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, Loading/Unloading, Parking Places on Cannon Street, Trinity Estate Area, Salford, Order 2019 (TRO Ref No. 2115)

 

The Reasons are:

 

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

 

The introduction of the Limited Waiting bays in the Cannon Street Area will remove long stay commuter parking which will provide residents and their visitors more opportunity to find on street parking spaces.

 

The Resident Parking place restriction is to be introduced to a small residential area on Cannon Street, Arlington Street and Barnet Drive where the properties do no benefit from off street parking places.

 

The scheme for Limited Waiting Parking Places would be operational from Monday to Friday 8.00am to 6.00pm, Outside of these hours anybody can park in these streets.

 

The introduction of the Limited Waiting bays in the Cannon Street Area will remove long stay commuter parking which will provide residents and their visitors more opportunity to find on street parking spaces.

 

The Resident Parking place restriction is to be introduced to a small residential area on Cannon Street, Arlington Street and Barnet Drive where the properties do not benefit from off street parking places.

 

The introduction of Prohibition of Waiting in some areas will ensure that accessibility for local residents and service vehicles is available, as well as assisting in the general safe movement of vehicles by preventing double parking where appropriate, in addition to providing improved visibility at junctions and space for vehicles to turn at junctions.

 

To deliver this scheme it is also proposed to revoke existing orders and introduce new TRO as per the schedules and drawing attached.

 

Alteration proposed after TAP meeting on 4th July 2019:

 

-          Remove ‘No Waiting At Any Time’ TRO from North western side of Briggs Street

-          Remove ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ TRO from South eastern section of Cannon Street and install H-Bar access protection markings near North Hill Street.

-          Extend ‘Loading bay’ length on North western side of Briggs Street

-          Extend waiting limit to 3 hours in some of the proposed ‘Limited Waiting’ bays as scheduled in this report.

 

Assessment of Risk:   

 

The TRO restrictions would be a very effective measure at removing long stay parking, it is recognised by the East Salford Highway Task Group (HTG) that this proposal could be controversial, some residents might be inconvenienced. Also, the HTG accepted that, current parking issues may occur on other streets in the vicinity if the proposal will be introduced.

 

Council Policy regarding resident parking means that if properties have off street parking provision, they will not be eligible for consideration of a residents parking scheme. The small resident parking scheme in this area only covers those properties that have no off street parking provision.

 

Blue Badge holders will be able to park unrestricted within the Limited Waiting bays in accordance with the national concessionary Blue Badge Scheme.
