Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Working Party received a report of Executive Director (Neighbourhoods and Environment) that sought approval to recommend to the Cabinet Committee for the commencement of consultation and implementation of a Traffic Regulation Orders to introduce no waiting restrictions in the sections of road set out in Appendix 1 to the submitted report.

 

With reference to the proposals for Item No. 2 Ashburnham Road, Southend on Sea, the Working Party noted that there may other roads within the Borough where one-way traffic flows had been introduced and additional parking could be provided safely, by revoking sections of the existing waiting restrictions. The Council’s Traffic & Highways Business Change & Development Service Manager undertook to refer this suggestion to the Highways Engineers for investigation.

 

It was also noted that the details of the proposals for Item No 3. London Road near to Cranleigh Drive, Leigh on Sea as set out in the Appendix to the report were unclear as reference had been made in the officer comments section to the introduction of shared use loading bay and pay and display parking. There were no other pay and display parking in this area of the London Road.

 

Resolved:-

 

That the Cabinet Committee be recommended:

 

1. That the Executive Director (Neighbourhoods & Environment) be authorised to undertake the statutory consultation and prepare the requisite traffic regulation order(s) for the introduction of restrictions in the sections of road detailed Item No 1. Rayleigh Road Service Road, Eastwood (Rochford Corner) and Item No. 2 Ashburnham Road, Southend on Sea, as set out in Appendix 1 to the submitted report and, subject to there being no objections following statutory advertisement to arrange for the order to be confirmed and the proposals implemented. Any unresolved objections will be submitted to the Traffic Regulations Working Party and Cabinet Committee for consideration.

 

2. That the proposals in respect of Item No. 3 London Road near to Cranleigh Drive, Leigh on Sea be deferred pending clarification of the restrictions being recommended and the outcome of consultation with the Councillors representing Belfairs Ward, Blenheim Park Ward and Leigh Ward.
