PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE PENRITH TRAFFIC REGULATION ORDER IN FOSTER STREET, STRICKLANDGATE AND ULLSWATER ROAD - PENRITH
To consider a report by the Corporate Director – Environment (copy enclosed).
The Committee considered a report by the Corporate Director – Environment which advisedmembers, following the advertisement of two Traffic Regulation Orders, to alter the current parking arrangements in both Foster Street and Stricklandgate as well as removing the three hour waiting limit on parts of Ullswater Road. Resolution 1a and b below related to Foster Street, 2 and 3a to Stricklandgate and 3b to Ullswater Road. It was reported that whilst no objections or comments had been made in respect of the Ullswater Road proposals during the statutory period following advertisement two members reported that some concerns had subsequently been made including one by the local bowling club. However members generally agreed that the proposal to remove the three hour parking restriction on Ullswater Road was aimed at giving all users a fair opportunity to park and also relieve displaced parking problems in other nearby unrestricted residential roads.
Members were asked to consider the recommendations and indicate whether the relevant orders should be confirmed or alternatively not confirmed as advertised.
(1) members agree to the Head of Legal Practice bringing into operation The County of Cumbria (Consolidation and Provision of Traffic Regulations) (Order 2007) Variation (No. 2) Order 20>< only in so far as it relates to: -

(b) introducing two sections of no waiting at any time restrictions.
both of which are shown in the site notice in Appendix 1 of the report and on the plan in Appendix 2 of the report, having taken into consideration the matters contained in Section Section 122(2) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 which are more specifically referred to at paragraph 7.2 of the report;
(2) members uphold the objections and do not confirm the proposed changes to Stricklandgate as detailed in Traffic Regulation Order detailed in paragraph 3.1 of the report in relation to the proposal to change two existing bays from limited waiting for 1 hour Monday to Saturday 8am – 6pm, to disc parking places for 1 hour Monday to Saturday 8am – 6pm, as described in the site notice in Appendix 1 of the report and shown on the drawing in Appendix 2 of the report;
(3) members agree to the Head of Legal Practice bring into operation The County of Cumbria (Various Roads, Penrith) (Consolidation and Provision of Traffic Regulations) (Order 2007) Variation (No. 4) Order 20><, having taken into consideration the matters contained in Section 122(2) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 which are more specifically referred to at paragraph 7.2 of the report.
