Petition for traffic calming in the Northampton Way/Norfolk Drive/Kent Road and Lincoln Close area of St Leonards on Sea. A petition was submitted to the County Council on 11 October 2022 and needs to be considered by Lead Member for Transport & Environment.
53.1 The Lead Member considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport, together with written representation from the Local Member, Councillor Phil Scott, outlining the Local Member’s and Lead Petitioner’s views on the report.
53.2 The Lead Member RESOLVED to advise the petitioners that:
(1) A potential scheme to implement a traffic calming or speed reduction scheme in and around Kent Road has been assessed through the approved High Level Sift process and is not a priority for the County Council at the present time; and
(2) Petitioners may wish to consider taking a potential scheme forward through Community Match. A Feasibility Study (at a cost of £500) and speed data (at a cost of £422 per site) would be required prior to a Community Match application.
53.3 A scheme to implement traffic calming or speed reduction measures in the Kent Road area of St Leonards is not presently a priority for funding from the County Council’s budget.
53.4 Appropriate improvements could be considered should an alternative source of income become available or an application through Community Match is successful.
