Questions by Elected Members

To consider any questions which may have been received from Elected Members and which are asked pursuant to Standing Order No. 11.


(a)  Councillor Hunt


‘What plans does the council have to implement more 20mph zones within residential areas and outside schools in the borough?’


(b)  Councillor Fielding


‘Many residents have asked me if the proposed children’s play area at Penny Pie Park Gyratory can be placed in a different location further away from the traffic and the high levels of Nitrous Oxides emitted by that traffic but I am advised by the project team that it will be constructed as shown on the current plans, just yards from the new highway.


Why is this location being used rather than one much further away from traffic?’


(c)  Councillor Kitching


‘On 19th February this year Cllr Chris Lamb issued a statement in response to concerns about the high costs of security at Penny Pie Park in which he said

‘The anticipated cost for the security services, including the purchasing and hiring of fencing, totals £220,000’

A little more than 6 months later, a report to Cabinet stated that the costs of security and fencing at Penny Pie Park now stand at £447,000.

Why have these costs more than doubled in this short time and can the Cabinet member please confirm that these increases are not as a result of scheme enhancements requested by residents.

What is the anticipated final cost for the security and fencing at Penny Pie Park?’


(d)  Councillor Hunt


‘The Section 106 agreement accompanying the granting of outline planning permission for the former North Gawber Colliery site in Mapplewell, under planning reference 2014/0452, required the developer to pay a sum of £77,580 as a Highways Infrastructure Contribution towards improvement works associated with Swallow Hill Road, Mapplewell. This sum has been paid by the developer. Please can an update be provided on the plans of the council to implement these much-needed highway improvement works.’


(e)  Councillor Hunt


On 23rd May the Secretary of State for Transport announced an active travel fund to support local authorities in implementing facilities for cycling and walking. The funding is in two tranches:-

·         tranche 1 supports the installation of temporary projects for the COVID-19 pandemic

·         tranche 2 supports the creation of longer-term projects ?

Please provide an update on the amount of funding that the council has secured in relation to this opportunity and what its plans are to implement schemes in relation to each tranche of funding.’
