Agenda item: Minutes of the previous Meeting held on 23 January 2023
Action – “The Committee requested an update on conversations with Registered Social Landlords contributing towards the Community Safety Warden service.”
The Committee advised that the response didn’t clarify whether the RSL’s had been asked to contribute towards the service and whether they had declined or accepted. The Committee asked for an update on whether any conversations had taken place with the RSL’s to seek funding and what the outcome was.
10th July 2023:
Agenda item: 2022/23 Service Plan End of Year Reviews
Action: “Infrastructure - The Committee asked for a plan to address the poor condition of roads and improve the road network, especially as increased traffic and other issues affected them. The Committee confirmed the presentation of the Highways Asset Management Plan to members in February 2024, but Members requested additional data to be sent to the Committee before that.”
The Committee asked whether a cost-benefit analysis was undertaken to determine whether it is appropriate to continue to repair roads with reactive repairs or whether it was more appropriate to invest in a capital replacement thus negating the ongoing reactive maintenance costs in the short/medium term and what was the criteria used for making those decisions.
The Scrutiny Adviser advised that these requests would be chased up with the relevant officers.
