Economic and Environmental Wellbeing Scrutiny and Policy Development Committee: Cycling Inquiry Report

Report of the Chief Executive

Decision:

13.1

The Chief Executive submitted a report in relation to the Economic and Environmental Wellbeing Scrutiny and Policy Development Committee Cycling Inquiry.

 

 

13.2

RESOLVED: That Cabinet:-

 

 

 

(a)

thanks the Economic and Environmental Wellbeing Scrutiny and Policy Development Committee for its work on the Cycling Inquiry;

 

 

 

 

(b)

notes the Cycling Inquiry report; and

 

 

 

 

(c)

requests a detailed response to the Economic and Environmental Wellbeing Scrutiny Committee’s Cycling Inquiry report from the Cabinet Member for Business, Skills and Development at the July 2014 Cabinet meeting.

 

 

 

13.3

Reasons for Decision

 

 

13.3.1

The Committee’s Cycling Inquiry report makes 19 recommendations. The Cabinet Member for Business, Skills and Development is asked to respond to the Committee’s Cycling Inquiry report in three months’ time as this would provide the Cabinet Member and the services with time to develop a detailed response.

 

 

13.4

Alternatives Considered and Rejected

 

 

13.4.1

Do nothing with the Committee’s Cycling Inquiry report. However, given the time and effort spent by the Committee’s Inquiry and contributions to the Inquiry from members of the public and other organisations this was not deemed a viable option.

 

 

13.4.2

Respond to the Committee’s Cycling Inquiry report over a much longer timescale. However, this would be at the risk of losing some of the momentum from the Inquiry.

 

 

13.5

Any Interest Declared or Dispensation Granted

 

 

 

None

 

 

13.6

Reason for Exemption if Public/Press Excluded During Consideration

13.7

Respective Director Responsible for Implementation
