Note:   Under Standing Order 1.8.6, Cr D Newman requested his dissenting vote be recorded against the Integrated Transport Plan (ITP) recommendations i) and ii) in Attachment B for the following reasons:

·         fails to sufficiently acknowledge the significant economic benefits for the Roads of National Significance (RONS), including the contribution to the resilience of transport and stormwater infrastructure;

·         appears to close the door to discussion about the opportunity to advance bespoke transport solutions that encourage multi-modal outcomes such as a bus priority corridor, carpooling, and cycling (if grade separation exists within the corridor); and

·         makes no reference to the settled Notice of Requirement (NoR) processes, which have been undertaken to date.
