Access group 6

In line with the streamlined process for this type of change, formal consultation took place in January and February 2022. As there were less than five objections to each location, they were shared with the local county councillors, borough councillors and chair of the Joint Transportation Board to seek their agreement to either set aside the objections or to refer the objections to the board for consideration. There was no consensus by the chair and local members for any of the locations, although councillors for Vauxhall ward did submit their agreement for proposals in their ward.

The objections were then referred to elected borough councillors at the 7 March 2022 Joint Transportation Board meeting . Where the Cabinet Member for Technical and Waste Services agreed with the recommendations that the Board set aside the objections and agree the implementation of the proposals.

When the Traffic Regulation Order has been signed and sealed, and any necessary signs and lines have been installed, the new parking restrictions can be enforced. Please note that lining work is weather dependant, and we are unable to provide a date for when these works will take place at any location.
