Decision:

Resolved:

 

To approve the following:

 

(i)           Option 3: to include the addition of Bishopthorpe Road (part) and Rectory Gardens to the waiting list and to combine the consultation of this with the consultation for Balmoral Terrace which is already on the waiting list.

 

Reason: Because this will respond to the residents’ concerns over

a wider area in a more timely fashion.

 

(ii)         Option 3: to include the addition of Kilburn Road to the residents parking waiting list and to consider the extent of the potential consultation area when it reaches the top of the list.

 

Reason: Because this will respond to residents’ concerns in the

order they are raised and can be progressed depending on funding available each year.

 

(iii)        Option 3: to include the addition of Wellington/ Gordon/Willis/Wolsey Streets to the residents parking waiting list and to consider the extent of the potential consultation area when it reaches the top of the list.

 

Reason: Because this will respond to residents’ concerns in the

order they are raised and can be progressed depending on funding available each year.

 

(iv)        Option 2: advertising extending the existing zones that surround Longfield Terrace and lower Ebor Street (two small areas) on the same terms as the existing schemes.

 

Reason: Because these small areas are entirely within existing

zones and the extension to those zones will be on the basis of the existing restrictions and this has the potential to resolve this matter is a more timely fashion.

 

(v)         Option 3: the addition of the Revival Estate to the residents parking waiting list.

 

Reason: Because this will respond to residents’ concerns in the

order they are raised and can be progressed depending on funding available each year.

Minutes:

The Executive Member for Transport considered a report documenting seven resident parking petitions. 

 

It was reported that a staff resource and additional funding of £30k had been made available to progress the backlog of resident parking requests. 

 

Officers explained that where several requests in one area had been received, they would be considered together to ensure that these applications were processed swiftly. 

 

Officers confirmed that parking requests for areas such as Longfield Terrace and Lower Ebor Street, that were surrounded by controlled parking zones would be processed with the same conditions as the area surrounding them.  This would mean that these proposals could go straight to advert without having the prior consultation period, which would speed up the processing of these applications.

 

The Executive Member noted that the Fulford Cross application had been received at the same time as the Danesmead Estate application which was due for implemented this month.  Fulford Cross had been delayed in relation to an adopted highway concern.  Now that this concern had been resolved it was expected that the Fullford Cross application would be progressed as soon as possible.
