The report before the Committee recommended safety improvements in the Suttons Lane and Airfield Way areas.
Following a public consultation it was agreed that a pedestrian refuges, build-out extension, 30mph and school vehicle activated signs and road markings to reduce the casualty rate along the street be implemented.
A Member raised concerns that the build-out extension outside property No. 51 Suttons Lane would impact on traffic flow.
Following a debate and a motion to recommend rejection of the proposed build-out extension outside property No. 51 Suttons Lane with approval of the remaining parts of the scheme, the Committee RESOLVED to recommend to the Cabinet Member for Environment, in consultation with the Leader of the Council, that the following safety improvements detailed in the drawing be implemented:
(a) Suttons Lane between Dawes Avenue and Randall Drive:
- Pedestrian refuge with double yellow lines outside Sainsbury’s Local;
- Longer traffic island outside property Nos. 47 and 49 Suttons Lane;
- Parking bays relocation outside property Nos. 47, 49, 53, 55 Suttons Lane;
- 30mph vehicle activated sign;
- Centre line hatch and slow road markings;
as shown on drawing reference No.QS002/1.
(b) Suttons Lane between Vaughan Avenue and Suttons Primary School south entrance:
- School vehicle activated signs and coloured road surfacing south of Vaughan Avenue and School south entrance as shown on drawing No.QS002/2.
(c) Airfield Way in the vicinity of Tangmere Crescent:
- School vehicle activated signs north and south of Tangmere Crescent as shown on drawing No.QS002/3.
That it be noted that the estimated cost of the scheme was £0.070m, which would be met from the Transport for London’s (TfL) 2019/20 Local Implementation Plan allocation for Casualty Reduction.
The voting to proceed with the scheme but rejecting the build out was carried by four votes to two.
The Committee considered the report and without debate RESOLVED to recommend to the Cabinet Member for Environment in consultation with the Leader of the Council that:
(a) the proposals to introduce a residents parking scheme in the Grenfell Avenue area, operational Monday to Friday 10am to 2pm inclusive, as shown on the plan in Appendix C be abandoned;
(b) the proposed ‘At Any Time’ waiting restrictions, proposed Pay & Display parking provision and proposed Loading Bay be implemented as advertised and shown in Appendix E be implemented.
Members noted that the estimated cost of the fully implemented proposals, including all physical measures and advertising costs was £0.004m which would be met from the LIP 2018/2019 funding allocation – A2904 (funding carried over).
