19/06/2024 - Mayor's Cycling and Walking Challenge Fund - Romiley District Centre Improvements and Romiley To Stockport Cycling and Walking Route Traffic Regulation Orders ref: 6927    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Parks, Highways & Transport Services

Decision published: 09/07/2024

Effective from: 16/07/2024

Decision:

The Cabinet Member for Parks, Highways & Transport Services has considered details of a proposed package of traffic regulation orders associated with the ATF4 Romiley project.  The initial proposals were developed under the Mayor’s Cycling and Walking Challenge Fund (MCF) as part of the ‘Romiley District Centre’ and ‘Romiley to Stockport’ packages. These were previously presented along with the consultation reports containing representations by residents and businesses and approved by the Werneth Area Committee at meetings that took place on 8 March and 21 November 2021 respectively.

 

Following the meeting of the Werneth Area Committee on 4 March 2024, late feedback was received from Active Travel England, which has resulted in the location for the new toucan crossing on Hatherlow needing to be moved 3 metres south of its original proposed location. In addition to this, anomalies have been noted within the traffic regulation order (TRO) schedule presented to the Area Committee.

 

The amendments to both the plan and TRO Schedule are shown on the revised drawing and detailed in the revised TRO Schedule.

 

Ward councillors have been consulted on the proposed amendments in advance of their consideration by the Cabinet Member.

 

The Cabinet Member for Parks, Highways & Transport Services has subsequently given approval to the legal advertisement of the traffic regulation orders detailed in Appendix A and B to the report and, subject to the receipt of no objections within 21 days of the advertisement date, the subsequent making of the orders to be funded by funds availed to Stockport Council from the Active Travel Fund (Tranche 4).

08/07/2024 - Local Development Scheme ref: 6926    For Determination

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Climate Change & Environment

Decision published: 08/07/2024

Effective from: 13/07/2024

Decision:

The council's current Local Development Scheme was approved in January 2024.  It set out that consultation would be undertaken on a draft of the Stockport Local Plan in July and August 2024.

 

As a consequence of the announcement that a general election will be held on 4 July 2024, and seeking to avoid making a decision which is controversial in the context of the election, there has been a delay to the decision making process required to enable the July/August consultation to commence.  The council subsequently needs to update the LDS to reflect the rescheduled consultation period.  It is now proposed that consultation will be undertaken on a draft of the Stockport Local Plan from the start of September until mid-October.

 

The Cabinet Member for Climate Change & Environment has therefore given approval the July 2024 update of the Stockport Local Development Scheme (LDS) set out in Appendix A to this report.

The Cabinet Member for Finance & Resources has given approval to the write off 18 outstanding sundry income debts (total value of £333,436.16) considered to be irrecoverable. 

 

Every possible method of recovery has been attempted to recover these debts. However, for the reasons stated in the report, there is no further recovery action that can be taken to recover the money owed.

 

If circumstances change and it becomes possible to recover the debt, recovery can be reinstated even if the debt has been written off.
