Decision:

Resolved:

 

                      i.         Implement junction protection on Tranby Avenue at it junction with Hull Road and Cavendish Grove with its junction with Tranby Avenue and explore possibility of restrictions to maintain safety at the bus stop on street.

 

Reason:     The Junction protection will increase safety at these

locations and also allow York Council Civil Enforcement Officers the ability to enforce obstructive parking near the junctions, which was the original complaint. This will also respect the views of the

residents and not remove their ability to park in the area if required.

 

                     ii.         is recommended that approval be given to implement as proposed for the Moore Avenue/Osbaldwick Lane Junction.

 

Reason:     The introduction of restrictions at this location will provide clearer sight lines for pedestrians using the tactile crossing while crossing this junction and improve pedestrian safety.

Minutes:

Officers introduced the report noting that lesser restrictions were proposed to address safety concerns raised by residents. It was noted that residents had highlighted parking issues related to university parking in the area. Officers confirmed that long term parking in the area suggested that some university parking was taking place in the area, however, surveys had shown that university car parks were well used and the University of York discouraged students from being cars. Officers confirmed that residents were not in support of a priority residents parking scheme.

 

The Executive Member noted that he did not wish to move university parking issues around the city. He acknowledged the Council working with the University to encourage less car usage by staff and students and appropriate parking. Considering the safety concerns highlighted in the report, the Executive Member agreed to support the introduction of the lesser restrictions but using restrictions to number 1 Tranby Avenue as suggested by Cllr Rowley in public participation.
