Issue details

The York Parking, Stopping and Waiting (Amendment) (No 14/58) Queen Street, York – Traffic Order 2023

Purpose of Report: To address the safety implications of amending or upholding a Traffic Regulation Order permitting residents’ parking in front of terraced cottages on Queen Street, York. As a feature of the York Station Gateway scheme, the current proposal is to remove residents’ parking on safety grounds to permit the installation of segregated cycle lanes and a wider pedestrian footway.

An equal number of new residents’ parking spaces will be re-provided in the same Resident’s Parking Zone R15SC on Toft Green, York. Owing to the extended walking distance to Toft Green, the project team is investigating alternative short and long term parking arrangements to compensate residents for the proposed removal of residents parking to the front of their properties.

The Executive Member will be asked to decide on the amendments to the Queen Street stopping and waiting (amendment) (no 14/58) Traffic Order 2023 regarding the proposal to remove parking on Queen Street, York on safety grounds in accordance with City of York Planning Permission Ref. 19/00535/FULM.
