Decision details

Tower Street: Consideration of Objection received to recently advertised proposal to add disabled parking space to the Traffic Regulation Order to enable enforcement

Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Economy and Place

Decision status: Decision Made

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Acting Director of City and Environmental Services agreed to implement as advertised for the disabled parking area and advertise a “loading bay” outside the Hilton Hotel to provide an area for deliveries and coaches outside the hotel and prevent long term parking causing a negative impact in this area (as shown on plan at Annex A).

Options Considered:

A. Implement as advertised (recommended action) and advertise a loading bay as shown on plan at Annex A.

B. Take no further action and the space remains advisory, this is not recommended because the space is abused by long-term parking by commuters and will continue to have a negative impact on the Hilton Hotel.

C. Remove the disabled parking bay and replace with no waiting at any time restrictions (double yellow lines). This is not recommended as blue badge holders will still be able to park (for 3 hours) which creates problems for the adjacent Hilton Hotel.

Options Rejected:

Options B and C were rejected.
