Is subject to call in?: Yes


To consider the introduction and removal of disabled parking bays in various residential roads in Crown Wood, Great Hollands North & South, Little Sandhurst & Wellington, Old Bracknell, Priestwood & Garth and Wildridings & Central.


i.       That the formal objections received during the statutory consultation process and the corresponding Officer comments are noted;


ii.     That the position with regard to local ward Members comments received during the informal consultation process is noted;


iii.    That the Borough Solicitor be authorised to bring the Disabled Parking Spaces Order into effect.


Reasons for the decision:

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.

Alternative options considered:

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
