Objections to the Proposed Prohibition of Waiting - Unnamed Access Road off Manor Road, Oldham pdf icon PDF 2 MB

To consider two letters of objection to introduce a Prohibition of Waiting along the un-named access road between property numbers 18-20 Manor Road, Oldham

Minutes:

The Panel gave consideration to a report regarding objections received to the introduction of double yellow lines along the un-named access road between property number 18-20 Manor Road, Oldham.

 

Complaints had been received from local residents that the un-named access road that lead to the rear of the properties was regularly used as a convenient parking place that prevented vehicular access to the properties on Manor Road and Abbey Hills Road. Observations confirmed that parking on the site was problematic.

 

The proposal had been approved under delegated powers on 21st October 2019 and subsequently advertised. Two letters of objection had been received from local residents. The basis of the objections was that the proposal could be amended and restrictions be introduced along one side of the un-named access road only (along the gable of number 18).

 

In light of the objection, it was acknowledged that on-street parking within the Manor Road area was at a premium. However the introduction of double yellow lines would remove obstructions for highway users and would cause less safety problems on the highway.

 

Options Considered.

Option 1: approve the proposal.

Option 2: rescind the proposal.

 

RESOLVED that, notwithstanding the objections received, the double yellow lines be introduced as detailed in the report.
