Overrule the objection and authorise the making of the Traffic Regulation Order in the form given in the Notice of Proposals as set out in the Report.

 

The Reasons are: That the necessary action be taken under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 to advertise the intention to make the Traffic Order to introduce City of Salford (Salford Crescent, Salford) (Clearway Exemption for Buses, Prohibition of Stopping on the Verge or Footway and Revocation) Order 2018.

Legal Advice obtained: The objection to the proposal may engage provisions of the Equality Act 2010.  In the exercise of a public function that is not a 'service to the public', a public authority must make reasonable adjustments and not do anything that constitutes discrimination, harassment or victimisation.  Public functions not involving a service to the public include 'the provision of public highways'. 

Discrimination may be 'direct or indirect'.  Indirect discrimination occurs where a person applies a provision, criterion or practice which although applied to everyone, puts one group of persons with a protected characteristic at a particular disadvantage.  Indirect discrimination can be lawful if shown to be 'a proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim'.  Councils are also subject to the general Public Sector Equality Duty.

Salford Playing Pitch Assessment and Salford Playing Pitch Strategy and Action Plan 2015 to 2025 (PPS) - 2018 Review. pdf icon PDF 2 MB

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I, Councillor Derek Antrobus, Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development, in exercise of the powers contained within the Council Constitution, do hereby:

 

  • Note that the review of Salford Playing Pitch Assessment and Salford Playing Pitch Strategy and Action Plan 2015 - 2025 (PPS) was completed in 2018 resulting in minimal material changes.

 

  • Approve the adoption of the updated documents as a material consideration for planning applications, particularly those that involve the loss of playing fields, and to guide future investment in sports facilities.

 

The reasons are that a review has been undertaken to update the assessment, strategy and action plan that was completed in 2015. These documents have been endorsed by Sport England and the relevant national governing bodies for sport.

 

Options considered and rejected: No other options were considered for this report

 

Assessment of Risk is low.

 

The PPS is an important document that is required to assist in planning policy and also in the process of securing external funding relating to sports facilities. A failure to have such a strategy would potentially restrict planning decisions and ensure a more difficult relationship with Sport England, and also would limit Salford’s ability to secure external funding.

 

The costs of completing the update were met by existing budgets of Salford Community Leisure.

 

Legal Advice obtained from: Stephanie Hall and reflected in the Lead Member report.

 

Financial Advice obtained from: Martin Angleseyand reflected in the Lead Member report.

 

Procurement Advice obtained: Not applicable
