This paper is to brief the Local Committee Members on the Epsom Banstead Sustainable Transport Package (STP). The scheme is currently being developed into a business case for submission to the Coast to Capital (C2C) Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) in a bid for funding from the Local Growth Award. Bid submission date is expected at the end of September 2016, although a firm date is still to be confirmed by the LEP.


The scheme was the subject of a recent public consultation for seven weeks between 27 June 2016 and 14 August 2016.

Officers attending: Neil McClure, Transport Strategy Project Manager


Petitions, Public Questions/Statements: None


Member Discussion – key points


Member queried whether Epsom & Ewell Borough Council are contributing anything to the project.  It was confirmed that the Borough are not making a contribution as the available funding is being directed to other projects such as the Plan E scheme. 


Members asked whether anything can be done to prevent people parking on the Reigate Road cycle way as posts are currently in place to stop parking on the verge.  Officers replied that it is an offense to park on an off carriageway cycle route which this will be, but there are also engineering measures which can be considered such as double height kerbs to stop vehicles accessing the area.


The Committee noted the progress to date and the results of the high level analysis of the public engagement on the proposed schemes.
