i. The formal objections received during the statutory consultation process
and the corresponding Officer comments are noted.
ii. The position with regard to local ward Members comments received during
the informal consultation process are noted.
iii. The Borough Solicitor be authorised to bring the Disabled Parking Spaces Order into effect.
To continue the Councils policy of marking out disabled parking bays in residential
streets that are heavily parked and where disabled people may have trouble in finding a parking space close enough to where they live without experiencing real difficulty in getting from their car to their home.
To not install the disabled bays would result in the applicants continuing to
experience difficulty in getting to and from their vehicle. To not remove un-needed
disabled parking bays would leave parking spaces unused that could relieve parking
pressures in the area.
