A number of complaints had been received concerning access issues and road safety caused by vehicles being parked in an obstructive manner on Kenmore Drive and at its junction with Green Lane.
Due to the concerns, the Council proposed to introduce junction protection in the form of double yellow lines around the junction with Kenmore Drive and Green Lane and on the east side of Green Lane between Kenmore Drive and the garden centre entrance, in order to restrict parking at all times. It was also proposed to introduce a single yellow line restriction on one side of Kenmore Drive (north side) that would restrict parking between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Following the informal consultation, it is also proposed to introduce the single yellow line on parts of Green Lane.
The proposals, as shown on drawing CO00201302-02 Rev D, were formally advertised on 12 March 2020 and received 3 objections and 1 other representation.
1) That the results of the consultation and objections received be noted.
2) That following careful consideration of the objections and comments received, authorisation be given to make and introduce the Traffic Regulation Order, as advertised as detailed in Schedule 1 and as shown on drawing CO00201302-02 Rev D within the report, as soon as is practicable.
3) That the objectors be informed of the decision made.
To enable the necessary parking restrictions to be introduced and enforced, to enhance resident amenity, in the interests of highway safety and to discourage obstruction of the highway.
The proposals could be implemented as advertised, however, it was considered that the amended scheme would help with those concerns by residents that parking availability was being lost whilst maintaining safety at the junctions.
