Trees on Gillingham Green blocking light

21 April 2022

The trees at the rear of the properties are tall lime trees and reduction work would not be beneficial to the long-term health of the trees, nor would it create a significant amount of additional light within the rear gardens.

 

There is an alley at the rear and there is no significant overhang.  However, Medway Norse will apply for lifting the lower branches and clearing the regrowth at the base, which may help alleviate the problems and allow more light in the gardens.  This will be subject to planning approval.

 

To be considered at the meeting of the Regeneration, Culture and Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee to be held on 11 August 2022

Register Sunlight Centre as an Asset of Community Value

21 April 2022

In order for the Sunlight Centre to be considered for listing as an Asset of Community Value an application needs to be submitted to the Council which sets out how it meets the criteria. Unfortunately, we are unable to consider whether or not it is appropriate to list the centre as an asset of community value without the correct process being followed.

Access road to rear of Granville Road; Potholes

21 April 2022

The access track at the rear of the even numbered properties is Council-owned.  The area to the south is not but is public highway and a footpath. The track is not public highway and unfortunately there is no budget to regularly maintain it.  However, from time to time, maintenance (mainly filling in potholes) and clearance has been carried out.

 

There is no budget for resurfacing the track and improving drainage to the footpath.

To be considered at the meeting of the Regeneration, Culture and Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee to be held on 11 August 2022

Road Safety Measures on Chalk Pit Hill

2 March 2022

The approach is to tackle those locations with the poorest safety records first. During the most recent five years of available Police records, there have been no collisions reported involving road user injury. This will mean there are other locations within Medway that are suffering poorer ongoing road safety problems and unfortunately, we are therefore unable to propose road alterations in this area at this time. The safety record of this location will continue to be monitored.

Speed Calming on Edwin Road

9 February 2022

The approach is to tackle those locations with the poorest safety records first. During the most recent three years of available Police records, there has been one collision reported involving road user injury throughout Edwin Road. This will mean there are other locations that are suffering poorer ongoing road safety problems and unfortunately, we are therefore unable to propose road alterations in this area at this time. The safety record of this location will continue to be monitored. We do work to promote and enhance road safety wherever possible, and we have previously introduced vehicle activated signing, along with road markings aimed at raising road safety awareness at Edwin Road.

 

At the meeting of the Regeneration, Culture and Environment Overview and Scrutiny Committee held on 9 June 2022 the Committee agreed to:

 

  1. note the petition responses and appropriate officer action set out in paragraph 3 of the report.

 

  1. note the petition referral request set out in paragraph 4 of the report and the Director of Place and Deputy Chief Executive’s response.

 

  1. request that the data from the Kent Police Speed Watch pilot be sent to Members and that existing data held by the Council be re-visited as part of revising the road safety action plan.
