Simon Moss, Assistant Director, Planning, Regeneration and Transport

Specific Delegation:

(If any)

The Strategic Director of Regeneration and Environment Sub-Scheme of Delegation authorises the Assistant Director - To promote, consider objections to and implement Traffic Regulation Orders under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984.

Brief Description of Decision:

1.    That the comments and objections are noted

2.    A zebra crossing be installed at a location as shown on drawing No 126/17/TT546 (Appendix 2)

3.    Residents are informed of the decision.

Reasons for the Decision:

Following the outcome of statutory public consultation for a crossing (identified in Appendix 1), an alternative location (identified in Appendix 2) for the proposed zebra is recommended following further consultion.


Details of alternative options considered and rejected:

Two alternative locations for the crossing closer to the junction with Wadsworth Road were considered. These are shown on drawing 126/17/TT546 attached as Appendix 2.

Further informal consultations were undertaken regarding the location marked as “1” on Appendix 2, however the following objections were received: -

·       The proposed crossing is too close to a residential property, which would be affected by the flashing belisha beacons.

·       Drivers exiting Wadsworth Road may not see pedestrians on the crossing.

·       Elderly residents from The Lings would have difficulties crossing Wadsworth Road.

·       Pedestrians on the south side of Wadsworth Road may still not use the crossing, when walking to the Broadlands estate.


A further location marked as “2” on Appendix 2 was also investigated, but this was rejected due to the presence of Statutory Undertakers apparatus in the road surface, and a number of large telecoms cabinets located in the grass verge on the east side of Flash Lane.


Conflicts of interest declared by any Executive Member consulted by the decision maker which relates to the decision:
