Is subject to call in?: No
Pursuant to Minute 534 of the meeting of the Council held on 13th December 2018, the Cabinet Committee received a report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place) concerning the receipt of a petition requesting the closure of Oakwood Avenue and Shirley Road at the junction of the A127.
The Cabinet Committee was reminded that a petition had previously been submitted by the residents of Oakwood Avenue requesting measures to reduce the levels of traffic using the road, through changes to the road layout, and to reduce the current speed limit to 20mph. This had been considered by the Cabinet Committee at its meeting on 13th September 2018 when it resolved that consideration of the matter be deferred until the completion of the Kent Elm Highway works (Minute 255 refers).
1. That the new petition be noted.
2. That the request be investigated and the findings be reported to a future meeting of this Committee following completion of the Kent Elm Highway works.
Reason for Decision
