Minutes:

The Executive Member received the report to consider the representations received, in support and objection, to advertised proposals to amend the Traffic Regulation Order (TRO)

 

The options available for each item were:

 

a)   Implement as advertised

b)   Uphold the objections and take no further action

c)   Uphold the objections in part and implement a lesser restriction that advertised

 

Representations were heard from the following registered speakers on the issues mentioned below:

 

Peter Smith, local resident to the Hull Road Ward spoke about Newland Park Drive/Newland Park Close at Hull Road Ward (Annex D). This area is subject to heavy parking during University terms.  The junction has very little or no visibility.  He requested that the  proposed restrictions be extended.  He also requested that restrictions on the west side of Newland Park Close be extended to the boundary line of Number 6 Newland Park Close as this was another dangerous part of the junction.

 

In response to Mr Smith’s concerns regarding accuracy of measurements the Traffic Project Officer confirmed that all measurements had been checked and that the Council’s legal team could confirm this.   

 

The Executive Member was keen to implement the scheme as advertised and to continue to monitor the area for the concerns raised by Mr Smith, so as to avoid any delay in the implementation of this scheme. 

 

Cllr Pavlovic, Ward Member for Hull Road, spoke on both Newland Park Drive/ Newland Park Close and Carlton Avenue/ Hull Road junction, in support of the recommended option commenting that the proposed restrictions were urgently required and would need to be monitored to see if the restrictions extend as far as they should to address the concerns raised. 

 

On Carlton Avenue/ Hull Road junction, the officer report had stated that no comments had been received from Councillors Pavlovic and Norman, however both had submitted comments.

 

Resolved: 

 

(i)           That the recommended approach for each request as identified in Annexes A to G be approved with the exception of A2.

(ii)         Regarding annex A2, that option 2 of the officer’s report, to uphold the objections and take no further action,  be taken forward, as requested by Ward Councillors and residents.

 

Reason:    To ensure that appropriate changes are made to

traffic restrictions to address concerns raised.
