Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report reviewing Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) requests from 2018.  Approval was requested to advertise the amendments to the TRO required to introduce the restrictions detailed in Annexes A to U. In addition, if there were no objections raised with regard to the above proposals, approval was requested to implement the amendments to the TRO as set out in the officer’s report.  Approval was also requested for confirming the funding from the S.106 agreement for permits for a residents parking scheme close to the new Monks Cross stadium (Annex W).

 

The following options were available:

 

A.      Approve the officers recommendation for proposals to be advertised, or not, for each location.

B.      Defer the proposal for further information to be brought back to a subsequent Decision meeting.

C.      Amend the proposal depending on circumstances.

 

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

 

Cllr Fenton, Ward Councillor for Dringhouses and Woodthorpe – expressed concerns about congestion causing access problems for buses and for residents of properties off North Lane.

 

Cllr Doughty, Ward Councillor for Strensall spoke about the parking issues associated with collection of pupils from after school clubs at Robert Wilkinson School.  He considered that any extension to double yellow lines should be subject to results of consultation directly affected and those nearby

 

Councillor Pavlovic, Ward Councillor for Hull Road expressed concern regarding the proposed restrictions in front of the play park on the south side of the carriageway on Deramore Drive as he did not want to discourage families from using the park.

 

Emilie Smeaton, local resident in Robin Grove, Holgate Ward,  spoke in support of the recommended option for parking restrictions as there had been so much tension in this area due to inconsiderate parking mainly by non-residents.
