The Cabinet Member for Travel & Development Strategy RESOLVED:
a) Not to approve the proposed prohibition of entry from the A40 to the easternmost access of Sunderland Avenue (south side) and Blandford Avenue;
b) To approve in principle the traffic calming measures in Davenant Road as advertised subject to a further local consultation on the detailed design when resources are found to carry out the required design work; and
c) Officers be requested to consider the issues of HGV traffic, speeding and use of area as a ‘rat run’ as part of wider transport planning initiatives impacting upon the area.
The Cabinet Member for Highway Management agreed to defer this item as it was in his division and he was unable to arrange for another member of the Cabinet to take the Chair to make a decision on this item.
