On 25 September 2020 the Director of Environment and Community Services acting under Delegated Authority considered the objections and comments received in response to the advertisement of the proposed traffic order.  After carefully considering these objections together with the comments the following decision was taken:

1. That the Yate Town Centre Waiting Restrictions should be implemented with two amendments:-

    a) That the proposed single yellow lines in Broadway only operate Monday to Friday 8-10am and 2-4 pm; and

    b) That the proposed double yellows across the driveway of No 78 Firgrove Crescent be removed from the proposals leaving a 

        gap in the waiting restrictions of 5m.

2. That the Head of Legal Governance and Democratic Services be authorised to seal the Traffic Regulation Order.

3.  That objectors are informed accordingly.

The Director of Environment and Community Services Decision relating to this matter may viewed in the consultation pages of this scheme.

The order is to be made on 13 January 2021 and will become operative on 13 April 2021. 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.
