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 City Council constitution do hereby:


Accede to the objections in part; By the removal of the St Stevenson St filter, which the majority of representations made were against being made permanent.


Not authorise the making of the Traffic Regulation Order, but promote a new experimental order to place filters at existing and revised locations as indicated in this report.


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 City of Salford (Streets in Ordsall And Irwell Riverside) (Prohibition of Vehicles Except Pedal Cycles) Experimental) Order 2020 as outlined in the Bee Network within City Centre Salford. The project forms part of the Greater Manchester wide programme to make journeys on foot or by bike much easier and more attractive.


Assessment of Risk: Implementation of the modal filters would make cycling and walking in the Trinity and Islington areas more attractive and promote cleaner air and healthier lifestyles along with making the area safer for all the community.



The source of funding: The scheme is being promoted by theEmergency Active Travel (EAT) fund and any future requirements to make changes/amend or make new experimental orders will be funded through Active Travel Fund (ATF).

For the long-term proposal of the scheme, most of the funding will be sought from the Mayor Challenge Fund (MCF) and from Section 106 funding secured by the City Council for the Salford City Centre Bee Network.


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, 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: There are no procurement implications contained within this report.


The following documents have been used to assist the decision process.

Site notices, Proposal Plan, Lead Member Report, Consultation feedback and consideration of representations made. Residents’ surveys and Bee line network master plan
