Norton Lane: Report on the objection to the proposed advertised Traffic Regulation Order for Double Yellow Lines

Decision status: Recommendations Approved


This report describes the objections to the proposed measures to restrict inappropriate parking on Norton Lane, Meadowhead, through the introduction of double yellow line parking restrictions.


Having considered the representations received and having determined that the reasons to support the proposals outweigh any unresolved objections, it is agreed that:


(a) the Traffic Regulation Order in respect of Norton Lane/Little Norton Lane, Norton, as detailed in the report, is made in accordance with the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984;


(b) the associated double yellow lines be introduced, as shown in Appendix A of the report; and


(c) the objectors be informed accordingly.

Reasons for the decision:

The proposed measures will address obstructive parking.  This will improve access and visibility for all road users, in particular pedestrians using the nearby controlled crossing on Bochum Parkway.

Alternative options considered:

The only alternative is to not introduce any parking restrictions at this location. This is not considered to be an acceptable option. No other alternatives to parking restrictions have been considered.
