26 (26) TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF CARLTON STREET CAR PARK – The Director: Children and Community Resilience submitted an urgent report seeking approval to close the Carlton Street car park between 26 March and 7 April 2018.

For a number of years a travelling pleasure fair has visited Scunthorpe each Easter and on most occasions has been sited on the surface car park in Carlton Street. On these occasions use of the car park had been suspended, a legal agreement was entered into and approval had been granted by the council.

A request had been received for the use of the car park once again between 26 March and 7 April 2018. A request to site the Fair in the car park in Scunthorpe had been submitted to the Multi Agency Event Safety Advisory Group (ESAG) which included, Property Services, Environmental Health and Humberside Police.

The council was required to post a Formal Notification in the local press about the closure of the car park for the said period.

An urgent decision was required as notice needed to be served on the car park closure by 12 March 2018.

Resolved – That permission to temporarily close part of the Carlton Street pay and display car park from 26 March to 7 April 2018 be approved.
