Bakers Bottom & Craven Vale resident parking scheme consultation

Report of the Executive Director of Environment, Development & Housing (copy attached).

 

Decision:

1)         That the Committee approves:

 

(a)  That an extension of the Area U resident parking scheme be considered within the Bakers Bottom area and that this proposal be progressed to the final design with the Traffic Order advertised to allow further comment.

 

(b)  That no extension of a resident parking scheme takes place in the Craven Vale area.

 

(c)  That a prohibition of verge parking on the east side of Queensway is advertised alongside any double yellow lines in  the Craven Vale area which would be considered in appropriate locations.

 

Minutes:

19.1     The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director of Environment, Development & Housing that set out the results of the recent consultation undertaken for the proposed extension to the Area U residents parking scheme and requested approval to proceed to the final design stage and publication of the necessary traffic order.

 

19.2     In reference to recommendation 2.1 (c), Councillor Mitchell stated that verge parking was not the issue in this area rather overrunning of the verge and she was not sure a prohibition would resolve the problem.

 

19.3     The Parking Infrastructure Manager stated that there was no type of restriction to cover overrunning of verges but he would discuss the issue with the council’s transport and traffic partners.

 

19.4     Councillor Mitchell asked if bollards could be put in place to prevent overrunning.

 

19.5     The Parking Infrastructure Manager stated that bollards were expensive at £60 each and would have to be placed on a long stretch and therefore such measures would likely be beyond the available budget.

 

19.6     Councillor Mitchell clarified that a contribution to installing bollards may be forthcoming from the local tenants association.

 

19.7     The Parking Infrastructure Manager stated that he would discuss the issue with residents and the association during the TRO process.

 

19.8     RESOLVED-

 

1)         That the Committee approves:

 

(a)  That an extension of the Area U resident parking scheme be considered within the Bakers Bottom area and that this proposal be progressed to the final design with the Traffic Order advertised to allow further comment.

 

(b)  That no extension of a resident parking scheme takes place in the Craven Vale area.

 

(c)  That a prohibition of verge parking on the east side of Queensway is advertised alongside any double yellow lines in  the Craven Vale area which would be considered in appropriate locations.
