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 Magnolia Gardens and Primrose Bank, Oldham which was approved under delegated powers on 6 March 2023. The proposal was subsequently advertised and nineteen representations were received.


Fifteen objections were received from residents, businesses and customers of businesses located on Primrose Bank. Two objections as well as two supporting letters were received from residents of Magnolia Gardens.


If the Panel was to consider relaxing the proposed scheme, then it was the view of officers that the restrictions proposed in the main areas of concern should remain. These are around the perimeter of the play area and at the junction of Magnolia Gardens and Primrose Bank. Restrictions should also be considered on one side of Primrose Bank to increase forward visibility and improve traffic flows.


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 consider whether the proposed parking restrictions can be reduced in extent.




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