Decision details

HTW-18-22 - Intention - Waiting Restrictions on Whitehill - Bradford on Avon

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Transport, Waste, Street Scene and Flooding

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To consider the comments received following the statutory consultation relating to a prohibition of entry order and introduction of ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ restrictions on Whitehill, Bradford on Avon, as put forward by Bradford on Avon Local Highway and Footway Improvement Group and to recommend an appropriate way forward.

Decision:

Following consultation with officers I give notice that I intend to make the decision to implement the ‘Prohibition of No Entry’ with amended waiting restrictions as shown in Appendix 4. If you would like to make any representations to me on this issue please do so by 1 August 2022.

Reasons for the decision:

The proposal is intended to improve safety on Whitehill by reducing through traffic. In light of the comments received during consultation, it is recommended that the Prohibition of No Entry (except for cycles) be implemented along with the proposed waiting restrictions opposite properties 25a/25b. The revised waiting restrictions are shown in Appendix 4

 

It is proposed that the waiting restrictions at the top of Whitehill be omitted at this time to mitigate concerns regarding loss of parking. Turning in this area was not highlighted as an issue during the temporary implementation of the No Entry prohibition in 2020/21and residents have expressed concerns regarding the impact of reduced parking provision in this area. If issues arise in relation to vehicle turning movements following implementation, this may be raised with the Local Highway and Footway Improvement Group and the waiting restriction proposal may be revisited.

 

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

 

Alternative options considered:

To:

 

(i)             Progress implementation of the proposals as advertised.

 

(ii)            To implement the ‘Prohibition of No Entry’ with amended waiting restrictions.

 

(iii)          To abandon the proposal.
