The Planning, Environment and Strategic Environment Sub Committee met on 3 September 2014 to consider objections and comments received in response to the advertisement of the above matter.  After carefully considering these objections together with the comments the following decision was taken by the Committee: 


1.         The proposed waiting restrictions in the Stoke Gifford area should be implemented with minor revisions indicated in Appendix A of the officer report


2.         That the Head of Legal Governance and Democratic Services be authorised to seal the Traffic Regulation Orders for the waiting restrictions, with the appropriate revisions.


3.         That the objectors are informed accordingly.


The report relating to this matter may be viewed here.

The order was made on 22 October 2014, and will become operative on 17 November 2014. A public notice will appear in the local Press shortly.

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
Target Audience
  • All residents
  • General public
