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 in July 2017, the Council is now making arrangements for the implementation of the yellow line restrictions in Deer Park Gardens, notices will be erected on-site to advise of street works. Please see the following web links to view the Cabinet Member decision sheet and the report detailing the feedback from the statutory consultation.
Statutory consultation 21 September – 13 October 2017
Due to reports received from residents and Ward Councillors regarding obstructive parking in Deer Park Gardens the Council is carrying out a statutory consultation on its intention to introduce 'at any time' waiting restrictions (double yellow lines). See the following web link to view a layout plan of the proposal.
The proposed waiting restriction measures aim to improve safety, visibility and provide clear access for all road users, this is particularly important for emergency service vehicles (ambulance and fire engines) and the council's refuse collection service vehicles.
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 newspaper (The Guardian), London Gazette and posted on lamp columns in the vicinity. Representations for and against the proposals must be by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to the Head of Sustainable Communities, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5DX by no later than 13 October 2017 quoting reference ES/WRDEERPARKGARDENS.
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.
