183. TRAFFIC CALMING, INGLEBY BARWICK.

The Chairman introduced Mr D. Mitchell, Community Engineer, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council (S.B.C.), who was invited to the meeting to discuss traffic calming in Ingleby Barwick.

Mr Mitchell informed that S.B.C. has arranged for 40 mph repeater road markings on red ‘roundels’ along the length of both Ingleby Way and Barwick Way.  These will be placed on the road surface immediately adjacent to the repeater plates on the lamppost.

It was noted that an order has been placed to provide the 30 mph roundels at the village gateways.

S.B.C. are investigating the Parish Councils request for traffic calming on Beckfields Avenue although in view of the fact that it is a bus route and the recent adverse reaction to humped facilities on Middle Road it is unlikely that this type of feature will be appropriate.

It is suggested that central refuges would be more appropriate as implemented on Lowfields Avenue.

The suggestion of ‘flashing’ speed signs was raised, which highlight drivers to the speed they are traveling at. 

 

Chairman…………………………

                                                                                                                        3 of 15

It was noted that as these are purely advisory signs that cannot be used to prosecute and are not official devices, they are now open to use.

The possibility of providing speed humps was discussed, however it was noted that the 2002/03 accident statistics showed no accidents in Ingleby Barwick.

Mr Mitchell informed that the implementation of 20 mph limits need to be self enforcing and require the appropriate traffic calming measures.

 

RESOLVED that Mr Mitchell request flashing speed signs from S.B.C. for Ingleby Barwick, for Beckfields Avenue/Blair Avenue.  The Clerk to follow up the request with a letter from the Parish Council.

 

The Chairman thanked Mr Mitchell for his attendance at the meeting.

 

184.  MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF INGLEBY BARWICK PARISH COUNCIL HELD ON 21ST JANUARY 2004 AND MINUTES OF THE SPECIAL MEETING HELD ON 28TH JANUARY 2004.  AFTER CONSIDERATION, TO APPROVE THE SIGNATURE OF THE MINUTES BY THE PERSON PRESIDING AS A CORRECT RECORD.

The Minutes of the Meeting of Ingleby Barwick Parish Council held on 21st January 2004 and Minutes of the Special Meeting held on 28th January 2004, having been circulated to Members and displayed in the Parish Council Noticeboards, were confirmed as a correct record and signed by the Chairman at the meeting, accordingly.

 

185. LOWFIELDS AVENUE EXTENSION, INGLEBY BARWICK PROPOSED PROHIBITION OF DRIVING.

The residents attending the meeting were given the opportunity to participate in the discussion and outlined their concerns in respect of the proposed closure of Lowfields Avenue extension.

The importance of the need for a public consultation meeting was highlighted.

 

186. SOUTH STOCKTON LINK ROAD/QUEEN ELIZABETH WAY – PROPOSED DESIGNATION OF ONE LANE FOR BUSES AND CARS CARRYING MORE THAN ONE PASSENGER.

The residents attending the meeting were given the opportunity to participate in the discussion and outlined their concerns in respect of the proposed designation of one lane of South Stockton Link Road/Queen Elizabeth Way for buses and cars carrying more than one passenger.

It was noted that Ingleby Barwick, which has in the region of six thousand houses at present and a further two thousand yet to be built, has suffered traffic congestion from virtually the outset, however the opening of Queen Elizabeth Way, Stage 3 of South Stockton Link Road has made a huge difference and any plans for lane restrictions should not be implemented without public consultation.

 

Chairman…………………………..

                                                                                                                        4 of 15

 

187. DOES THE PARISH COUNCIL AGREE THAT THE EXISTING PLANS (LOWFIELDS CLOSURE/LOW LANE SCHOOL/SSLR BUS LANE) SHOULD BE PUT ON HOLD TO ALLOW FULL PUBLIC CONSULTATION IN KEEPING WITH STOCKTON COUNCIL’S CORE VALUES AND BEACON COUNCIL STATUS, WHEREBY RESIDENTS CAN ASSIST STOCKTON COUNCIL IN CHANGING AND REVISING THESE PROPOSALS FOR THE GOOD OF INGLEBY BARWICK AS A WHOLE?

 

The residents attending the meeting were given the opportunity to participate in the discussion.

It was noted that the residents had requested traffic flow data from S.B.C., which they are now in receipt of.

Concerns were raised in respect of all three proposals and it was agreed that at this crucial stage of development, a comprehensive overview of the traffic situation in Ingleby Barwick is required before any further proposals are implemented.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk sent a letter to the Head of Engineering and Transportation, S.B.C. informing that the Parish Council has been asked by residents of Ingleby Barwick to request that S.B.C. call a public consultation meeting in Ingleby Barwick, to discuss the following three issues:

 

-                     Lowfields Avenue Extension, Ingleby Barwick,

Proposed Prohibition of Driving;

 

-                     South Stockton Link Road (Queen Elizabeth Way),

Proposed lane restriction for buses and high occupancy

vehicles;

 

-                     Playing Fields, South of Ingleby Barwick, Adjacent to Low Lane,

Proposed 630 Place Primary School and 39 Place Nursery with New Access Road, Associated Car Parking and Playing Fields.

 

The three issues itemised above, will all have an impact on traffic in Ingleby Barwick and need careful consideration to avoid the return of traffic congestion.

A public meeting would give residents the opportunity to provide valuable input into the decision-making process and enable S.B.C. to ascertain their views and comments.

The Clerk to suggest that a suitable venue for the meeting would be All Saints Secondary School, Blair Avenue, Ingleby Barwick, which would need to be attended by the appropriate Stockton Borough Council Officers.

