This report comprises the addendum to the January 2021 Report requested by the Cabinet Member.

Additional documents:


The Committee considered the Report, presented by Steve Iles, Director of Public Realm, which comprised of an addendum to the January 2021 Report requested by the Cabinet Member for Sustainable Croydon. The Addendum advised on the continuing soundness of the recommendations made to Traffic Management Advisory Committee (TMAC) in the January 2021 Report in the light of the judgment in R (UTAG & LTDA) v Mayor of London and Transport for London (TfL) [2021]. The Addendum additionally considered the revision to the Equality Analysis since the publication of the ‘Pave the Way’ report; the access of taxis and buses to the South Norwood and Crystal Palace Low Traffic neighbourhood (LTN); and a Greater London Authority (GLA) and TfL commissioned study into the air quality improvement effects of implementing the Mayor’s air quality related policies. This Addendum recommended increasing the categories of vehicle to which Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera technology exempted and asked the committee to endorse the proposed 12 month experimental orders.


The Chair explained that the meeting was to consider the additional information contained within the Addendum Report. During the 12 January 2021 meeting of TMAC, Committee Members listened and considered the views of those who registered to publically address the advisory Committee. This procedure was in line with the Protocol for Participation in Meetings of the TMAC which was contained in Part 5H of the Constitution.


Questions from the Committee to Officers

The Director of Public Realm firstly replied that the reasoning of the introduction of provisions was clear in the January 2021 Report and officers agreed with the recent adjustments which allowed for taxis, care workers and those who need access to the LTN. The Director of Public Realm secondly replied that the timeline was subject to the decision, following the statutory process of issuing a notice to neighbouring boroughs as set out in 121B of the Road Traffic Management Act (1998). This would provide one month for any concerns to be raised and reviewed. After the one month notice period, the notice would be referred to the GLA as the adjudicator in the statutory process.


In response to Councillor Luke Clancy asking whether dispensations were planned for those with disabilities without a Blue Badge, the Director of Public Realm stated that people who believed they met the criteria to hold a Blue Badge should seek that provision. Councillor Luke Clancy stated the report detailed the opinion that the monitoring of the experimental LTN should be designed to determine if the worsening of air quality would disproportionately affect BAME groups. He asked how this would be achieved and what baseline data would be used. The Director of Public Realm replied that the January 2021 Report described the roll out of monitoring methods to gather  ...  view the full minutes text for item 10/20
