1) A resident asked where there any plans to change the junction of Mulgrave Road and Brighton Road where turning right into Brighton Road.
The Strategic Director of Environment, Housing and Regeneration advised that there were no plans to make any changes to that junction and the work there was now complete. However the SDEHR also advised that if the imminent Road Safety Audit raises any issues then they will be looked at. It was advised that the CCTV at that junction had been looked at.
2) It was asked if there was any update on the relocation of ICR Entrance in Cotswold Road and the proposed traffic lights.
The Chair answered that this is a planning application that has been de-delegated to a hearing.
3) It was asked on behalf of Shanklin Village if there was any update on the yellow lines in Hulverston Close being repainted.
The Team Leader of Strategy and Commissioning, Highways and Transport, advised that this was on the list of sites approved on the last round and is currently under investigation. There will consultations to follow. It was expected that this would be begin in approximately August 2016.
4) It was asked if there had been any agreement on the Shanklin Estate between Sutton Housing Partnership (SHP) and Hulverston Close.
Councillor David Hicks advised that there is a mix of public highway and private parking which causes issues, and there have been attempts to arrange discussions between SHP and the London Borough of Sutton Highways Department about a joint scheme to provide a comprehensive parking system for the whole estate, but this has been difficult due to staffing changes within the department. This process needed to be restarted. It was noted there are issues with people parking all day for commuting.
The SDEHR would arrange for the Chief Executive of SHP to be contacted to arrange for officers to walk-around and assess and suggest resolutions. There would be a response to the September meeting of the Committee.
