Chantelle Swaby, Locality Lead Officer gave a presentation on schemes currently in progress and those recently completed.

 

The Locality Lead Officer advised that in regards to the 20mph in Churchill Road, the speed survey had been programmed in, following the rebuild of the speedhumps in August 2016, and then the survey will then be able to take place, hopefully in December 2016.

 

It was noted that the item “Community based activity to reduce antisocial behaviour in Worcester Park” was going to be removed from the subsequent report as this scheme was no longer going forward.

 

It was noted that the remaining balance was £35,644.
