Salford City Council - Record of Decision

 

City of Salford (Eccles Old Road, Scholars Avenue and Wordsmith Drive Salford) (Prohibition of Waiting) Order 2021

 

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

 

(i) accede to the objection in part,

(ii) approve the modifications to the scheme as set out in this report and

(iii) authorise the making of the Traffic Regulation Order in the modified form.

 

The Reasons are:

 

A request has been made to Salford City Council to introduce ‘No Waiting At Any Time’ restrictions and to introduce 20mph Speed Limit Order on a new residential development off Eccles Old Road, (Scholars Avenue, Wordsmith Drive and Principle Close).

 

The proposals are considered appropriate to maintain safe access and egress and to ensure access round the new development by service vehicles including bin wagons and emergency services, along with maintaining the flows of traffic along the A576 Eccles Old Road.

 

When the proposals were advertised, the estate has been occupied for a few years, some of the expected/anticipated parking problems, with commuter parking and access for service vehicles including bin wagons have not been realised.

 

As such when resident pointed out there was fewer problem than originally anticipated, we were happy to adhere to their requests, to reduce the proposed restrictions, to only cover the remaining areas of concern. Being flows of traffic on Eccles Old Road, the emergency access off Prestwood Road and the junction of Scholars Avenue with Eccles Old Road, along with the bend on Scholars Avenue just north of its junction with Eccles Old Road. 

 

Assessment of Risk:

 

The TRO restrictions would be an effective measure in maintaining flows of traffic along the A576 Eccles Old Road when the new right turn lane is implemented. They will also ensure the existing access is safe for vehicles to access and egress and visibility for not only vehicles but the many pedestrians including many children attending the nearby All Hallows High School

 

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 will be meet by the developer

 

Procurement Advice obtained: N/A

This decision is not subject to consideration by another Lead Member.

 

The appropriate scrutiny panel to call-in the decision is the Growth & Prosperity Scrutiny Panel.
