Westwick Crescent and Westwick Road: Objection to Proposed Waiting Restrictions

09/03/2017 - Westwick Crescent and Westwick Road: Objection to Proposed Waiting Restrictions


The Executive Director, Place submitted a report describing measures to restrict parking at the junction of Westwick Crescent and Westwick Road, through the introduction of double yellow line parking restrictions. The introduction of time-limited waiting elsewhere on Westwick Crescent will reduce the impact of the restrictions by increasing the turnover of parking spaces. The report also set out officers’ responses to objections received and sought a decision from the Cabinet Member for Infrastructure and Transport.









having considered the responses to the consultation it is recommended that the reasons set out in this report outweigh any unresolved objections and that the revised waiting restrictions be implemented and the Traffic Regulation Order be made in accordance with the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984;






introduce associated traffic signing; and






the objectors be informed accordingly.





Reasons for Decision




The proposed measures will address inconsiderate and illegal parking practices which will improve safety at a junction for pedestrians and motorists by removing parking that blocks sight lines.  They will also improve the overall parking experience at this location by replacing single yellow lines, which get ignored, with double yellow lines and by introducing time limited waiting to optimise the availability of parking spaces.




Alternatives Considered and Rejected




The only alternative, as proposed by the objectors, is not to 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.




Any Interest Declared or Dispensation Granted








Reason for Exemption if Public/Press Excluded During Consideration








Respective Director Responsible for Implementation




Laraine Manley, Executive Director, Place




Relevant Scrutiny and Policy Development Committee If Decision Called In
