Items for Decision (Part 1 - Open to the Public):
Salford City Council - Record of Decision
Authorise the permanent making of the Traffic Regulation Order below in the form given in the Notice of Proposals and as set out in the Report:
City of Salford (West Craven Street Area)
No Waiting At Any Time Traffic Regulation Order 2023
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 (West Craven Street Area) (Prohibition of Waiting) Order 2023 as a permanent Traffic Order. Implementation of the Traffic Order would allow enforcement of existing waiting restrictions to take place, improving access, road safety and traffic flow in this residential area.
Options considered and rejected were:
Officers considered reducing the extent of waiting restrictions provided along Greenwood Terrace as requested by objectors. This was rejected as yellow line restrictions have been in place since the development was first constructed without an associated Traffic Order, thus removal would encourage an increase in non-residential parking on Greenwood Terrace exacerbating the issues caused by indiscriminate parking in the area.
Consideration was also given to a permit parking scheme as requested by objectors. The Councils criteria for a permit parking scheme was not met as more than 50% of residents within the area had access to off-street parking either by way of private parking bay or a garage. As such this option was considered but deemed not viable.
Assessment of Risk:
The restrictions will be signed in accordance with the Traffic Signs Manual and Traffic Sign Regulations and General Directions (TSRGD 2016).
The source of funding:
Ordsall & Langworthy Highways Devolved Capital Funding 2021/22 carried forward.
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 Traffic Regulation Order.
Financial Advice obtained: N/A
Procurement Advice obtained: There are no procurement implications contained within this report.
