Decision details

Objections to Proposed Prohibition of Waiting – Delph New Road Area, Delph

Decision Maker: Highway Regulation Committee

Decision status: Item Deferred

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Panel gave consideration to a report considering representations received about the proposed introduction of Prohibition of Waiting restrictions at Delph New Road, Oldham Road and Station Approach, Delph


In total, fifteen representations were received. Four representations were received from residents of Station Approach, ten were received from Gatehead Business Park and one from a resident on Oldham Road.

Officers considered the comments but as the proposal was for prohibition of waiting restrictions, which still allowed loading and unloading, officers believed that the restrictions should be introduced as advertised.


In summary, Officers considered the comments made by the business park and have proposed a relaxation to the scheme. On the south side to the west of the business park it was proposed to leave an 85-metre gap in the restrictions. The amended proposal would protect the bend and junctions whilst preserving around 17 on-street parking spaces for use by the business park, which was the focus of the objections.


The Panel gave consideration to the representations received relating to the introduction of Prohibition of Waiting restrictions at Delph New Road, Oldham Road and Station Approach, Delph


It was recommended that the proposals be introduced as advertised or as per the amended plan shown in Appendix C of the report.


Options considered:

Option 1: To approve the recommendation

Option 2: Not to approve the recommendation


RESOLVED that, consideration of the proposals be deferred to a future meeting of the Panel to enable Officers to investigate the provision of additional parking spaces as part of the proposals. 




An Objector attended the meeting and addressed the Panel on this application.
