School Keep Clear Review - Oughtibridge School

Decision Maker: Highway Cabinet Member Decision Session

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

Decision required on Traffic Regulation Order for Naylor Road (Oughtibridge School).

 

Decision:

6.1

The Executive Director, Place submitted a report requesting a decision be made on Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) Naylor Road (Oughtibridge School) in respect of objections received

 

 

6.2

RESOLVED: That:-

 

 

 

(a)

in judgement, having considered responses to the TRO consultation

the reasons for making the TRO outweigh the objections.  Therefore the appropriate Order be made in accordance with the advertised proposal for Oughtibridge School (Naylor Road);

 

 

 

 

(b)

the objectors be informed accordingly; and

 

 

 

 

(c)

the physical work be undertaken in financial year 2017/8 subject to the overall funding for the programme not being exceeded.

 

 

 

6.3

Reasons for Decision

 

 

6.3.1

Officers recommend that the parking restrictions are implemented as advertised.  The opportunity to make these types of improvements through a TRO process is unlikely to present itself any time in the near future. It is unlikely that, in terms of provision of parking restrictions, Naylor Road would be a priority for the Authority’s scrutiny in the short or medium terms.

 

 

6.3.2

If the new parking restrictions are observed, by degree, the immediate environment outside the school will be made safer and more pleasant.  Removal of parking on the tight bend, at Naylor Road, will bring both road safety and traffic management benefits. Parking vehicles so close to the tight bend could be viewed as injudicious and not in compliance with guidance contained in the Highway Code.

 

 

6.3.3

No objections or comments have been made by residents with properties    adjacent to the proposed markings.

 

 

6.4

Alternatives Considered and Rejected

 

 

6.4.1

At Naylor Road (Oughtibridge School) there is the possibility of not addressing the issue of the enforcement status of the existing parking restrictions.  In addition the proposal for double yellow lines, at the tight bend, could be discounted.  The prospect of facilitating parking directly outside the school gate runs contrary to the objectives of the school keep clear initiative.

 

 

6.5

Any Interest Declared or Dispensation Granted

 

 

 

None

 

 

6.6

Reason for Exemption if Public/Press Excluded During Consideration

 

 

 

None

 

 

6.7

Respective Director Responsible for Implementation

 

 

 

Acting Executive Director, Place

 

 

6.8

Relevant Scrutiny and Policy Development Committee If Decision Called In

 

 

 

Economic and Environmental Wellbeing
