To report the consultation results, in response to a proposal to extend R20 Fishergate Residents Parking Zone, and determine what action is appropriate.
i. That Kexby Avenue which had been considered as part of the University Residential Parking Scheme be consulted on with residents again following a petition from residents;
ii. That approval be given to advertise an amendment to the York Parking, Stopping and Waiting Traffic Regulation Order to introduce Residents’ Priority Parking for Kilburn Road, Alma Terrace, and Alma Grove;
iii. Officers to consider and consult with the Executive Member whether Kilburn Road, Alma Terrace, and Alma Grove should be added to the R20 Residential Parking Scheme or to another scheme due to geographical locations of R20 to the location of the additional streets.

This report updates the Executive Member on the results of a SID (Speed Indicator Device) Trial which was approved in 2019.
i. Approved Option 2 in the report: to change the VAS Policy to include Speed Indicator Devices as an alternative sign, which provide feedback to drivers as follows:
· A vehicle’s speed and thank you message for vehicles travelling at or below the posted speed limit.
· The speed limit roundel and a slowdown message for vehicles exceeding the speed limit.
All VAS/SID sites must still meet the criteria established in the existing policy. The change to the policy would only be applied to new sites or existing
sites where replacement is required due to failure, unless external funding is available.
Reason: To provide an alternative sign type at VAS sites as requested by many Ward and Parish Councillors.
