(Report of Director of Street Scene, Leisure and Technical Services)
Members received an update on the outcome of the recent formal consultation on a parking review for Kings Hill. A large number of responses had been received and these were detailed in the report.
Careful consideration was given to the level of need within the community to manage and regulate parking. Members also had regard to the strength of feeling set out in the consultation responses. However, it was recognised that the Borough Council’s parking review would be unable to address the historic planning issues in the area. It was also recognised that the proposals were based on the principles of the Highway Code and were intended to maintain access through the estate in a safe manner for residents, public transport providers and emergency services.
Following consideration by the Joint Transportation Board, the Cabinet Member for Technical and Waste Services resolved that:
(1) the significant number of formal consultation responses received be noted; and
(2) in principle, the objections received should be set aside and the proposed changes, as set out in the Traffic Regulation Order (attached at Annex 2), be supported, with implementation delayed to allow further consideration of proposals for yellow lines in relation to Milton Lane and Hazen Road.
