Council Decides To Hold Off On Scrapping Some Transportation Network Plans
It will be late August at the earliest before city council decides what changes, if any, will be made to internal transportation networks in the Hidden Valley, North West and Gateway area structure plans.
City administration wanted to remove the existing network plans in order to look at new plans to coincide with the Shields Health and Education Centre.
But council decided to take no action for three months, after several land owners and developers expressed concerns about scrapping those plans.
City planner Joe Johnson thinks the decision does not have a huge impact on the work they need to do.
"Well, I think a lot of the work we would have done if council defeated it would've been hte same if they approved it would've been the same if they postponed it, so it doesn't really change what we have to do."
Johnson says the impact will be seen more in the information that is made available to the public, which impacts what they believe is going to happen in the area in regards to future development concepts.
