Reinstatement of Coppergate Traffic Restrictions - Approval to Advertise
Resolved: That the Executive approve:
(i) The advertising of a revised Traffic Regulation Order, as set out in Option 2 of the report. The revised TRO will seek to:
· change the exemption to the Coppergate (Local Bus Priority) TRO from “except taxis and Private Hire vehicles” to “except permit holders”, and to define taxi and private hire vehicle operators as “permit holders”
· change the hours of operation to 8am to 6pm (as approved previously)
· tidy drafting to resolve previous criticisms from the Traffic Penalty Tribunal.
(ii) An extended consultation process as outlined in paragraphs 12 and 13 of the report.
Reason: (i) To enable the introduction of the scheme in a manner that is compliant with the traffic signing regulations and accurately conveys the meaning of the TRO.
(ii) To facilitate greater participation in the consultation process for this scheme in response to the previous significant interest and provide for wider understanding of the proposal for key stakeholders.
