At a Decision Meeting on 14 September, the council’s Executive Member for Planning & Transport, Cllr Ian Gillies, approved the installation of double yellow lines at a number of locations. These measures will now be advertised, with the opportunity for residents to object if they wish to.
The report that sets out the proposed double yellow lines is available Here. The locations where double yellow lines were approved are:
- Junction of Cherry Lane and St Edwards Close (see map below)
- Junction of Ainsty Avenue and Mayfield Grove
- Junction of Nelsons Lane and Breary Close
- Moorcroft Road, from the doctors surgery to first junction with Bramble Dene
However a number of additional schemes which local ward councillors had supported were turned down:
- Moor Lane, near the entrance to Chapmans Pond
- North Lane, near junction with Jervis Road
- Junction of Acorn Way and Wharfe Drive
- Moorcroft Road, in front of the dentists
Cllr Ann Reid spoke at the meeting to ask Cllr Gillies to include these additional schemes, but to no avail.
The parking restrictions proposed for the junction of Mayfield Grove and Aintree Court were approved at a Decision Session of the Executive Member for Planning & Transport on 12th May.
The printed decision sheet from the meeting is available Here.
The move was prompted by concerns raised about the impact of parking on or near the junction by visitors to Railway Pond and problematic parking around school drop-off and pick-up times.
Local Lib Dem councillor Stephen Fenton has welcomed action taken to enforce parking restrictions at the entrance to the Revival estate off Tadcaster Road. More double yellow lines are planned to be installed following a recent public consultation. The measures are in response to dangerous and inconsiderate parking.
Stephen is also in touch with council officers, who are in turn in contact with the developers and management company, about the irresponsible parking in front of the emergency access gates in the corner of Masters Mews.
We are pleased to report that there have been no objections to the recently advertised Traffic Regulation Order proposals for the Revival estate off Tadcaster Road.
A works order for the additional lengths of yellow line to be put down will be issued shortly. However as the work is quite weather dependent there is not yet a firm date for when this work will take place.
We will keep residents informed as the timescale becomes clearer.
