On 10 November Cllr John Fairclough, Deputy Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member - Locality Services will be asked to give approval for the introduction of Traffic Regulation Orders at various locations in Formby Village.
He will consider two reports, an extract from one of these is shown below.
Following objections to the introduction of car parking charges on Sumner Road car park, it was agreed with Ward Members and Parish Councillors, that officers would carry out a comprehensive parking survey prior to the introduction of the parking charges. This was done in September 2015.
A second survey was carried out in April 2017, once parking patterns had settled down, in order to establish whether there had been any displacement of parking following the car park charges. In both surveys, special attention was also given to several areas where complaints had already been received, regarding obstructive and dangerous parking.
The purpose of this report is to highlight whether any parking has been displaced, following the introduction of the charges, and to evaluate whether any roads within the study area required additional waiting restrictions.
Results of Surveys
In both surveys, parking surveys were carried out on a Tuesday at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Any vehicle parked within the study area was noted...... In addition to the location of the parked vehicles, an assessment was made at the time by the surveyor, as to whether the positioning of the vehicles resulted in any obstruction/congestion.
In addition to identifying the location of any on-street parking, the surveyors also quantified the number of vehicles in each of the three car parks.......
As ..... usage of the Sumner Road car park has remained almost at capacity, despite the charges being introduced, and none of the parking has been displaced into surrounding roads.
A number of locations which were initially raised as concerns, still remain a concern and require various waiting restrictions in order to remove the congestion and improve safety.
It is proposed, therefore, to introduce a number of waiting restrictions on:-
