Approval for the acquisition of land to enable the extension of the Temple Green Park and Ride car park.
Further to Minute No. 18, 15th July 2015, the Director of City Development submitted a report which provided an update regarding the success of the Park & Ride facilities in Leeds and which provided details of the opportunity for the Temple Green facility to be extended.
Responding to a Member’s enquiry, it was noted that the current Park and Ride schemes in Leeds were operating on a ‘profit share’ basis between the Council and the bus operator, with the Director of City Development undertaking to provide the Member in question with further detail on the performance of the ‘profit share’ model with regard to the Temple Green site.
The Executive Member responded to a Member’s comments regarding the need to strike the correct balance between the expansion of the bus lane network and also ensuring sufficient capacity for other traffic, and the considerations which would be given to ensuring that any current or future Park and Ride sites could adapt and fit with the evolving public transport network in Leeds.
Following the consideration of Appendix 1 to the submitted report designated as exempt from publication under the provisions of Access to Information Procedure Rule 10.4(3), which was considered in private at the conclusion of the meeting, it was
