On 5 October 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. Both local members and officers see value in progressing the Prohibition of Driving, Waiting Restrictions and Speed limit as advertised in Aust Wharf (Old Passage Road) Aust. Therefore it is recommended that the scheme is implemented as advertised.
  2. To advise the objectors accordingly.
  3. That the Head of Legal Governance and Democratic Services be authorised to make and seal the Prohibition of Driving order, Waiting Restriction order and the Speed limit order for Aust Wharf (Old Passage Road).

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

The orders are to be made on 26 October 2022 and will become operative on 7 November 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.
