The committee received a presentation from the GCP.


Members asked the following:

What would be the next steps following the consultation?

Would an equalities impact assessment be undertaken?


The officer responded by stating that the GCP would consider the responses to the consultation in December 2022 and make recommendations to the County Council early in 2023.  There would then be a second round of consultation on the next steps and prioritisation for the network-overall the implementation would take many years to complete.  The County Council had taken on board lessons learnt during the closures approved during the pandemic and would ensure more significant and earlier engagement with local communities and siakeholders.


The GCP had commissioned Access for All a charity to audit the proposals, in addition to an EQIA which would be produced.


Cllr Nethsingha stated that the end result must not be that those who live on the major routes have a worse impact (to now) whilst others benefit disproportionally-and the impact assessment would be a key tool in helping to assess that.


The committee thanked the officers for the presentation.
