To consider a Petition for traffic calming to be installed in Gore Park Road. The petition was submitted to the County Council on 5 February 2019.


5.1       The Lead Member considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport.




5.2       The Lead Member RESOLVED to advise the petitioners that (1) a traffic calming scheme for Gore Park Road is not a priority for the County Council at the present time; and


(2) a safety survey of the condition of the footway and carriageway in Gore Park Road has been carried out.



5.3       The current condition of Gore Park Road was inspected by the Local Highway Steward on 21 February.  The inspection identified four areas of pavement posing a trip hazard to users, two potholes and two drain covers that needed to be reset.  These repairs were carried out within 28 days.  Gore Park Road is inspected on six-monthly basis as part of the routine safety inspection. 


5.4       Appropriate improvements could be considered should an alternative source of income become available or if an application through the Community Match Fund was successful. In order to determine what measures could be suitable, it is suggested that residents contact the Borough Council to assist with the commissioning of a Feasibility Study, which will identify possible improvements and provide an estimate of potential costs.
