15/01/2020 - Publication Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations ref: 601    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Made at meeting: 15/01/2020 - Cabinet

Decision published: 15/01/2020

Effective from: 24/01/2020

Decision:

Salford City Council - Record of Decision (CABINET)

 

I Paul Dennett, City Mayor in consultation with the Cabinet and in exercise of the powers contained within the City Council constitution do hereby:

1.    Approve the Publication Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations and the supporting background documents;

2.    Agree that these documents be subject to a period for representations between 27 January 2020 and 20 March 2020; and

3.    Delegate to the Strategic Director Place authority to approve the statement required pursuant to Section 20(3) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 and Regulation 22 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012.

 

The Reasons are: To continue making progress in updating the city’s development management policies and designations, and provide an opportunity for the community and other stakeholders to make representations on the Publication Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designationsdocument before it is submitted to the Secretary of State for examination.

 

Options considered and rejected were: The city council initially started preparing a single Local Plan, however due to delays in the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF) process, Salford’s Local Plan will now be produced in two parts. It is considered preferable to progress the plan in two parts rather than further delay the adoption of updated development management policies and designations. The Publication Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designationsidentifies the approach that the city council intends to take, having had regard to the comments received during the previous stages of consultation, additional evidence that has been assembled, changes to national planning policy and work on the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework. Reasonable alternatives are considered through the sustainability appraisal.

 

Assessment of Risk: In order for the city council to be able to adopt the Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations, the document must be found sound when an independent examination of the document is carried out. To be sound a Local Plan must be positively prepared, justified, effective and consistent with national policy, and the city council must be able to demonstrate the soundness of the document to a Planning Inspector on this basis. It is recognised that various policies, may be subject to significant challenge from those seeking different policy approaches, but the plan is considered to be sound.

 

The source of funding is: The non-staff costs associated with the consultation are limited in scale (associated with the printing of the documents) and will be met from existing revenue budgets. Subsequent actions following publication will incur other financial implications in future financial years.

14/01/2020 - City of Salford (Roston Road, Salford) (Prohibition of Waiting) Order 2019-20. ref: 600    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development

Made at meeting: 14/01/2020 - Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development

Decision published: 14/01/2020

Effective from: 22/01/2020

Decision:

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.

Urban Vision Partnership was procured through a fully compliant OJEU process.  The services outlined within the report are delivered under the exclusivity agreement in line with the Council’s contractual standing orders.

14/01/2020 - City of Salford (Victoria Crescent, Eccles) (Prohibition of Waiting and Limited Waiting Parking Place) Order 2020. ref: 599    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development

Made at meeting: 14/01/2020 - Lead Member for Planning and Sustainable Development

Decision published: 14/01/2020

Effective from: 22/01/2020

Decision:

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:

2260 – Victoria Crescent – Prohibition of Waiting and Limited Waiting Parking Places

 

This will be considered a substantial change to the proposals as advertised. Under regulation 14(3) of the Local Authorities’ Traffic Orders (Procedure) (England and Wales) Regulations 1996 where modifications appear to make a substantial change in the order, the order making authority shall take the steps required by paragraph (4).

 

The steps in paragraph (4) are such steps as appear to the order making authority as appropriate:

(a) Informing persons likely to be affected by the modifications;

(b) Giving those persons an opportunity of making representations; and

(c) Ensuring such representations is duly considered by the authority.

 

In complying with the above, the revised proposals should be re-advertised before making any order.

 

Financial Advice obtained: The cost of the proposed scheme will be met from the Highways devolved capital allocation for Eccles in the 2019-20 financial year.
