Recommendation approved


Reasons for recommendation

To provide a modern car parking facility for members of the public which maximises the use of space whilst providing an improved experience for visitors.


The Council has an obligation to maintain the car park in a safe usable condition, the current car park condition is poor and potential hazards are now becoming apparent.


This proposed appointment of a contractor to undertake improvement works ensures that the Council can fulfil its obligations to provide safe parking provision.


Other options considered and rejected

To carry out no enhancement works and undertake essential maintenance only, such as patch repairing.  This option was rejected due to the requirement for improved parking facilities, wider parking bays and current on-site hazards.
