FILTON Proposed Gating Order Rear Access Lanes to Sixth Avenue, Seventh Avenue, Eighth Avenue & Ninth Avenue,

The Council is proposing to make a Gating Order using powers under Section 129A of the Highways Act 1980.  This will restrict public access to the rear access lanes serving Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue.  It will also affect the rear access lane behind 487-549 Filton Avenue, odd numbered properties 1-25 Ninth Avenue, and even numbered properties 2-72 Eighth Avenue.

The proposed Gating Order is requested on the basis of reducing crime and anti-social behaviour.  Data submitted by the police show elevated levels of crime and anti-social behaviour.  There are also elevated levels of environmental crime.   

If the proposed Gating Order is made, keys will be provided to affected landowners, utilities and emergency services.  A  Gating Order does not affect the highway status of the land, and Council policy requires that it must be reviewed on at least an annual basis to ensure it is still appropriate to restrict access.

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
