Decision:

Resolved:

 

                      i.         The Executive Member is asked to confirm the decision to make the Traffic Regulation Order needed to introduce the Residents’ Priority Parking scheme set out in the report but including all homes on Newland Park Drive.

 

Reason:     To positively respond to comments received from local

residents and to utilise the further funding available to establish which areas (of streets) would be considered to benefit from the introduction of ResPark controls and to implement those measures.

Minutes:

The Executive Member considered the report and noted that under the section 106 agreement with the University of York the first permit for households included within the Residents Parking Scheme. It was confirmed that there would be short stay parking for shops on Yarbrough Way.

 

Consideration was given to including all of Newland Park Drive. Officers confirmed that consultation on the street had seen 29 in favour and 14 against residents parking, however, 13 of the against were on the east side of the road and therefore the east side had not been included. The Executive Member considered the residents petition that had been submitted as a written representation to the meeting, and he agreed that if not included, the east side of Newland Park Drive would likely become a magnet to traffic looking to park in the area. Therefore confirmed that all of Newland Park Drive should be included within the Residents Parking Scheme.
