(Report of Director of Street Scene, Leisure and Technical Services)


The report covered the investigation and informal consultation stage of the parking restriction proposals contained in Phase 14 of the Parking Action Plan and sought approval to proceed to formal consultation. 


Following the meeting of the Joint Transportation Board on the 5 June 2023, investigations into proposed parking changes had been undertaken at 30 sites across the Borough. A list of these sites, the issues raised and a recommendation for each was attached at Annex 1 to the report.  A location summary and a more detailed response rate, analysis and recommendation was attached at Annex 2. 


The report also considered a Satisfaction Survey relating to new restrictions introduced in Shakespeare Road, Tonbridge (between Burns Crescent and Scott Road).  It was highlighted that if changes were made to remove the double yellow line restrictions, these could be made without invalidating the current Traffic Regulation Order.


Following consideration by the Joint Transportation Board, the Cabinet Member for Transformation and Infrastructure resolved that:


(1)        the recommendations for each location for Phase 14, shown in Annex 1 to the report, be adopted and where appropriate the proposals be taken forward to formal consultation.  Furthermore, Members views were sought on West Street, Wrotham and agreed that this be taken forward to formal consultation; and


(2)        following consideration of the views of the Joint Transportation Board and local Members, the double yellow lines on Shakespeare Road (between Burns Crescent and Scott Road) be removed.

Reasons for the decision:

As set out in the report submitted to the Joint Transportation Board of 18 September 2023.
