Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Decision:

To retain the experimental cycle lane on Evening Hill and to investigate provision of a pedestrian crossing and disabled parking spaces to mitigate the impact.

(NOTE: The Council has delayed releasing this decision so that the proposed mitigation could be further developed and presented in concert.  It is noted that the proposed mitigation will be subject to further consultation as part of the statutory Traffic Regulation Order and Noticing processes.)

Reasons for the decision:

The Service Director has considered the results of consultation to date, has considered the evidence he has received relating to operation of the lane and the wider implications for the traffic network and considers that the experimental cycle lane should be retained.

During the course of the experiment concerns have been raised about the accessibility to the adjacent popular recreational area and viewing point and to mitigate these concerns the Council will investigate provision of a pedestrian crossing and disabled parking spaces.
