The council is proposing to change the ‘Part Time’ shared use bays in Brisbane Avenue to Shared Use bays. This will allow permit holders to utilise these bays at all times, whilst still providing two hours maximum stay to pay & display customers.
What happens next
Statutory consultation is required prior to any decision to proceed to implementation. This is the legal part of the process and requires the introduction of Traffic Management Order (TMO), which will enable the Council to change and enforce traffic or parking regulations. The statutory Notice will be published in the London Gazette and one local newspaper circulated in the area. In addition to this, the Council will post Notices in the affected streets and deliver newsletters to local residents and traders.
The Notice informs residents and businesses in the affected area of the proposed measures and how members of the public can submit written representations regarding the proposals. Representation must be made in writing to:
Head of Street Scene and Waste, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5DX by no later than 24 August 2012, quoting reference
The Council will consider all representations prior to proceeding further.
A copy of the proposed TMO, a plan identifying the areas affected by the proposals and the Council’s Statement of Reasons can be inspected at the Merton Link, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, during the Council’s normal office hours Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
The result of the consultation along with officers’ recommendations will be presented in a report to the Cabinet Member for Environmental Sustainability and Regeneration. Once a decision is made you will be informed accordingly. Please note that responses to any representations received will not be made until a final decision is made.
