97.1

Rachel Bishop-Firth asked the Executive Member for Highways and Transport the following question:

 

Question

The residents on Outfield Crescent are complaining that commuters parking at the entrances at either end of the Crescent are creating a hazard for other road users and pedestrians, particularly children, and could potentially block emergency vehicles.  This hazard could be eliminated if the double yellow lines were extended further down the road.  What steps do residents need to take to get this to happen?

 

97.2

Christopher Neale asked the Executive Member for Planning and Enforcement the following question:

 

Question

The Council has stated that it seeks to protect the integrity of the Green Belt. However, it is clear from the Judgment of HHJ Angela Morris, that has been upheld by the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division), that the Council has not acted with integrity towards Mr Scott and others. The Council has been adjudged to have acted in a way that was, "unjust and unfair and so offends the court's sense of justice that it must stay the proceedings...to protect the integrity of the criminal justice system (para.93)". It is hard to think of a more serious finding that the Court could have found. Why then, and as reported in the local press, has the Council dismissed out of hand the matter of an internal investigation into the conduct of the relevant Councillors and Officers whose actions gave rise to these findings? I therefore formally request that the Council must reconsider its position - if it is not prepared to do so then please justify fully why it is so dismissive of these findings, as Council Tax payers and people having dealings with the Council, particularly in respect of planning issues, need to be confident that they will be treated in a fair and just way in accordance with the rules of natural justice.
