Minutes:

(Mr B Shirley declared a pecuniary interest in this item and took no part in the discussion).

 

The Local Committee considered a report by the Executive Director – Economy and Infrastructure which detailed the responses to the statutory consultation and advertising of the traffic regulation order, The County of Cumbria (Various Roads, Barrow-in-Furness) (Consolidation and Minor Amendment of Traffic Regulations) (Order 2001) Variation Order (No 39) 20><, (“the Order”) which included proposals for various locations in Askam?in?Furness, Barrow?in?Furness and Dalton-in-Furness.

 

The local Member for Walney South raised his concerns regarding the entry in Appendix 4 of the report which referred to restrictions for The Promenade, Walney.  A single response was received in objection to the extension of the existing double yellow lines.  In the summary and recommendation outcome for The Promenade on Walney it was indicated that the proposal would not be implemented as advertised.  The local Member for Walney South was concerned that the proposal should be implemented.  Members noted that after checking Appendix 4 of the report the entry referred to, the Traffic Management Team Leader was able to explain that it was an error and it should have indicated that it be recommended that the proposal should be implemented as advertised.

 

The local Member for Walney North welcomed the proposals for the entrance to North Scales village but raised his concerns regarding the proposed parking restrictions near the Crown Hotel and asked why his suggestion to extend the double?yellow lines to in front of the Hotel to improve visibility had not been agreed.  The Traffic Management Team Leader explained that once the Traffic Regulation Order had been advertised anything added to it which was more onerous or restrictive would result in it being advertised again and delaying the process, therefore, proposed that ‘keep clear’ markings were placed there for the time?being and the extension of the double?yellow be considered in a future Traffic Regulation Order.

 

The local Member for Hindpool raised concerns regarding lines which had eroded at a disabled parking bay in her Division.  It was agreed details would be made available to the Traffic Management Team Leader for further investigation.

 

The local Member for Roosecote raised concerns about the lack of correspondence regarding a proposed disabled parking bay in his Division and highlighted a number of issues raised by local residents in his area.  It was agreed that details of the disabled parking bay be forwarded to the Traffic Management Team Leader for further investigation and that a site visit would be arranged with officers and the local Member to look at the other issues in the Division.

 

The local Member for Dalton South raised a query about disabled parking bays on a street that may no longer be required by the resident.  A discussion took place regarding disabled parking bays and officers asked members to inform them of any which it was felt were no longer required.

 

RESOLVED,   that 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), The County of Cumbria (Various Roads, Barrow?in?Furness) (Consolidation and Minor Amendment of Traffic Regulations) (Order 2001) Variation Order (No. 40) 20><, be brought into operation as advertised, EXCEPT for the following:

 

                          (a)          the proposed restrictions on the west side of Hamilton Terrace, Dalton?in?Furness be reduced from 8 metres to 4 metres in response to the objection received (as shown on the amended plan in Appendix 5 of the report); and

 

                          (b)          the restrictions in Dale Street, Askam?in?Furness and Greenhaume, Askam?in?Furness be omitted from the made Order.
