3 NOTICE OF OTHER BUSINESS
Items of other business notified under Council Procedure Rule 30 to be announced, together with the special circumstances that justify their consideration as a matter of urgency. The Chairman to rule on the admission of such items.
4. DECLARATION OF INTERESTS
To receive any declarations of interest.
5. TO RECEIVE THREE PETITIONS UNDER COUNCIL PROCEDURE RULE 18
- To receive a petition signed by 71 residents, which states: “We the undersigned strongly object to the proposed introduction of Parking Permits for the residents of Repton Way as proposed in your parking consultation document 2018. We believe there is no need for a Residents Permit Zone on Repton Way and would prefer that the existing parking regulations were properly enforced.”
- To receive a petition signed by 34 residents, against parking restrictions/single yellow lines on Frankland Close: “34 out of 44 houses are against parking restrictions, especially the proposal for yellow lines. One house did not want to sign this petition, and the other nine were not contactable. I must point out that the opposition is to the yellow lines, and there are mixed views on whether parking permits should be considered if that is what Frankland Road ends up agreeing to. If Frankland Road does have parking permits after this consultation process, then the residents of Frankland Close would wish to be consulted on the possibility of having the same scheme as Frankland Road.”
- To receive a petition signed by 32 residents, which states:“There is a growing concern and considerable unrest between residents in this road. There are not enough parking spaces, which also includes problems for health attendants and tradesmen unable to start pre-arranged work. It has been said that tradesmen can get dispensation to park on yellow lines but this cannot be done in this road without it being completely blocked. Some time ago, after some two years of complaints, 2 chicanes were removed, there are still four more that could be removed which would be of some help and, if possible, a few spaces in the long term car park at the west end of Talbot Road be allocated to residents. We would like our complaint to be looked at urgently to avoid more unrest in what has always been a very friendly road.”
6. VERGE PARKING MANAGEMENT CRITERIA

If the Committee wishes to consider the remaining item in private, it will be appropriate for a resolution to be passed in the following terms:-
“that under Section 100A of the Local Government Act 1972 the press and public be excluded from the meeting for the following item of business on the grounds that it involves the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined under paragraph 3 of Part I of Schedule 12A to the Act.
