Minutes:

The committee received and considered a report which outlined the objections received during the statutory consultation period to the publication of a Traffic Management Order (TMO). These objections made reference to a proposal to extend the double yellow line ‘at any time’ waiting restrictions on Foxglove Lane, Chessington as well as on Woodgate Avenue, Chessington. The proposal was intended to ensure safer access for emergency vehicles.

 

Objections received concerning Foxglove lane related to the supposedly limited parking availability which would be exacerbated if the full length double yellow line was implemented. Upon review of the proposals, the length of the line was reduced. In response to clarification sought from members, it was explained that the initial proposal would have removed 6 to 7 parking spaces and the updated review would remove 2 to 3.

 

RESOLVED that:

1.    The comments and objections received in paragraphs 2 to 4 for Foxglove Lane, and 11 to 13 for Woodgate Avenue, and officer comments in paragraphs 5 to 10 and 14 was noted;

2.    The objections received for the introduction of double yellow line ‘at any time’ waiting restrictions in Foxglove Lane be set aside, and the implementation of the TMO, with amendments as described in paragraphs 9 and 10, was progressed.

3.    The objections received for the introduction of double yellow line ‘at any time’ waiting restrictions in Woodgate Avenue in Chessington be set aside, and the implementation of the TMO was progressed.

4.     The objectors are informed of the Committee’s decisions above.
