Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Environment

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The introduction of the Zebra Pedestrian Crossing as outlined in this report and detailed in Appendix A is approved and that the Assistant Chief Executive (Legal and Democratic Services) be authorised to allow the proposed introduction of the Zebra Pedestrian Crossing as identified in Appendix A, (subject to the amendments and recommendations approved by the Corporate Director of Environment in consultation with the Executive Member for Highways & Transportation in light of the objections received) and that the objectors are notified within 14 days of the decision.

Reasons for the decision:

Implementation of the proposed Zebra Pedestrian Crossing is considered will enable the Council to comply with its duties under Section 122 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 to exercise its function as road traffic authority to secure the expeditious, convenient and safe movement of vehicular and other traffic (including pedestrians).

Alternative options considered:

The introduction of formalised single line working for traffic through the narrow section of road to allow an appropriately dimensioned footway to be provided on each side was considered. There is however insufficient road width to allow this. Section 2.0 of the report applies.
