Any county councillor may, by giving notice to the Proper Officer by 9 am two working days before the meeting, ask a question on any matter in respect of the Cabinet Member’s delegated powers.

 

The number of questions which may be asked by any councillor at any one meeting is limited to two (or one question with notice and a supplementary question at the meeting) and the time for questions will be limited to 30 minutes in total. As with questions at Council, any questions which remain unanswered at the end of this item will receive a written response.

 

Questions submitted prior to the agenda being despatched are shown below and will be the subject of a response from the appropriate Cabinet Member or such other councillor or officer as is determined by the Cabinet Member, and shall not be the subject of further debate at this meeting. Questions received after the despatch of the agenda, but before the deadline, will be shown on the Schedule of Addenda circulated at the meeting, together with any written response which is available at that time.

Petitions and Public Address

Currently council meetings are taking place in-person (not virtually) with social distancing operating in the venues.  However, members of the public who wish to speak at this meeting can attend the meeting ‘virtually’ through an online connection.  Places at the meeting are very limited due to the requirements of social distancing.  While you can ask to attend the meeting in person, you are strongly encouraged to attend ‘virtually’ to minimise the risk of Covid-19 infection.

 

Please also note that in line with current government guidance all attendees are strongly encouraged to take a lateral flow test in advance of the meeting.

 

Normally requests to speak at this public meeting are required by 9 am on the day preceding the published date of the meeting. However, during the current situation and to facilitate these new arrangements we are asking that requests to speak are submitted by no later than 9am four working days before the meeting i.e. 9 am on 23rd July 2021. Requests to speak should be sent to graham.warrington@oxfordshire.gov.uk.  You will be contacted by the officer regarding the arrangements for speaking.

 

If you ask to attend in person, the officer will also advise you regarding Covid-19 safety at the meeting.  If you are speaking ‘virtually’, you may submit a written statement of your presentation to ensure that if the technology fails, then your views can still be taken into account. A written copy of your statement can be provided no later than 9 am 2 working days before the meeting i.e. Tuesday 27 July 2021. Written submissions should be no longer than 1 A4 sheet.

Report by Corporate Director Environment & Place (CMDTDS4).

 

The Burford Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) of 7.5t was approved by the former Cabinet Member for Environment on 18 July 2019 and has been in place since 5 August 2020. This report provides an interim update on the scheme impacts following the end of the public consultation and traffic monitoring that took place in February.

The report recommends the Burford ETRO continues to February 2022 to allow for further monitoring in Autumn 2021 using camera technology to provide greater detail of the classification of 2 axle heavy good vehicles and requests Burford Town Council review, with OCC officers, the permit scheme operations and criteria to reflect the needs of the local rural economy as outlined in some of the consultation responses. It does not consider whether the Burford ETRO will be made permanent and that decision will be taken at the end of the full eighteen-month experimental order period, in January 2022. 

The Cabinet Member is RECOMMENDED to:

a)               continue the Burford Experimental Traffic Regulation Order of 7.5t to February 2022;

b)              conduct further traffic monitoring in Autumn 2021 using camera technology to provide greater detail of the classification of 2 axle heavy good vehicles;

c)               request Burford Town Council review, with OCC officers, the permit scheme operations and criteria to reflect the needs of the local rural economy;

d)              note the Burford ETRO will be returned to Cabinet Member Decisions in January 2022 for a final decision on the scheme.
