Various Roads - Proposed Restriction of Waiting and No Waiting at Any Time Restrictions: Consideration of Objections

Decision Maker: Executive Member for Highways, Environmental, and Traded Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

One Trafford Partnership has received a number of complaints in recent years with regards to missed bin collections due to localised parking issues across Trafford. This has led to particular attention being paid to addressing such issues by the production of a priority list of sites or ‘hot spots’ where continual complaints are received with regards to this issue.

 

As a result, in collaboration with the OneTrafford Waste Management Team, seven sites have been identified for prioritisation of parking restrictions.

The proposal seeks to introduce both ‘Restriction of Waiting’ and ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ measures in the form of yellow lines to deter the reported parking issues and to improve accessibility for refuse collection vehicles along with more generalised access for pedestrians and motorists alike.

 

The formal advertisement of the proposals was undertaken on 10 May 2023 for three weeks where 18 objections and 4 representations containing other comments and/or support were received. Letters were delivered to some 153 householders across the 7 sites.

 

Having considered the representations received, approval is sought to introduce the scheme with minor amendments.

Decision:

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 with minor modifications, as detailed in the Schedules within the report, and as shown on drawing numbers E9263-01 Rev 1, E9263-02, E9263-03 Rev 1, E9263-04, E9263-05 Rev 1, E9263-06 Rev A and E9263-07 as soon as is practicable.

 

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

Reasons for the decision:

To introduce waiting restrictions, in the interests of highway safety and to discourage obstruction of the highway.

Alternative options considered:

Not progressing the proposals would be detrimental to road safety and access. Due consideration has been given to reducing the lengths of restrictions and/or reducing the timings of the restrictions. An explanation of the outcome of these considerations is given in the report.

Interests and Nature of Interests Declared:

None.
