The Council has been contacted by residents to address issues of road safety and obstructive parking on Derbyshire Lane at its junction with the A56 Chester Road, Stretford. Vehicles parking on both sides of the road and footway, often blocking pedestrian access. The parking also creates a bottleneck and damage is often caused to parked vehicles.
It is therefore proposed to introduce a length of ‘No Waiting Mon-Sat 8am–6pm’ restriction on the north side of Derbyshire Lane to deter parking, to improve pedestrian access and visibility and road safety for all road users. The short length of existing ‘No Waiting At Any Time and No
Loading Mon-Sat 7.30am-9.30am and 4pm-6.30pm’ restrictions that are missing from the southwest corner of the junction are to be reinstated.
The proposals, as shown on drawing E9207-001 were formally advertised on 16 November 2022 and received 1 objection. Having considered the objection received, approval is sought to introduce the restrictions as advertised, in accordance with drawing E9207-001.
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 implement the Order, as advertised and detailed in the schedule contained within the report, and as shown on drawing number E9207-001.
3) That the objectors be informed of the decision made.
To introduce No Waiting Monday-Saturday 8.00 a.m. – 6.00 p.m. restriction to manage congestion to improve traffic flow and ensure that vehicles are parked in a safe manner without causing any restrictions vehicles and pedestrians.
This set of proposals takes into account the comments received to maintain the safety and access objectives of the proposal. The option to do nothing is not recommended as this would mean there would be no management of the parking to address safety and to allow improved pedestrian access and visibility for all road users.
