Salford City Council - Record of Decision


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


1.    accede to the objection in part;

2.    approve the modified proposals for the ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ restrictions on Kirkman Avenue, Darwell Avenue and Barton Road set out in this report; and

3.    authorise the making of the Kirkman Avenue, Darwell Avenue and Barton Lane Traffic Regulation Order CITY OF SALFORD (DARWELL AVENUE, KIRKMAN AVENUE AND BARTON ROAD, BARTON) (PROHIBITION OF WAITING) ORDER 2019 in the modified form.


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 ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ restrictions on Kirkman Avenue, Darwell Avenue and Barton Road to maintain pedestrian safety at the junction.


Assessment of Risk: Implementation of the restrictions would decrease the risk of collisions and improve access.


The source of funding: to be met from the Block 3 Highways Capital allocation of the Eccles devolved budget from the 2018/19 financial year.


Legal Advice obtained: Where objections are received by the Council following the advertisement of proposals, the decision regarding the implementation of the proposals is delegated to the relevant Lead Member for determination, following consultation with the Council’s Traffic Advisory Panel. Adhering to this procedure should not give rise to any legal implications.

The Local Authorities’ Traffic Order Procedure Regulations 1996 provide that an order-making authority may modify an order in consequence of any objection or otherwise before it is made. If the modification constitutes a substantial change, the order-making authority shall give persons likely to be affected by the modifications the opportunity to make representations. In the context of the proposed modification to the order, it is not considered that the modification set out in the report constitutes a substantial change.  If the decision is made to implement the proposals in this report, this should not give rise to any legal implications provided the works are carried out in accordance with the appropriate statutory requirements, including the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.


Financial Advice obtained: N/A


Procurement Advice obtained: No comments received.
