Decision details

Traffic Management Measures - Community Infrastructure Levy Funded Schemes

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Executive Director for Economic Growth and Neighbourhood Services submitted a report providing the Sub-Committee with concept designs for requested traffic management schemes that had received funding from local Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) contributions.  The concept scheme designs were attached to the report at Appendix 1.

The report explained that the Council had allocated CIL funding to enable the delivery of a number of traffic management schemes, the majority of which had originated from the ‘Requests for Traffic Management Measures’ report that was submitted to the meeting bi-annually.  Officers had conducted initial investigation works, had obtained indicative quotations and had provided Ward Councillors with recommended concept designs that they felt should be deliverable, within the allocated budgets and Ward Councillors had been provided with an opportunity to comment on the concept schemes.  Officers intended to progress these schemes to a detailed feasibility and design stage which for most would necessitate external road safety audits, speed surveys and possible ground investigation works to be conducted.  These processes would necessitate the use of the CIL contributions.

Many of the schemes would require statutory consultation or notification to be conducted and approvals were sought from the Sub-Committee to enable officer to progress with the necessary processes that could lead to the delivery of the schemes.  This did not guarantee the implementation of the schemes and should any significant alterations be necessary, or objections to the consultation be received, officers would submit further reports to future meetings.  If this was not the case then it was intended that officers would progress the schemes to delivery.  A table setting out the decisions that officers were seeking was included in the report.

The report explained that officers had developed concept proposals for the privately funded request for a controlled pedestrian crossing in Pepper Lane and a concept had also been developed for a controlled pedestrian crossing on Upper Redlands Road, for which a modest private contribution had also been raised.  Officers would be sharing these proposals with the funding contributors and would report the proposals to a future meeting with any necessary alterations.

In relation to the enforcement of 20mph areas scheme, the Sub-Committee only agreed to a single calibrated ANPR camera being installed.  The device would enable the Police to use the data captured by the camera to contact owners of speeding vehicles to issue warnings in the first instance.

Resolved –

(1)     That the report be noted;

(2)     That the Assistant Director of Legal and Democratic Services be authorised to undertake the statutory advertisement processes for each scheme, as set out in paragraph 4.4 of the report, whilst noting that only one calibrated ANPR camera should be included in Scheme (i) ‘enforcement of 20mph areas’;

(3)     That subject to no objections being received, the Assistant Director of Legal and Democratic Services be authorised to seal any resultant Traffic Regulation Orders;

(4)     That any objection(s) received following the statutory advertisements be reported to a future meeting;

(5)     That the Head of Transport (or appropriate Officer), in consultation with the appropriate Lead Councillor, be authorised to make minor changes to the proposals;

(6)     That no public enquiry be held into the proposals.
