AGREED that the minutes of the meeting held on 21 January 2019 are agreed as a correct record.

 

Councillor Danny Purton said that allocation of the North Essex Parking Partnership’s (NEPP) surplus had now been agreed. NEPP would be investing in long term solutions including ANPR. He also explained that the off-street element of NEPP had been dissolved. This meant Harlow Council was now responsible for off-street parking.

 

In response to a question by Councillor Tony Edwards, about major improvements to Momples Road junction with First Avenue, Rissa Long, Highways Liaison Officer, said it was still necessary to wait until Junction 7a for the M11 was constructed before improvements to Momples Road could take place.
