The Council proposes to make an order that will:- 

a) remove the right turn prohibition onto Kennedy Way that currently affects Heron Way, to permit all vehicles to carry out the manoeuvre;

b) bring forward unchanged into the new order the current prohibition of ‘U’ Turns that affects Kennedy Way; between Scott Way/Link Road roundabout and Heron Way; and

c) revoke the County Council of Avon (Heron Way and Kennedy Way, Chipping Sodbury, District of Northavon) (Prohibition of Right Turn) (Prohibition of 'U' Turn) Order 1994, as varied, in favour of the measures specified in item a) and item b) above.

Full details of the proposals are contained in the draft order. If you would like to see a copy of the draft order, a map, any orders to be varied/revoked and a statement of the Council's reasons for making the order, you may do so by viewing the documents section of this consultation.

On 3 August 2022 the Executive Director of Place acting under Delegated Authority considered the objections and comments received in response to the advertisement of the above proposed traffic order. After carefully considering these objections together with the comments the following decision was taken:

  1. SGC officers see value in progressing with the revocation of the turning existing restrictions at the Kennedy Way/Heron Way junction. There was only one local member to respond who also supported the scheme. It is therefore recommended that the existing TRO is revoked and the existing U-turn prohibition on Kennedy Way should be implemented as advertised.
  1. That the Head of Legal Governance and Democratic Services be authorised to seal the Traffic Regulation Orders.
  1. That the objectors are informed accordingly.

The Executive Director of Place Decision relating to this matter may be viewed on the documents pages of this consultation.

The order is to be made on 14 September 2022 and will become operative on 26 September 2022. Accordingly, a public notice will appear in the local newspaper shortly after the order is made.

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.
