Decision details

ResPark for the area around the University of York

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:

Purpose of Report:  To seek approval to consult with residents regarding the expansion of the existing residents’ parking in the area University of York to suit the proposed strategy for extending the coverage of residents parking in the area around the University of York, for which the University of York has agreed, in principal, to fund its implementation (including consultation with residents) and administrative costs for the issue of permits and the operation of the enforcement hotline.

The Executive Member will be asked to approve the officer recommendations as outlined in the report.

Decision:

Resolved:

 

(i)           That option 1b be approved and the residents’ parking scheme, either as an extension to the R39 Zone or as an additional zone based on the R39 Zone, be progressed directly to the Traffic Regulation Order consultation stage, with the exemption of the unadopted streets and retail areas, where officers will further consult, to enable the scheme to meet the needs of the community, the results of which will be reported back to an Executive Member for Transport Decision Session.

 

(ii)         That the scheme be progressed on the basis that the University of York would fund the implementation process, the issue of permits and operation of the enforcement hotline, up to a maximum level of funding of £42,100.

 

(iii)        That the Assistant Director of Transport, Highways and Environment and the Executive Member for Transport consult on the zone areas and notifications to be issued.

 

Reasons: After several years of negotiation the University of York (UoY) has agreed, in principle, to fund the implementation (including public consultation) of extending the existing residents parking zone R39 to incorporate on-street parking survey zones 5-8 and fund the issue of permits and operation of the enforcement hotline, up to a maximum level of funding of £42,100, from this point in time onwards until 15 years after the first occupancy of the Site (i.e. until 30 September 2024 as Goodricke College was first constructed and occupied in September 2009).

 

Failure to approve this option would result in further protracted negotiation with the UoY pertaining to the impact of UoY related parking on residential streets, the need for mitigation and the mitigation measures required, which is likely to lead to no mitigation being put in place prior to the time limiting period of 15 years after the first occupancy of the site in which to implement mitigation measures expiring.