The Clerk informed that a meeting has been arranged at Beckfields shopping centre on Thursday 26th February 2004 at 10.00 am, to look at the area at the side of the Medical Centre, adjacent to Thorington Gardens and investigate possible solutions to the problems being experienced at the location.

Chairman……………………………

                                                                                                                        7 of 15

 

It is noted that as Inspector White pointed out in his letter dated 10th June 2002, both sets of measures do not actually impose an absolute prohibition on the consumption of alcohol within the designated areas, they simply create an offence of continuing to drink after having been asked not to do so by a police officer.  This point is mentioned because it is not widely understood, but makes it clearer why the presence of police officers is essential to the process.

 

A letter has been received from the Police regarding the possible introduction of alcohol free zones in Ingleby Barwick.  It is noted that such measures are in force in certain locations within Stockton Council area.  One such area is the High Street area of Yarm.

It is noted that the legislation, which enforces such a restriction, is certainly a useful tool in the armoury of measures to tackle drunkenness and other aspects of anti-social behaviour.  However, whilst on the face of it this would be a straightforward way to prevent drinking in public places the practicalities of enforcing such a ban are more complex.  In addition, there should be some consideration given to circumstances which may arise when drinking in public would not lead to any acts of disorder, but would, nevertheless, be illegal under such legislation.

Whilst the idea of designated alcohol free areas in Ingleby Barwick is not dismissed, there are some concerns over how it would be enforced, and the Police would welcome the opportunity to come to a Parish Council meeting to discuss the matter.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk invite Inspector Coates to attend the Parish Council meeting in either March or April 2004, depending on when he is available.

 

(i) Item 115 2003/2004 Ingleby Barwick Coat of Arms.

The Clerk noted that due to the tight schedule for the official opening of both Ingleby Barwick Library and Myton Park Primary School on Friday 13th February 2004, it was not able to present the framed copies of the Coat of Arms.

The Clerk is liaising with the Library on the matter.

 

The Chairman informed that Myton Park Primary School is holding a family assembly at 10.10 am on 11th March 2004 and they would be delighted for the framed Coat of Arms to be presented to the school at the assembly.  The Chairman invited any other Parish Councillors available on the day to attend.

 

(j) Item 122 (o) 2003/2004 – Society of Local Council Clerks – One Day Conference – Quality Councils, on 21st November 2003 at the Bridge Hotel Wetherby.

The Clerk noted that the second conference is to take place on Tuesday 16th March 2004 in South Kirkby. An invitation has been received and the Clerk has confirmed the attendance of Councillors T. Bowman, Mrs I. Machin, Mrs S. Rouse and herself.

(k) Item 137 2003/2004  Ingleby Barwick Roman Villa Site.

The Clerk noted receipt of a letter from Tees Archaeology informing that they are funded by the four unitary authorities in the Teesside area and their task is to maintain a record of all the archaeological sites in the area, provide advice to the local authorities and to provide information and archaeological opportunities for local people.

They are of course well aware of the site at Ingleby Barwick and were instrumental in securing the work which has taken place and in opening the site to the public.  They have been impressed with the level of interest and concern about the site.  As the Parish Council will be aware a significant part of the site, the main villa building, has been protected and will be retained under the grass of the largest open area in Ingleby Barwick.  This is in line with current government policy which envisages ‘preservation in situ’ as the best solution for a nationally important site.

The Parish Council has raised the question as to where we go from here.  It is important to recognize the reality of the situation and to see how best the work which has taken place can be used.  The archaeological excavation has produced a wide range of material and this will be processed and worked upon in the next year or so.  Following this the material will be deposited with themselves and they will look after the material on behalf of Stockton Borough Council to whom it will belong.

It is therefore possible to envisage a situation in a year or so when this

material and the story it tells will become available.  It is therefore suggested

that we should be thinking as to how we would want to use this to ensure that as many people as possible can have access to the material and to the story it tells.  There are many ways in which this can happen; through information panels on site, leaflets, booklets, displays, exhibitions, educational packs and electronic media such as CD-ROMs and websites.  Careful thought about this might result in a proposal which all parties involved in the situation might feel able to support both financially and in kind and might attract lottery funding.

A representative from Tees Archaeology would be happy to attend a meeting to discuss this further and if the Parish Council wishes to pursue this route they may wish to involve Persimmon and Stockton Museum Service in any discussions.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk invite a representative from Tees Archaeology to attend the Parish Council meeting in March or April 2004, depending on when they are available.

 

(l) Item 145 2003/2004 Primary Education in Ingleby Barwick.

It was noted that the matter was to be discussed by Cabinet on Thursday 29th January 2004.

No further information to date.

The next meeting is scheduled to take place at 7.00 pm on 25th March 2004.

 

(n) Item 177 2003/2004 Ingleby Barwick Community Hall – Extension Proposals.

Councillor Feldon informed that he is liaising with Yarmside Holdings on the matter.

 

189.  INGLEBY BARWICK COMMUNITY WARDENS.

 

It was noted that the Parish Council has agreed to fund two Community Wardens working five hours per day, seven days a week for an initial 12 month period from April 2004.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk inform S.B.C. accordingly in order that the appropriate arrangements can be made for implementation of the scheme.

 

190. RECYCLING SCHEME, INGLEBY BARWICK.

The Clerk noted receipt of a letter stating that Stockton Council has started to collect recyclable materials in Ingleby Barwick.  The scheme is intended to reduce the amount of material being sent to landfill and use it to produce new materials.  In pursuance of monitoring the scheme for environmental efficiency S.B.C. would be grateful if the Parish Council could provide them with some feedback on the operation in Ingleby Barwick.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk send a reply to S.B.C. informing that the Parish Council support the scheme which is welcomed in Ingleby Barwick, although comments had been received as to why the blue recycling box have not been provided with a lid.
