South Gloucestershire Council proposes to make an order the effect of which will be to change the hours of operation in the car park located on land at LONGS DRIVE, Yate from an operative time of 8am to 6pm, Monday to Saturday, 2 hours, no return within 1 hour to a new operative time of 8am to 6pm, Monday to Saturday, 4 hours, no return within 6 hours.

Full details of the proposal, together with a plan, a statement of the Council's reasons for making the order, a copy of the draft order, and any order(s) to be varied or revoked have been deposited at Yate Public Library where they may be inspected, free of charge, during normal library opening hours.

The statutory period for representation has closed.  

The Director of Environment, Planning and Community Services, 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, Decision ECS41/2018 was taken on 29 October 2018:

“1.            Both the local member and officers see value in progressing the proposed waiting restrictions. It is therefore recommended that the proposed waiting restrictions in the Longs Drive car park in Yate 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.“

Decision ECS41/2018 relating to this matter may be viewed in the documents section below. 

The order is to be made on 5 December 2018, and will become operative on 28 January 2019. A public notice will appear in the local Press 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.
Target Audience
  • All residents
  • General public
