Report: See pages 47-55 of the agenda.
The committee heard an officer’s introduction to the report and members asked questions of the officer.
Members discussed the report.
That with regards to the publication/submission of the draft revised Canada Water Area Action Plan (RCWAAP) (Appendix A of the report) the committee commented as follows:
a) The committee noted with concern that the draft RCWAAP omitted proposals for the development of a further secondary school in the Rotherhithe peninsula. The committee understood that currently there was only one secondary school serving a large catchment area despite the continuing demand for secondary school places in the area. The committee noted that the Harmsworth Quays site could potentially provide a suitable location for such an amenity.
b) The committee expressed its concern regarding the apparent lack of action to address the ongoing highways problems caused by the flow of traffic on the Lower Road gyratory. The committee sought reassurance through the provision of a rational timetable for the development of the reconfigured road system.
