Salford City Council - Record of Decision


I, Councillor Mike McCusker, Lead Member for Planning, Transport and Sustainable Development, in exercise of the powers contained within the Council Constitution, do hereby:


Authorise the permanent making of the Traffic Regulation Order below in the form given in the Notice of Proposals and as set out in the report:


City of Salford (Shipley Avenue Area) (Prohibition of Waiting) Order 2023


The reasons are:

That the necessary action be taken under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 to advertise the intention to make the Traffic Order to introduce City of Salford (Shipley Avenue Area) (Prohibition of Waiting) Order 2023 as a permanent Traffic Order. Implementation of the Traffic Order would allow enforcement of waiting restrictions to take place, improving access, road safety and traffic flow in this residential area. 


Options considered and rejected were:

Officers suggest to process the scheme as originally advertised.


Assessment of risk:

The restrictions will be signed in accordance with the Traffic Signs Manual and Traffic Sign Regulations and General Directions (TSRGD 2016).


The source of funding: Claremont & Weaste Highways Devolved budget 2021/22 carried forward.


Legal advice obtained:

The Council, by virtue of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 can introduce orders to manage traffic. Where Traffic Regulation Orders are required, they should not give rise to any particular legal implications provided the works and procedures are carried out in accordance with the relevant statutory requirements, which would include the consideration of any objections to a proposed TRO.


Financial advice obtained:

The scheme is being funded by the Claremont & Weaste Highways Devolved budget 2021/22 carried forward.


Procurement advice obtained: There are no procurement implications contained within this report.


HR implications: N/A


Climate Change implications: N/A
