High Elm Road Area, Hale Barns - Proposed Waiting Restrictions: Consideration of Objections

The Council had been contacted by residents and ward members regarding inconsiderate parking in the High Elm Road area of Hale Barns. A subsequent informal consultation also raised similar issues. 


Residents mentioned that there are issues concerned with parking from people using Manchester Airport, who often leave their vehicles for long periods of time close to the junctions of High Elm Road/Hale Road and High Elm Road/Warren Drive. This parking is restricting visibility for vehicles negotiating these junctions which compromises road safety.  


Parking predominantly at the opening and closing times of Elmridge Primary School close to the junctions of High Elm Road/Elmridge Drive and Elmridge Drive/Wilton Drive is restricting access and visibility for pedestrians and vehicles, which compromises road safety for both pedestrians and vehicles.


The proposals, as shown on drawing E9086-F were formally advertised on 8 October 2020 and received 19 objections and 1 other representation.


Having considered the objections received, approval is sought to introduce the restrictions as advertised in accordance with drawing E9086-F.
