Requests for Waiting Restrictions pdf icon PDF 107 KB

Decision:

The Cabinet Committee received a report of the Deputy Chief Executive (Place) that sought approval to authorise the advertisement of the amendments and/or new waiting restrictions at the locations indicated in Appendix 1 to the submitted report, in accordance with the statutory processes and, subject to there being no objections received following statutory advertisement, to arrange for the relevant orders to be sealed and implement the proposals. 

 

With reference to the request for waiting restrictions in Eastwood Park Car Park, the Cabinet Committee was informed that this same request had previously been considered by the Cabinet Committee at its last meeting.  At that meeting it had resolved to amend the hours of the restrictions from those requested to enable other users of the park to be able to use the car park (Minute 765 refers).  Authorisation to undertake stator consultation for these proposals had therefore already been granted and any objections to the proposed hours should therefore be made in writing to the statutory notice when published.

 

Having considered the views of the Traffic Regulations Working Party, it was:

 

Resolved:-

 

That the Deputy Chief Executive (Place) be authorised to publish the relevant statutory notice and undertake the necessary consultation for a traffic regulation order(s) for the following requests and, subject to there being no objections received following statutory advertisement, to arrange for the order to be sealed and the proposals implemented:

 

(i)  the introduction of “no waiting at any time” restrictions on the bend in Snakes Lane, Southend on Sea;

 

(ii)  the amendment of limited waiting in Shorefield Road, from 1 hour no return in 4 hours to 2 hours no return in 4 hours;

 

(iii)  the introduction of a shared loading and parking bay in the Victoria Avenue Service Road, outside the property at 47 Victoria Road, Southend on Sea; and

 

(iv)  the amendment of the existing waiting restrictions in Royston Avenue at its junction with Eastern Avenue Service Road and Eastern Avenue to provide “no waiting at any time” junction protection on the north kerbline of Eastern Avenue Service Road opposite the junction of Royston Avenue, Southend on Sea.
