3.1 To seek the Cabinet Member’s

to the County Council from an adjacent landowner to form part of
the adopted highway to enable the widening of the existing footway
to accommodate shared use cycle facility in Bobbin Mill Lane,
10.1 That the Cabinet Member:
a) Authorises the Director of Legal and Democratic Services to enter into a legal agreement for the dedication of land to the County Council from an adjacent landowner to form part of the adopted highway for the widening of the existing footway to accommodate shared use cycle facility in Bobbin Mill Lane, Chesterfield Road.
11.1 The recent consultation with the local
community and key stakeholders has demonstrated overall broad
support for the proposals and funding has been secured for the
project from the Department for Transport.
11.2 The benefits of the proposals meets the Council’s pledged to tackle climate change stated in the carbon reduction manifesto, which includes supporting and promoting the development of low carbon travel and sustainable travel and smarter choices.
6.1 Do something different – Alternative
proposals to avoid the requirement for the land dedication were
investigated, but due to the constraints on site with regard to the
car park access, bus stop requirements and cycling and pedestrian
safety/comfort the existing proposals provide the greatest level of
service along with cost benefit.
6.2 Do Nothing – Will potentially be a safety issue for cyclists who will be forced in the carriageway with interaction with buses and vehicles entering/exiting the car park. Some cyclists may use the existing narrow footway causing a conflict between pedestrians and bus users.
