TRO, Various Roads Chandler's Ford and Hiltingbury pdf icon PDF 2 MB

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report by the Senior Engineering Specialist (Agenda Item 8) which detailed representations received in response to proposed waiting restrictions on various roads.

 

The Senior Engineering Specialist updated the Committee that they were aware that concerns had been raised by residents about obstructive parking in Ashdown Road. He informed the Committee that the next step was for the 2022 requests for traffic schemes to be presented to members for prioritisation and that once prioritised the schemes would be drawn up and subject to a statutory consultation during which they would accept expressions of support and objection. The outcome of the consultation would then be reported to councillors for a final decision on early 2023.

 

Councillor Pragnell declared a pecuniary interest in item 1c, Meadbrook Gardens, as he owned a property in the road.

 

It was agreed that the decision on item 1c would be deferred until the next group of Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) were brought before the Committee as Councillor Pragnell would be unable to debate or vote on the item and the Committee would not be in quorate without him.

(1)  Approved the introduction of waiting restrictions in

b) Kings Road, and
