06/12/2018 - A331 BLACKWATER VALLEY ROUTE AIR QUALITY, SPEED REDUCTION TO 50MPH (Executive Function - For Decision) ref: 3597    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Surrey Heath Local Committee

Made at meeting: 06/12/2018 - Surrey Heath Local Committee

Decision published: 07/12/2018

Effective from: 06/12/2018

Decision:

The Local Committee (Surrey Heath) agreed that:

 

(i)    An advertisement should be published for a Speed Limit Order (SLO) to extend the current 50mph speed limit (and revoke the existing 70mph limit) on the A331 BVR between the M3 junction 4 and A325 Frimley junctions to 100 metres south of the Coleford Bridge Road junction;

 

(ii)   Any objections to the revocation of the existing 70mph speed limit and resultant introduction of a 50mph speed limit should be considered and resolved by the Area Highways Manager (NW) in consultation with the Divisional Member, Chairman and relevant Hampshire County Council officers and Members, and that this issue only be returned to Committee if any objections prove insurmountable;

 

(iii)  Once any objections have been considered and resolved, that the order be made and the 50mph limit introduced with the expectation that the current national speed limit of 70mph will be reinstated once it can be assured that nitrogen dioxide levels will remain compliant with these higher traffic speeds

Reasons for Decision:

 

The Commttee would usually look to the SCC Speed Limit Policy before recommending a change in speed limit.  However, this decision enables the County to react to the Government directive for Air Quality.  A decision to not proceed could mean the County Council is fined.  The Committee therefore agreed the decision to proceed but noted that talks would continue on air quality and enforcement of any speed limit.

Decision Maker: Elmbridge Local Committee

Made at meeting: 26/11/2018 - Elmbridge Local Committee

Decision published: 28/11/2018

Effective from: 06/12/2018

Decision:

The Local Committee (Elmbridge) agreed:

 

(i)    The county council’s intention to introduce the proposals as detailed in Annex 1 is formally advertised, and subject to statutory consultation, including the following amendments:
Drawings 1 and 2 – add two additional bays at the north-east of Bridge Road with a 30 minute limit and extend the bays on Creek Road outside numbers 13/15
Manordene Close, Thames Ditton to advertise double yellow lines on one side of the close
.

       Consider changing the hours of operation of the proposed zig zag restrictions in Thames Street to ensure that they correspond with school start and finish times.  If necessary, amend the existing zig zags to match.

(ii)   The county council’s intention to carry out informal consultations and, subject to satisfactory responses, refine the proposals as detailed in Annex 2 before being formally advertised and subject to statutory consultation;

(iii)  If objections are received the Parking Strategy and Implementation Team Manager is authorised to try and resolve them;

(iv)  If any objections cannot be resolved, the Parking Strategy and Implementation Team Manager, in consultation with the Chairman/Vice Chairman of this committee and the county councillor for the division, decides whether or not they should be acceded to and therefore whether the order should be made, with or without modifications:

 

(v)   To note the locations where we have received requests for new or amended parking controls, and following analysis, have recommended no changes at the current time, as detailed in Annex 3;

 

(vi)  That officers in consultation with members be asked to look at the impact of extending residents parking to Dorchester Road, Gascoigne Road Weybridge and take this forward if appropriate and also to consider a change in the hours for existing resident parking in the area eg Limes Road and Minorca Road to correspond with local car parks.

 

Reasons:  Changes to the highway network, the built environment and society mean that parking behaviour changes and consequently it is necessary for a Highway Authority to carry out regular reviews of waiting and parking restrictions on the highway network.

 

It is recommended that the waiting restrictions in this report are progressed as they will help to:

      Improve road safety

      Increase access for emergency vehicles

      improve access to shops, facilities and businesses

      Increase access for refuse vehicles, buses and service vehicles

      Reduce traffic congestion

     Better regulate parking

27/11/2018 - Revised Financial Regulations ref: 3568    For Determination

To approve revised Financial Regulations and to amend the Council’s constitution accordingly.

 

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Made at meeting: 27/11/2018 - Cabinet

Decision published: 28/11/2018

Effective from: 27/11/2018

Decision:

RESOLVED:

 

That the Financial Regulations be amended before it goes to full Council, to reflect that the Audit and Governance Committee will sign off the Treasury Management Strategy Statement.

 

To RECOMMEND that Council:

 

1.    Approves the new Financial Regulations.

2.    Approves the annual Treasury Management Strategy Statement to the Audit and Governance Committee.  (Members of the Audit and Governance Committee will receive appropriate training.)

3.    Approves the necessary amendments to the Council’s Constitution.

Reasons for Decision:

 

The Council’s Annual Governance Statement for 2017/18 identified that actions were required to strengthen governance, including the need to revise and reinforce the Financial Regulations.  As the Council is facing unprecedented financial pressures, a comprehensive review is required to reflect the new financial environment. 

 

The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy’s (CIPFA) Prudential Code and Treasury Management Code of Practice (2017) requires local authorities to prepare a Capital and Investment Strategy from April 2019.  The introduction of this new strategy means that approval of the annual Treasury Management Strategy Statement may be delegated to a sub-committee.  Delegation of this function to the Audit and Governance Committee should facilitate more active discussion of the strategy by Members who have received specific training in this area.

Reasons for Decision:

 

The existing stop smoking contract will expire on 31 March 2019 and an extension is not possible. A full tender process, in compliance with the requirement of Public Contract Regulations and Procurement Standing Orders, has been completed and the recommendations provide best value for money for the Council following a thorough evaluation process.

 

Helping smokers to quit now reduces the cost of care in the future. The Care Act 2014 requires councils with social care responsibilities to put in place preventive measures designed to reduce the need for care and support in the future. Helping smokers quit now means that they are less likely to require paid for care in the future.
