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 authorise the making of the Traffic Regulation Order to introduce ‘Prohibition and Restriction of Waiting, Parking Places on Sutherland Street, Rutland Street, Elm Street, Cemetery Road South & Chorley Road Area and ‘Off-Street Parking Places’ Elm Street Car Park, Salford, Order 2019


The Reasons are:


The proposed scheme will improve the local amenities of the area by improving a turnover of parking places.


Requests have also been received from local businesses to try to reduce some of the issues they have been experienced due to indiscriminate parking as well some excessive parking restrictions. This is as a result of vehicles being parked on both sides of the Rutland Street causing accessibility problems for the businesses operating on Rutland Street/Sutherland Street and Elm Street. This indiscriminate parking could also cause access problems for emergency service vehicles.


As a result of these concerns the Swinton and Pendlebury Highway Task group requested to review the current parking and waiting restrictions in Rutland.


Observations on site have revealed that the signs that enable enforcement of the existing limited waiting and restriction of waiting in the area have either been removed or defaced to an extent which renders some of the site unenforceable


It is therefore revoked all existing TRO’s and introducing new TRO to improve vitality of area with Road Safety.


Assessment of Risk:   


The Off Street Parking Place, No Waiting at Any Time, Prohibition of Waiting and Limited Waiting restrictions will be marked out in accordance with the Traffic Signs Manual and Traffic  Sign Regulations and General Directions.
