Minutes:

The Traffic Management Advisory Committee considered the report on the results of the informal consultation on the proposal to extend the Croydon Controlled Parking Zone (East Outer Permit Area) into the Exeter Road Area which includes unrestricted roads between Davidson Road and Morland Road in Addiscombe.

 

The Committee were informed that an informal consultation had taken place across a large area which encompassed a number of roads. The recommendation from officers was to proceed to formal consultation in the roads stated within the report, which included some roads that had not voted in favour of controlled parking due to the likely displacement of parking to those roads.

 

Mr West-Allwood addressed the Committee as a resident of Dominion Road and noted that the majority of residents of that road were not in favour of parking controls. Officers confirmed that it was not the intention to go to formal consultation for Dominian Road and it would not be part of the proposal under consideration.

 

Councillor Fitzsimons addressed the Committee as a Ward Councillor and thanked officers for the successful consultation which had had a large level of resident engagement. Councillor Fitzsimons welcomed that roads which had supported controlled parking were to be included in the formal consultation and stated he understood why the additional roads were also included due to the potential impact on the surrounding areas if the controlled parking zone was extended. In light of roads being added that had not initially been in favour, Councillor Fitzsimons requested that due consideration was given to their views following the formal consultation before the final decision was made.

 

The Chair recognised that the integrity of the scheme would be challenged if all roads within the proposal were not included. The Chair noted the recommendations were to consider whether to proceed and the Committee voted to proceed to formal consultation.

 

The Traffic Management Advisory Committee RESOLVED to recommend to the Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment that they:

 

1.    Consider the responses received to the informal consultation on the proposal to extend the Croydon Controlled Parking Zone (East Outer Permit Zone) into the Exeter Road area.

 

2.    Consider to proceed to the formal consultation stage regarding the proposal to extend the Croydon Controlled Parking Zone (East Outer Permit Area) into Edward Road, Exeter Road, Leicester Road, Morland Avenue, Rymer Road, Stretton Road, and Vincent Road as shown on Drawing No. PD – 340/1.

 

3.    If formal consultation is proceeded with, delegate to the Highway Improvement Manager, Streets Directorate the authority to give notice and (subject to receiving no objections on the giving of the public notice) to make the necessary Traffic Management Orders under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 (as amended) in order to implement Recommendation 1.2 above.

 

4.    Note that any material objections received after the public notice is given will be reported to a future Traffic Management Advisory Committee for the Members’ consideration and onward recommendation to the Cabinet Member.
