Decision details

Grove Lane, Hale - Proposed Waiting Restrictions: Consideration of Objections

Decision Maker: Executive Member for Environment, Air Quality and Climate Change

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


A number of requests have been received from local ward councillors and residents to investigate the parking that takes place along Grove Lane in Hale. These requests concern visibility, pedestrian safety and access to properties.


It is proposed to introduce waiting restrictions on the junctions of Grove Lane with Lomond Avenue, Hermitage Road, Highfield Road, Delahays Road along with formalising the bus stops along Grove Lane.


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 waiting restrictions scheme with minor modifications, as shown on drawing number E9008-4 Rev A, and in the schedule contained within the report.


3)     That the objectors be informed of the decision made.

Reasons for the decision:

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.

Alternative options considered:

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.
