Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To consider the comments received following the formal advertisement of a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) relating to ‘No Waiting Monday – Friday 8am-9am and 3pm-4pm’ waiting restrictions on Kennet Gardens, Bradford on Avon, and to recommend an appropriate way forward.



I approve that:


(i) A restriction of ‘No Waiting Monday-Friday 8am-9am and 3pm-4pm’ be implemented.


(ii) The objectors be informed accordingly.


This decision was published on 3 March 2021 and will come into force on 11 March 2021.

Reasons for the decision:

The restrictions are intended to improve highway safety by reducing the potential for conflict with pedestrians accessing the school through the prevention of parking and associated turning movements of vehicles on Kennet Gardens during school start and finish times.


The proposals will also be in accordance with both Priority 2 and Priority 4 of the Council’s Business Plan.


Alternative options considered:



(i)             Implement the restrictions as advertised.


(ii)            Abandon the proposals.

·       Fitzmaurice Primary School, as part of their Taking Action on School Journeys request.


·       The elected Wiltshire Council Member representing Bradford on Avon South through the statutory TRO consultation process.

·       Emergency services through the statutory TRO consultation process.


The proposal was subject to a formal advertisement between 20 November and 14 December 2020.  During the advertisement period, a total of two items of comment were received, both of which were objections.  This report considers the comments made in relation to the proposed restrictions.
