The Head of Local Place and Engagement presented this report and gave a short presentation on completed schemes, as well as detailing progress on some current schemes.
Mr Dodwell asked for progress on the replacement of a derelict bench on Manor Road, and improvement to lighting in Ross Parade alley.
With regard to the lighting issue, Councillor Steve Cook explained that a site meeting had taken place, but the Council cannot act as the alleyway is on private land and the improvements to the lighting must be carried out by the landlord. The scheme will therefore be progressed no further.
The Head of Local Place and Engagement explained that officers are in contact with a property management company acting on behalf of the owner of the land on which the bench is situated, and works will be carried out when consent is given by the owner.
RESOLVED: That the Beddington and Wallington Local Committee
Agrees to earmark funds of £21,750 for hanging
baskets and approve the locations, to be funded from Public Realm
capital budget (converted to revenue), subject to budgets being
made available within the 2016/17 budget cycle that will be
approved in March 2016.
Notes the progress on the current Public Realm
3. Notes the recycling of £3,000 from the Manor Road shopping area (BW15/16.13) which Councillors have chosen not to progress following a meeting with shop owners.
