Decision details

Lock Lane, Partington - Proposed Changes to Traffic Calming

Decision Maker: Corporate Director Place

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


A planning application has been approved for the construction of new dwellings and a new junction (Birchwood Drive) off Lock Lane.

Due to the proximity of the new junction to the existing junction at Bailey Lane there is a condition within the approved planning consent which requires a raised table to be provided at the junction of Lock Lane, Bailey Lane and Birchwood Close.


The implementation of the raised table is to control speeds and traffic movements at this junction. The raised table removes the need for the existing speed humps either side of the raised table and these are to be removed as part of the proposed scheme.


1)     That authorisation be given to advertise the intention to amend the traffic calming scheme on Lock Lane as detailed on the attached schedule to the report and that, if no objections are maintained, the amended traffic calming scheme be implemented as soon as is practicable.


2)     That a consultation be carried out with nearby residents.


3)     That any objections maintained be reported back for consideration.

Reasons for the decision:

It is recommended that, in the interests of road safety, approval is given to introduce the traffic calming scheme shown on drawing MLB11-405-P3 and described in the Schedules to the report.

Alternative options considered:
