Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I, Councillor McCusker, 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 ‘City of Salford (Chesterfield Close, Eccles) (Prohibition of Waiting) Order 2019’ in the form given in the Notice of Proposals and as set out in the report.

 

The Reasons are:

Chesterfield Close is a relatively new development which is situated off Worsley Road in Winton.

 

Complaints have been received concerning visitors to nearby businesses parking on both sides and on the footway on Chesterfield Close, near the junction with Worsley Road and access points to multiple properties, causing access and exit problems from both the junction and residents access points.

 

It is therefore proposed to introduce ‘No waiting at any time’ restrictions on Chesterfield Close as indicated on the plan included in the accompanying report.  It is proposed to provide an access protection marking across the driveways on the south east side of Chesterfield Close which will keep access clear. 

 

These proposals will improve access and road safety along Chesterfield Close for emergency and service vehicles as well as motorists and pedestrians.

 

Assessment of Risk:

The TRO restrictions would be an effective measure of moving the footway, junction and access parking, preventing safe access by all road users.

It is recognised by the Worsley Highway Task Group (HTG) that this proposal could be controversial, as some residents might be inconvenienced by the displacement of parking. In that, current parking issues may occur on further into Chesterfield Close or other streets in the vicinity if the proposals are introduced.

 

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

 

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 cost of the proposed schemes will be met by the developer.

 

Procurement Advice obtained: N/A

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I, Councillor McCusker, 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 ‘City of Salford (Torrax Close, Claremont & Weaste, Salford) (Prohibition of Waiting) Order 2020’ in the form given in the Notice of Proposals and as set out in the report.

 

The Reasons are:

Currently there is unrestricted parking on Torrax Close, leading to parked vehicles on the narrow street which reduces visibility and manoeuvring space for vehicles. Parking also takes place on the sole footway available into this street which impacts on the safety of the pedestrians.

 

The Claremont & Weaste Community Committee Highways Task Group have been made aware of concerns from the local community regarding parking issues on Torrax Close some time ago. The Task Group have funded a letter drop to residents in the area, requesting that they park considerately. As this approach appeared to have minimal impact the Task Group has also carried out an informal consultation in the area indicating that parking restrictions were being considered. The results of the January 2019 consultation were narrowly in favour of the proposed restrictions.

 

As a result of the continuing complaints the Task Group prioritised funding to provide waiting restrictions to tackle the continuing parking issues.

 

Assessment of Risk:

The TRO restrictions would be effective measure at removing parking, it is recognised by the Claremont & Weaste 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.

 

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

 

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 cost of the proposed scheme will be met from the approved Highways Block 3 devolved capital allocation for Claremont and Weaste Community Committee in the 2021-22 financial year.

 

Procurement Advice obtained:

The TRO was commenced by Urban Vision Partnership under the DSPA exclusivity in compliance with CSO’s. The work will be completed by the City Council.

City of Salford (Longwall Avenue, Salford) (Prohibition of Waiting Amendment) Order 2021 - Traffic Regulation Order. pdf icon PDF 368 KB

Additional documents:

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I, Councillor McCusker, 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 ‘City of Salford (Longwall Avenue, Salford) (Prohibition of Waiting Amendment) Order 2021’ in the form given in the Notice of Proposals and as set out in the report.

 

The Reasons are:

Complaints have been made to the Boothstown & Ellenbrook Community Committee Highways Task Group about the parking situation on Longwall Avenue especially during school pick up and drop off times which prevents pedestrian from walking along Longwall Avenue footways, due to cars being parked on the pavement preventing use. As such It is considered appropriate to introduce waiting restrictions between Habergham Close and Bellpit Close to remove the parking from the footway allowing pedestrians at least one side of the road unrestricted for pedestrians, this should also help improve the flow of traffic and visibility sight lines of both pedestrians and drivers, as indicated on the attached plan.

 

The school has also highlighted an emergency access issue, which has resulted in a request to extend the current junction protection that is in place at the junction of Longwall Avenue.

 

The parking bay on the north side of Longwall Avenue is frequently at capacity during school pick up and drop off times generating overspill parking. Some of this parking takes place on the opposite side of the road, on the footway between Bellpit Close and Habergham Close.

 

The scheme is to promote a safer environment for all highway users, particularly pedestrians who are at risk as a result of the footway parking.

 

Assessment of Risk:

The TRO restrictions would be an effective measure of moving the footway parking preventing pedestrian use, it is recognised by the Boothstown & Ellenbrook Highway Task Group (HTG) that this proposal could be controversial, as some residents might be inconvenienced, by the displacement of parking. In that, current parking issues may occur on other streets in the vicinity if the proposals are introduced.

 

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

Request from Greater Manchester Police for the continuation of the City of Salford (Various Roads) Traffic Regulation Order 2019. pdf icon PDF 245 KB

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

I, Councillor Mike McCusker, Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development, in exercise of the powers contained within the Council Constitution, do hereby authorise the continuance of the below mentioned Traffic Regulation Order:

 

CITY OF SALFORD (VARIOUS ROADS) TRAFFIC REGULATION ORDER 2019

 

The Reasons are:     

The anti-terrorism traffic regulation order was introduced following a request from the Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police to potentially control the movement of pedestrians and vehicles on City streets as part of a package of measures aimed at improving the security of people in crowded places and protecting damage to buildings from a potential terrorist attack.

 

The Order would give to an officer of Greater Manchester Police of the rank of Inspector or above the power to restrict all or part of any City street at their discretion on the basis of a security assessment or intelligence of a threat. The discretion must be exercised in accordance with the Schedule and any agreed Protocol for the time being in force to ensure that any interference is proportionate and that such restrictions are for the minimum extent and for the minimum period necessary.

 

Within the ATTRO, there is a requirement for all parties to review the operation of the ATTRO on an annual basis review to ensure that the power was being used correctly and that it remained a proportionate and necessary power.

 

Since the ATTRO was introduced it has remained dormant. It had been foreseen that the ATTRO would be primarily used as part of a wider suite of measures implemented to increase protective security around events. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic such events within the city centre have not taken place and public footfall until very recently has been dramatically reduced.

 

It is anticipated that large scale events will return to the city centre in late summer 2021.

 

Assessment of Risk:

In considering the request for a continuance of the ATTRO, regard has been given to the duty to act in accordance with the European Convention on Human Rights. In relation to possible restriction of access to property, any interference with Article 1 rights to enjoyment of property must be justified. Interference may be regarded as justified where it is lawful, pursues a legitimate purpose, is not discriminatory, and is necessary.

 

It must also strike a fair balance between the public interest and private rights affected (i.e. be proportionate). It is considered that the public interest in being protected by the existence and operation of the ATTRO outweighs any interference with private rights which is likely to occur when restrictions are in operation.

 

The scope of restrictions must be proportionate and should only last until the likelihood of danger or damage is removed or reduced sufficiently in the judgment of a senior police officer.

 

                 It is considered that the Schedule to the ATTRO will ensure that any interference is proportionate, and, given the risks to life and property which could arise if  ...  view the full decision text for item 3h
