The Groves Area Experimental Traffic Regulation Order
Decision Maker: Decision Session - Executive Member for Transport, Executive Member for Transport
Decision status: Decision Made
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
Purpose of Report: To gain approval for the progression of the
Groves Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) taking account
of comments raised by the public where possible and in accordance
with the Government’s Guidance on the progression of schemes
during the COVID 19 outbreak.
The Executive Member is asked to approve the progression of the experimental TRO
The Council aims to give the same 28 days clear notice of non key decisions as it does for key decisions, but in exceptional circumstances this may not be possible. In this case, following the recent Government’s Emergency Active Travel Fund, the item is being considered as an urgent matter because a decision is required sooner than anticipated to allow The Groves’ neighbourhood traffic reduction 18-month trial to move ahead more quickly.
i) That the outcome of the consultation carried out in February 2020 and the proposed method for further consultation as the project was implemented be noted.
Reason: To comply with City of York Council public engagement expectations and to comply with the legal requirements of taking forward Traffic Regulation Orders.
ii) That Option 3 be agreed – items a to m - the implementation of an 18 month Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (Exp. TRO).
Reason: Because an Exp. TRO provides the greatest flexibility in cases where it was anticipated there may need to be adjustments made at short notice and in a timely fashion to improve the scheme.
iii) That the start date be within the next few weeks, taking account of practical arrangements such as ordering signs and notifying residents and businesses of the start date.
Reason: In order to secure funding through the Emergency Active Travel Fund that required expenditure within 8 weeks to facilitate reallocation of road space to walking and cycling and facilitates social distancing.
