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 Hanham Public Library and at Kingswood One Stop Shop where they may be inspected, free of charge, during normal opening hours.

On 4 July 2019 the Director of Environment 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 the following decision was taken:

  1. Both the local member and officers see value in progressing the proposed waiting restrictions. It is therefore recommended that the proposed 20mph speed limit, speed tables and speed cushions in Hanham should be implemented as advertised.
  2. That the Head of Legal Governance and Democratic Services be authorised to seal the Traffic Regulation Orders.
  3. That the objectors are informed accordingly.

The Director of Environment and Community Services Decision relating to this matter may viewed online at www.southglos.gov.uk. The reasons for the decision are contained in the Director’s Report, a copy of which may be obtained by contacting 01454 868004.

The order is to be made on 10 October 2019, to become operative on 18 November 2019 . 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.
