City of Salford (Victoria Crescent, Eccles) (Prohibition of Waiting and Limited Waiting Parking Place) Order 2020. PDF 438 KB
Salford City Council - Record of Decision
I, Councillor Antrobus, Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development, in exercise of the powers contained within the Council Constitution, do hereby authorise the advertisement of the proposals in the modified form in respect of Victoria Crescent, Eccles as set out in the report; and if no objections are made or maintained, authorise the making of the Traffic Regulation Order in the modified form.
The Reasons are: A request has been made to the Eccles Highways Task Group to look into parking issues on the cul-de-sac end of Victoria Crescent in Eccles. Complaints had been received about cars parked all day preventing people finding on street parking space near the local facilities. The original proposal had been to introduce Limited Waiting Parking Places on the south east side, close to the cul-de-sac end, right next to the proposed ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ restrictions. This had been intended to provide a turnover parking places for nearby schools and nurseries. These parking places were proposed next to a house with a garage but no driveway. The Traffic Regulation Order to introduce Limited Waiting and ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ restrictions was legally advertised on 18th July 2019 for 21 days, during which time 5 objections and 1 representation of support were received.
Following consideration of objections, and after consideration by the Eccles Highways Task Group, it is proposed to re-advertise an amended scheme to provide ‘Limited Waiting’ parking places Monday – Friday, 8am – 6pm, 2 hours no return within 2 hours, closer to the junction with Clarendon Crescent adjacent to Clarendon Garden, to provide a turnover of parking spaces to serve nearby nurseries, schools and people who might need to use free 2 hours parking place as well as parents to drop off and pick up their children. These restrictions will also relocate some of the long stay parking. Restrictions will be on south east side where there are no houses, hence no direct inconvenience for residents. The ‘No Waiting at Any Time’ restrictions at the end of cul-de-sac end of Victoria Crescent should be introduced to create turning area for drivers, so they do not have to reverse from cul-de-sac end of Victoria Crescent in order to leave the street. The majority of the street remains unrestricted.
Assessment of Risk: 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: 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.
Should the recommendations be approved as set out in this report for:

City of Salford (Roston Road, Salford) (Prohibition of Waiting) Order 2019-20. PDF 120 KB
Salford City Council - Record of Decision
I, Councillor 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 ‘CITY OF SALFORD (ROSTON ROAD, SALFORD) (PROHIBITION OF WAITING) ORDER 2019-20.’
The Reasons are: Currently there is unrestricted parking at the A576 Leicester Road/Roston Road/Coke Street West junction; parked vehicles reduces visibility and safety at the junction. Similar complaints have been made at the junction of Roston Road and Roston Court.
A request made to the East Salford Community Committee Highways Task Group, the proposals seek to install junction protection through double yellow lines indicating no waiting at any time, in order to remove parking. These restrictions will ensure junctions are kept clear from parked vehicles and will improve the junction, ensuring safer accessibility for residents, visitors and other vehicles.
‘Transport for Greater Manchester’ (TfGM) have fully supported the introduction of these restrictions to assist bus movement and to ensure passengers can board/alight directly onto the footway.
This proposal will assist in promoting safe manoeuvres at the junctions as well as providing improvements for bus passengers
Assessment of Risk:
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: Date provided: 8th August 2019.
A Traffic Regulation Order will be required to introduce the prohibition of waiting restrictions. This 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 the proposed TRO.
Financial Advice obtained: Date provided: 31st July 2019
The cost of the proposed scheme will be met from the Highways devolved capital allocation for East Salford, in the 2019-20 financial year.
Procurement Advice obtained: Date provided: 9th August 2019.
