Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To inform the Committee of objections received to a proposal to introduce prohibition of driving and prohibition of waiting restrictions at Malvern Street West and Claremont Road, Rochdale

Decisions:

The Sub-Committee considered a report by the Director of Neighbourhoods advising of objections received to the advertised Traffic Regulation Order Borough of Rochdale (Malvern Street West, Rochdale) (Prohibition of Driving) Order and the Borough of Rochdale ((Civil Enforcement of Traffic

Contraventions) (Various Streets) (Rochdale Township) Order 2008) (Amendment) (No. 141); at Malvern Street West and Claremont Road, Rochdale.

 

Alternatives considered:

The Committee could consider recommending that the proposal be amended or abandoned. Should Committee decide not to introduce the restrictions proposed then the issues with through traffic movements and parked vehicles, which were reported to Rochdale Township, will not be addressed.

 

Decision:

That Traffic Regulation Order Borough of Rochdale (Malvern Street West, Rochdale) (Prohibition of Driving) Order and the Borough of Rochdale ((Civil Enforcement of Traffic Contraventions) (Various Streets) (Rochdale Township) Order 2008) (Amendment) (No. 141); at Malvern Street West and Claremont Road, Rochdale; be approved.

 

Reason for decision:

To stop the use of Malvern Street West as a ‘through route’ between Bury Road and Sandy Lane. Motorists using the short cut often did so travelling at higher speeds.
