane (24032) It was recognised that there are opposing views in the community on these proposals which are best assessed through statutory consultation.

     

    Farnham North

     

    Upper Hale Road area (24127) It was hoped that, subject to satisfactory enforcement, concerns about parking adjacent to the school and children’s centre would be addressed through the proposals.  Officers agreed to review the possibility of advertising additional restrictions on the corners at the junction of Spring Lane with Folly Lane North.

     

    Farnham South

     

    Lancaster Avenue/Little Austins Road/Mavins Road area (24121, 24130) The complexity of this area and the pressures of commuter parking were noted, along with a recognition that there are concerns about consequential displacement into adjacent roads.  It was felt that Lancaster Avenue needs to be included in an area solution and Mr D Munro, as local County Councillor, requested that the proposals return to the Local Committee for decision after statutory consultation.

     

    Frensham Road j/w Gold Hill (Private) (24039) Local members expressed some concerns about the impact of the proposed measures on the viability of the local shops.

     

    Godalming North

     

    Town End Street, Latimer Road, Carlos Street, Croft Road, Upper Queen Street and South Street (24075, 24076) Mr S Cosser, as local County Councillor, reported that residents and businesses had been given the opportunity to develop their own proposals and their representatives, invited to address the Committee, were satisfied with the extent to which these had been reflected in the published plans.  Mr P Martin, however, expressed serious concerns that users other than residents, e.g. town centre workers, would be excluded and that displacement elsewhere would lead to the extension of restrictions into adjacent roads in subsequent reviews.  He felt that a piecemeal approach was inappropriate and requested that his vote against the proposals be recorded.

     

    Mint Street and Station Road (24077) It was suggested that careful implementation would be necessary in view of the proposed changes to established parking arrangements.

     

    Catteshall Lane j/w Langham Close (no plan) Officers undertook to advertise restrictions at this location.

     

    Godalming South, Milford and Witley

     

    Portsmouth Road, Milford (24067) While members wished to improve sight lines at this location it was noted that some opposition would be revealed in the consultation process.  It was pointed out that current discussions about traffic mitigation measures for the Upper Tuesley development may have some impact on the parking proposals and officers were asked to make contact with Waverley Borough Council Planning colleagues to explore the implications and any funding which might be released by the development.

    To note the progress made and agree an additional scheme.

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    Resolved to:

     

    (i)     Note progress.

    (ii)  Agree to extend the 30mph speed limit on the A281 Horsham Road at Bramley by approximately 130 metres to the north of the village.

    Bramley Parish Council had requested extending the 30mph limit through the village both north and south along the A281 (see the report presented to the 20 September  2013 meeting of the Committee at Item 12). Highways officers and the Police have agreed it would be appropriate to extend the limit to the north only, but by a considerably lesser distance than originally requested by the Parish Council. 

     

    Minutes:

    The proposal relating to the A281 in Bramley was welcomed.  Mr M Byham will discuss the precise location of the northern terminal signage with officers.

HIGHWAYS BUDGETS FOR 2014-15 pdf icon PDF 76 KB

    To agree arrangements for the allocation of budgets in 2014-15.

    Decision:

    Resolved to:

     

    (i)            Agree that the improvement (ITS) schemes described in this report form the Waverley LTP programme for 2014/15, with Maintenance Capital and Revenue funding reserved to implement the programme, also that the implementation of a 40mph speed limit on the A287 between Gong Hill Drive and Fifield Lane, Frensham (as agreed at Item 10) be added to the programme, £8000 of the costs to be found from the Waverley Western Villages drainage budget and the residue from the unallocated sum.

    (ii)           Agree allocations to the Lengthsman scheme and other revenue and capital headings as described at 1.3 of this report. 

    (iii)          Authorise the Area Highway Manager (AHM) to progress the schemes included in the programme in consultation with local elected members and associated task groups.

    (iv)         Subject to approval of recommendations (i) and (ii) authorise the AHM to consider and determine any objections submitted following the statutory advertisement of the traffic orders and notices associated with the programme of schemes, in consultation with the Chairman and/or Vice-Chairman of the Local Committee and relevant local councillors.

    (v)       Delegate authority to the AHM in consultation with the Chairman and Vice- Chairman and locally affected Members to amend budgets throughout the year if required to ensure the budget is allocated in a timely manner.

    (vi)       Agree that Community Enhancement Fund is devolved to each County Councillor based on an equal allocation of £5,000 per division

     

    Reason

     

    The committee was asked to agree 2014/15 allocations at this stage so that scheme design can start at the earliest opportunity, increasing confidence in delivery.

