15/06/2022 - To undertake consultations on the proposal to introduce waiting restrictions on Anchor Lane, Hemel Hempstead and on Beechfield Road, Hemel Hempstead and to delegate the decision to introduce the restrictions, if applicable, to the Head of Commercial

Decision made and reasons:

 

To engage consultants (ADL Highways and Traffic Engineering) to undertake consultations on the proposal to:

 

1.    To revoke the No Waiting ‘Mon-Fri 8.30am to 4.30pm’ (Single Yellow Line) restriction on Anchor Lane near to the junction with Heath Lane, and replace with the introduction of No Waiting at Any Time (Double Yellow Lines) restrictions, please see the map below:

 

 

2.    To introduce additional no waiting at any time (Double Yellow Lines) at the junction of Beechfield Road and Anchor Lane the request is to prevent parking close to or on the mini roundabout and to prevent inappropriate verge parking on Beechfield Road, please see the map below:



3.    To delegate the decision to undertake a statutory consultation and implement the restriction, if applicable, to the Head of Commercial Development in consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Commercial Strategy & Delivery.

 

The reason for the decision is to deter inappropriate parking by parents at school drop off and pick up times and to prevent inappropriate and dangerous parking by residents parking on the grass verge adjacent to their residences on Beechfield Road

 

Having considered the duty imposed under section 122 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, It appears to the local authority that it is necessary and expedient to make an Order in the interests of:

 

·         avoiding danger to persons or other traffic using the road or any other road or for preventing the likelihood of any such danger arising

 

·         facilitating the passage on the road or any other road of any class of traffic (including pedestrians)

 

 

 

Decision Maker: Portfolio Holder for Commercial Strategy and Delivery
