Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No




That the current project be cancelled, and the full proposals be put on hold until funding is available, utilising the capital allocation for other current projects with budget pressures.  This would mean the Council would fail to deliver the proposed acoustic solution expected by the complainants.  However, the continued rise in material and construction costs could have both significant financial and public perception implications on the Council by users who enjoy the open public amenity that has been provided.  


That no build be carried out until consultation with South West Water due to the site being in a critical flood risk area.  


In view of the severe financial constraints on the council’s budget, the whole project to be put on hold for 12 months and noise complaints continue to be monitored and dialogue maintained with the residents concerned.
