To consider a petition submitted to the Oldham District Executive from the residents of Poppy Road and Scoltock Way requesting measures to be introduced to alleviate parking problems and anti-social behaviour problems within their streets.

 

Minutes:

The Panel considered a report concerning a petition from the residents of Poppy Road and Scoltock Way. Residents had requested measures to be introduced to alleviate parking problems and anti-social behaviour problems in their streets. The petition had been submitted to the Oldham District Executive that had decided to take no action. Therefore, residents had submitted their petition to this Panel for further consideration.

 

A letter had been received from the Lead Petitioner informing that she could not be present at today’s session. 

 

The Traffic and Network Service Delivery Manager listed the criteria for residents only parking schemes. None of the streets in question currently met those criteria.

 

Members sought and received clarification on any alternative parking solutions.

 

RESOLVED that:

  1. No action be taken in respect of the petitioners’ request.
  2. The Lead Petitioner be informed accordingly.
