c) amend the school keep clear markings in Cherry Garden Lane and St Annes Drive in favour of the measures in items a) and b) above. 

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 Cadbury Heath Public Library where they may be inspected, free of charge, during normal library opening hours.

On 5 December 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 members and officers see value in progressing the proposed waiting restriction review. It is therefore recommended that the proposed Bitton waiting restriction review scheme should be implemented as advertised, with the exception of; a 3m length of double yellow line adjacent to an existing dropped kerb, outside No. 2 Church Road.
  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 reasons for the decision are contained in the Director’s Report, a copy of which may be obtained by contacting 01454 868004.

At the present time, we do not have a date when the work will take place and therefore cannot advise when the order will be sealed.

Consultation Topic
  • Local highways and transportation projects
  • Transportation planning & policy
Geographical area
  • Bitton and Oldland Common
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.
