Proposals to introduce ‘school keep clear’ markings (No stopping, Monday – Friday, 8am – 5pm) on Wood Lane, Partington; at its junction with Myrtle Road, were formally advertised on 15th March 2019. Following a 21-day statutory consultation with nearby frontages, a single response was received in objection to the proposals. Having considered the objection, the Council proposes to introduce the ‘school keep clear’ restrictions at the above-mentioned location as advertised. The proposals are shown on drawing E9033-01-F and are described in Schedule 1 to the report.


1)     That the results of the consultation be noted.


2)     That following careful consideration of the objection and comments received, authorisation be given to make and introduce the Traffic Regulation Order, as advertised and detailed in Schedule 1 to the report and shown on drawing E9033-01-F, as soon as is practicable.  


3)     That the objector be notified of the Council’s decision. 

Reasons for the decision:

To enable the necessary parking restrictions to be introduced and enforced in the interests of highway safety and to discourage obstruction of the highway.

Alternative options considered:

Leaving out the proposed restrictions to which objections have been raised would be detrimental to highway safety and would also lead to highway obstruction issues.
