Decision details

HSSF-01-24 - Devizes Road, Hilperton - Prohibition of Motor Vehicles and Waiting at Any Time

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Highways, Street Scene, and Flooding

Decision status: Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To consider the comments received following the formal advertisement of proposed ‘Prohibition of Motor Vehicles’ and ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ at Devizes Road, Hilperton as part of an active travel scheme for the wider Hilperton area.


I approve that:


(i)       The current proposals be implemented as advertised.


(ii)       The objectors be advised accordingly.



This decision was published on 8 April 2024 and will come into force on 16 April 2024.           

Reasons for the decision:

It is proposed to implement the proposed restriction as advertised. Removal of through traffic through the introduction of a ‘Prohibition of Motor Vehicles’ creating a modal filter (and including the proposed ‘No Waiting at Any Time) will ensure this route is lightly trafficked, improving the environment for cyclists and pedestrians and encouraging greater uptake of sustainable modes of travel. This, in turn, has a wider benefit on public health and the environment.

Alternative options considered:



(i)             Implement the proposals as advertised.


(ii)            Abandon the proposals.


Divisions Affected: Hilperton;

  • The elected Hilperton Parish Council Members for all Wards through the statutory TRO consultation process.