     

    Minutes:

    The Committee debated the proposed funding arrangements for the Lengthsman scheme.  While recognising the success of the scheme in some parishes, a number of members were concerned about a lack of equity across the borough, in that residents in areas whose town/parish councils had opted not to apply to participate, were disadvantaged.  These members would prefer an alternative arrangement in which the budget is made available on a divisional basis for members to allocate for additional work as appropriate.  There was an opposing view, however, that rural parishes benefited from the existing form of the scheme and that the process need not be onerous.  It was noted that the matter would return to the next meeting for a formal decision on allocations for 2014-15 and the Chairman undertook to consider the comments made.

     

    Following the decision made in Item 10, Mr D Harmer proposed an amendment to recommendation (i) to enable the proposed 40mph limit on the A287 between Gong Hill Drive and Fifield Lane, Frensham to be added to the programme, funding to be allocated as follows; £8000 of the costs to be found from the Waverley Western Villages drainage budget and the residue from the unallocated sum.  The amendment was seconded by the Chairman and agreed by the Committee.

     

    Mr S Cosser requested that his opposition to resolution (ii) be recorded.

     

    Resolved to:

     

    (i)            Agree that the improvement (ITS) schemes described in this report form the Waverley LTP programme for 2014/15, with Maintenance Capital and Revenue funding reserved to implement the programme, also that the implementation of a 40mph speed limit on the A287 between Gong Hill Drive and Fifield Lane, Frensham (as agreed at Item 10) be added to the programme, £8000 of the costs to be found from the Waverley Western Villages drainage budget and the residue from the unallocated sum.

     

    (ii)           Agree allocations to the Lengthsman scheme and other revenue and capital headings as described at 1.3 of this report. 

     

    (iii)          Authorise the Area Highway Manager (AHM) to progress the schemes included in the programme in consultation with local elected members and associated task groups.

     

    (iv)         Subject to approval of recommendations (i) and (ii) authorise the AHM to consider and determine any objections submitted following the statutory advertisement of the traffic orders and notices associated with the programme of schemes, in consultation with the Chairman and/or Vice-Chairman of the Local Committee and relevant local councillors.

     

    (v)       Delegate authority to the AHM in consultation with the Chairman and Vice- Chairman and locally affected Members to amend budgets throughout the year if required to ensure the budget is allocated in a timely manner.

RESULT OF CONSULTATION ON SURREY CYCLING STRATEGY pdf icon PDF 116 KB

    To consider the outcome of the recent consultation (report to follow).

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    Resolved to note the consultation response and proposed Cycling Strategy.

     

    Reason

     

    The Surrey Cycling Strategy has been developed following extensive consultation.  The Surrey County Council Cabinet will consider the strategy on 17 December 2013.  

     

     

    Minutes:

    The intention to disaggregate the responses to borough level was welcomed.  Members shared a concern that the proposal that local committees should oversee the development of local cycling plans may create public expectations that could not be met.  There was interest in having oversight of events and an input into proposals for cycle routes, but also a recognition that resources for cycling would need to be balanced by the other highways priorities assessed by the Committee.  It was noted that a programme of developed schemes may put the council in a stronger position in applications for government funding.  It was agreed that local task groups should consider cycling proposals.  Members were reminded that there is an active Cycle Forum in Waverley.

     

    Resolved to note the consultation response and proposed Cycling Strategy.

     

    Reason

     

    The Surrey Cycling Strategy has been developed following extensive consultation.  The Surrey County Council Cabinet will consider the strategy on 17 December 2013.

IMPLEMENTATION OF SOUTH EAST PERMIT SCHEME FOR WORK ON THE HIGHWAY pdf icon PDF 40 KB

    This report provides an overview of the South East Permit Scheme (SEPS) and the implications to both works promoters and the highway authority and provides information gained within the first month of operation.

     

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    Resolved to note the contents of the report.

     

    Reason

     

    The report was for information only. 

     

    Minutes:

    The Committee noted updated data from the scheme which covered the additional period since preparation of the report: this was proportional in scale to that published.  It was reported that approximately 50% of Fixed Penalty Notices issued to contractors in the first month of operation were issued for not displaying the required information on site.  It is possible that the number of notices issued at this stage may reflect initial unfamiliarity with the scheme’s requirements.

     

    Officers undertook to review the accuracy of the periodic list of highway works issued to County Councillors and to consider the wider context of applications received, e.g. the potential impact on businesses at particular times.

     

    The Chairman thanked the officers involved with implementing the scheme.

     

    Resolved to note the contents of the report.

     

    Reason

     

    The report was for information only.
