Proposed Amendment to the Borough of Trafford (Parking Places) (Charges) Order 2001 and the Borough of Trafford (Off-Street Car Parks) Order 2001 - Various Changes

Decision Maker: Executive Member for Environmental and Regulatory Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

The Council has provided low cost parking across the borough to help maintain a high level of visitors and local support to businesses and other facilities. A review of the current charges has been undertaken and the Council has put forward a proposed revision of tariffs that it feels will still encourage visitor numbers and support local service users.

Decision:

 

(1)       That authorisation be given to advertise the intention to amend the Borough of Trafford (Parking Places) (Charges) Order 2001, as amended, as detailed in the report and that, if no objections are maintained, the order be made, in whole or in part, and implemented, as soon as is practicable.

 

(2)       That authorisation be given to advertise the intention to amend the Borough of Trafford (Off-Street Car Parks) Order 2001, as amended, as detailed in the report and that, if no objections are maintained, the order be made, in whole or in part, and implemented, as soon as is practicable.

 

(3)       That the 2020 Notice and proposals be formally withdrawn and the objector be notified accordingly.

 

(4)       That any objections to the changes be reported back for consideration.

Reasons for the decision:

To enable the following proposals to be introduced:

 

It is proposed to revise the existing on-street and off-street parking charges, as detailed in this report, which requires an amendment to the Borough of Trafford (Parking Places)(Charges Order) 2001.

 

It is  proposed to introduce charges in Thorley Lane, Timperley car park, amending it from a currently free car park for 2 hours to a chargeable car park which requires an amendment to the Borough of Trafford (Off-Street Car Parks) Order 2001.

 

It is proposed to withdraw the 2020 Notice and, in order to remedy the administrative error referred to above, it is proposed to re-advertise the proposals in the 2017 approved report, as itemised within the schedules to the report.

Alternative options considered:

Following a public consultation and Budget Council meeting in February 2021, to approve the Fees and Charges, no other options have been proposed for consideration to date.
