21 June 2017 Cabinet Member approval
Following approval by the Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Environment and Housing to proceed with the implementation of the proposed waiting restrictions as consulted from 19th January to 10th February 2017, the Council is now making arrangement for the implementation of the yellow line restrictions on-site within the next 4 weeks.
Please see the following web link to view the Cabinet Member decision and report detailing the feedback from the statutory consultation.
19 January 2017 Statutory consultation
Officers have received complaints and concerns raised by local ward members and the local residents regarding obstructive and dangerous parking at several other junctions within the area of the proposals. Due to the requests for waiting restrictions and consideration for a proactive stance to protect other junctions, it has been necessary to group these requests with the intention of undertaking an area wide statutory consultation.
Scheme layout - Ashridge Way, Hillcross Avenue, Leamington Avenue, Arundel Avenue
Scheme layout - Cherrywood Lane and Northway areas
The statutory consultation period begins on Thursday 19th January 2017 until Friday 10th February 2017.
What happens next
A Notice of the Council's intensions to make the relevant Traffic Management Orders (TMO) for the required changes will be published in the local news paper (The Guardian), London Gazette and posted on lamp columns in the vicinity. Representations for and against the proposals must be done in writing to the Head of Sustainable Communities, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5DX or email firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than 10 February 2017 quoting reference ES/WRASHRIDGE
Objections must relate only to the elements of the scheme that are subject to this statutory consultation. The Council is required to give weight to the nature and content of your representations and not necessarily the quantity. Your reasons are therefore important to us.
All representations along with Officers' comments and recommendations will be presented in a report to the Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Environment and Housing. Please note that responses to any representations received will not be made until a final decision is made by the Cabinet Member. Once a decision is made by the Cabinet Member the public will be informed accordingly.
Copies of the proposed Traffic Management Order (TMO), a plan identifying the area affected by the proposal and the Council's 'statement of reasons' can be inspected at the Merton Link, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, between Monday to Fridays, 10am to 4pm.
