Highways & Neighbourhoods Cabinet Member – Minutes – 26 September 2013

Due to inconsiderate parking by motorists, buses were experiencing difficulties travelling around Bolsover Road.

The proposed restrictions would prevent vehicles parking around junctions, which would improve visibility and aid residents on their journeys.

The track parallel to Doncaster Road also provided emergency access to Glanford Park Football Stadium.  It occasionally became obstructed by parked vehicles.

Letters were sent to a range of consultees.  This included every property in the area during the statutory consultation process.  Notices were also posted on site.  Two objections from residents and a petition were received.

There were also other restrictions on Bolsover Road and at the Bolsover/Scotter Road junction included in the order.  No objections had been received in response to these.

Resolved – (a) That the introduction of the Traffic Regulation Order, as shown on the plans at Appendix 1 to the report, be approved, and (b) that officers write to the objectors advising them of the decision, following the normal statutory procedure.

81                (28) TRAFFIC REGULATION ORDER – 7.5 TONNE WEIGHT LIMIT, THEALBY – The Director of Places submitted a report considering two objections received by the council to the proposed 7.5 tonne weight restrictions on the B1430 and C107.

Residents of Thealby had requested a weight restriction to stop vehicles travelling between the A1077 and Normanby Enterprise Park.  This was a long standing issue.

Following these requests, officers had carried out investigations into the number of HGVs that were using the road.  Officers had also carried out site visits to see what companies were using the road.

The proposed restrictions would mean that any vehicle travelling to or from Hull/Barton on the A1077 to any industrial estates to the north of Scunthorpe would need to continue on the A1077 through Winterton.

Letters were delivered to those businesses in the area that could require HGV access.  Notices were posted on site and advertised in the Scunthorpe Telegraph.  Two objections were received, one from a local landowner and the second from Humberside Police.

Resolved – (a) That the introduction of the Traffic Regulation Order, as shown on the plans at Appendix 1 to the report, be approved, and (b) that officers write to the objectors advising them of the decision, following the normal statutory procedure.
