Any views or opinions expressed in the questions set out in this Agenda paper are those of the persons submitting the questions and do not necessarily reflect the position, views or opinions of the Council.
(a) 3G Parking

Pursuant to Procedure Rule 11.2, the Corporate Director of Governance and Regulatory Services to report the receipt of the following question submitted on notice by Councillor Betton:

 

 

“The 3G football pitches at Edgehill Road, Harraby, are very well used by all and extremely successful.


The demand for the use of these football pitches at weekends for club football matches has increased so much that the existing car park accommodation on site is now limited, as there are not enough car park spaces to cope with the increase in demand for both spectators and club football players’ car parking.


This results in the over spill of cars parking outside residents’ homes on Edgehill, Allandale, & Silverdale Road, which causes inconvenience to those who live there and have expressed concern.


There are a number of possibilities which can be approached, and engaged in here, to look at possibly solving the problems caused by the excess parking. 


These are:


1. To negotiate the opening up of the vacated and redundant old temporary Newman school car park, Edgehill Road, which is on County Council land.


2. To submit plans to construct an extension of the existing 3G car park.


3. To encourage the use of the old Harraby Community Centre car park.


4. To look at the possibility of 3G customers using the new Pennine Way school and Harraby Community Centre car park.


5. To look at working with County Council parking enforcement and the Police regarding any obstruction or parking contravention on marked highway Lines.


Will the Leader and Portfolio Holder acknowledge there is a problem and commit and agree to:


Write to GLL, the County Council and the Police with the view of working collectively in resolving the excess parking issues through the Police HUB or other alternative routes available and report the results back to next full Council when resolved.”


(b) Durranhill Parking

Pursuant to Procedure Rule 11.2, the Corporate Director of Governance and Regulatory Services to report the receipt of the following question submitted on notice by Councillor Betton:

 

 

“Three years ago land on Rosehill Industrial estate which was owned by Carlisle City Council was sold.

 

Previously before the land was sold it was used as a car park which provided free car parking for visitors and employees to the Rosehill Industrial Estate area.

 

Free car parking was offered by the new Owners but was retracted when development of the land was completed.

 

Residents in Durranhill are concerned about the following:

 

  1. Introduction of parking charges on the developed land for employees which has resulted in them parking on the streets as they do not want to pay to park.

  2. The knock on effect of this which has caused parking concerns for them outside their houses at Farlam Drive, Hespek Raise, Montgomery Way, Geltsdale Avenue, and other areas including Scotby fly over bridge pavements, grass verges, residents off road parks and other areas for free.

 

There are also highway safety concerns expressed by Durranhill residents regarding vehicles parking on and obscuring driveways and disabled access, junctions and yellow lines which obscure motorists and pedestrian vision.

 

These concerns have been reported, expressed and shared with City and County Council, since the sale of the land three years ago and are still ongoing despite meetings and talks which have taken place without any clear resolution reached to solve this problem.

 

Will the Leader and Portfolio Holder agree to help the affected residents by:

 

Committing to write to and work with the County Council Highways looking jointly at all options open through the authority channels to resolving the problems described.

 

Arranging jointly between City and County Council a second meeting with the new landowners to ask again to reconsider opening up and offering free parking again.” 


(c) Riverbanks and Beds

Pursuant to Procedure Rule 11.2, the Corporate Director of Governance and Regulatory Services to report the receipt of the following question submitted on notice by Councillor Paton:

 

 

“Since Storm Desmond a phenomenal amount of money has been spent by this Council and the Environment Agency plus the County Council who have all been working together on the flood defences in the City plus the previous help that has been given to residents which has been greatly appreciated by all.

 

However no thought about dredging the rivers has been put in place as this would be greatly beneficial to all those residents who have gone through the misery and upheaval of the previous floods and the climate change is a great factor in this as well.

 

Will the portfolio holder commit and engage with the Environment Agency to dredge the rivers and clear the banks to give peace of mind to all our residents under the Councils riparian ownership of the riverbanks in relation to their leisure areas our parks and the golf course?.”


(d) Kingmoor Energy From Waste

Pursuant to Procedure Rule 11.2, the Corporate Director of Governance and Regulatory Services to report the receipt of the following question submitted on notice by Councillor Morton:

 

 

“Can the Deputy Leader give us an update to the recommendations and conclusions of the Kingmoor Energy From Waste City Council task group?”


(e) Proposed Energy From Waste Incinerator

Pursuant to Procedure Rule 11.2, the Corporate Director of Governance and Regulatory Services to report the receipt of the following question submitted on notice by Councillor Dr Davison:

 

 

“It is absolutely essential that north Carlisle residents and the wider Carlisle community have confidence in the council's scrutiny of the environmental permit application which was undertaken into the proposed energy from waste incinerator.

 

The motion passed by this council on 3rd March 2020 agreed that the council would "....make funding available for suitable consultant(s) to review any aspects of the permit application where the environmental health department considers they have insufficient expertise". This was a welcome move as it meant residents would not have to hire consultants themselves to scrutinise the application.

 

I understand that our environmental health department is commenting on noise and Ricardo was commissioned by the council and has scrutinised the application around air quality and odour issues which is really welcomed.

 

Has the task group organised for consultants on all areas that residents have expressed concern about such as water pollution, flood risk, fire and other accident risk, pests and the full ecological impact on the Kingmoor Nature Reserves, and if not why not?”
