To consider the introduction of parking
restrictions in Bay Road, Bullbrook.
i. That the formal objections received during the statutory consultation process and the corresponding Officer comments are noted.

iii. That the Borough Solicitor be authorised to make the Traffic Regulation Order in relation to the proposals detailed on the following plan numbers:
5172/003 – Bay Road - Proposed Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) (Annex A)
There are currently a series of priority chicanes on the road which were introduced a number of years ago by the previous Highway Authority, Berkshire County Council. However, since implementation, car ownership has grown which has increased parking pressure in the area. On-street parking has been observed around the existing chicanes which causes both road safety and congestion issues.
Not to install the waiting restrictions would result in the continuing safety and obstruction issues.
Wards Affected: Bullbrook;
Financial Impact: Within existing budget.
Subject to Urgent Proceedings: No
