Decision details

School Keep Clear Review - Pye Bank CE NIJ School

Decision Maker: Highway Cabinet Member Decision Session

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Decision required on traffic regulation Order in respect of objection received from resident of Nottingham Street.



The Executive Director, Place submitted a report requesting a decision be made on Traffic Regulation Order Nottingham Street (Pye Bank NIJ  School) in respect of an objection received.









having considered the responses to the TRO consultation the Cabinet Member believes the reasons set out in the report, for making the TRO,  outweigh any unresolved objections and that the appropriate Order be made in accordance with the advertised proposal - except for one aspect.  The length of double yellow lines outside 95 97 99 Nottingham Street should be reduced in length in order to preserve parking in the recessed area.   The suggested length, on the western side of the school gate is 5.6 metres;






the objectors be informed accordingly; and






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





Reasons for Decision




Officers recommend that the parking restrictions are implemented as advertised with the proviso that the double yellow lines, outside 95 97 99 Nottingham Street, should be reduced in length.  Residents would still be able to park vehicles in the recessed parking area.  This parking has no significant implication for the comfort and safety of pedestrians on the school journey.




If the new parking restrictions are observed, by degree, the immediate environment outside the school will be made safer and more pleasant. 




One objection (a resident of Nottingham Street) has been made 

to the proposals.  A reduction in the length of parking restriction, on the residential side, will contribute to preserving more on street parking for Nottingham Street.




It is unlikely that, in terms of parking restrictions, Pye Bank School would

be a priority for the Authority’s scrutiny in the short or medium term.  The    current proposal may offer the best opportunity for significant improvement.




Alternatives Considered and Rejected




There is the possibility of not implementing parking restrictions at all for the roads surrounding the Pye Bank (NIJ) School.




On Nottingham Street the above course of action would mean that parking on the junctions would continue as would footway parking in the immediate area in front of the school entrance.




Any Interest Declared or Dispensation Granted








Reason for Exemption if Public/Press Excluded During Consideration








Respective Director Responsible for Implementation




Acting Executive Director, Place




Relevant Scrutiny and Policy Development Committee If Decision Called In
