Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To inform the Cabinet Member of investigations undertaken following the receipt of a petition requesting the Council, Nigel Mills MP and Trent Barton Bus Company to reinstate the 1A Service through Waingroves and to investigate and implement measures to reduce through traffic in Waingroves

Decision:

            That the Cabinet Member

 

a)   Notes the investigations undertaken following the receipt of a petition requesting that Derbyshire County Council, Nigel Mills MP, and Trent Barton Bus Company reinstate the 1A Bus Service through Waingroves, Ripley, and investigate and implement measures to reduce through traffic in Waingroves.

b)  Notes the alternative service provision that has been put in place by the Council.

c)  Notes the options considered by officers to alleviate concerns and to take further action as recommended.

d)   Notes that the Council is promoting a Traffic Regulation Order to introduce waiting restrictions at identified strategic points along Waingroves Road/Church Street. The order is currently at the stage where comments and objections are being considered through an Officer delegated scheme of approval at the Council.

Reasons for the decision:

          The location does not the meet the criteria within the Speed Management Plan and Highway Network Management Plan for consideration of further traffic calming measures.

 

          Previous local engagement resulted in a community-based decision to request the removal of the formerly installed traffic calming measures that were in situ on Waingroves Road.

 

          The Council is already considering placing yellow lines on Waingroves Road and Church Street which will enable the local community to make their formal representations as part of the consultation process.

 

Alternative options considered:

The location does not meet the criteria within the Speed Management Plan or Highway Network Management Plan regarding the consideration of alternative traffic calming measures, such as vertical measures like chicanes based on the lack of an evidenced personal injury collision history.
