A representative of the Strategic Head of Service and Monitoring Officer (Legal and Democratic Governance) submitted a report of the Corporate Director (Place) and Deputy Chief Executive (copies of which had been circulated) setting out a proposal to introduce No Waiting at Any Time restrictions at the junction of Brown Lane/Fernlea and Brandon Avenue, Heald Green.
The following comments were made/issues raised:
· Members requested that the proposed Traffic Regulation Order be revised so that the No Waiting at Any Time on Fernlea be extended by a further 10 metres on both sides to make it easier for motorists entering and exiting the road as the junction was narrow and bottlenecks occurred.
RESOLVED – (1) That the Corporate Director (Place) and Deputy Chief Executive be requested to amend the proposed Traffic Regulation Order so that the No Waiting At Any Time on Fernlea be extended by a further 10 metres on both sides.
(2) That residents be reconsulted on the amended proposal in (1) above and the outcome reported back to the Area Committee.
