Bramley parking restriction objections rejected by highways officers

Decision: Leeds Civic Hall.

Four objections to council proposals to implement parking restrictions to improve access and the safe passage of traffic in Bramley have been rejected by highways officers.

In a report published this week, council officers agreed to press ahead with the new restrictions on a raft of streets in Bramley & Stanningley ward, despite four objections from residents living in then Astons area, including the need for double le yellow lines on all back streets.

The council report said the scheme would restore sight lines for vehicles exiting junctions/private drives and prevent vehicles from parking in ways that cause obstructions, delays, or safety issues on the public highway, including refuse collection.

Officers acknowledged the negative impacts of the scheme included possible displacement of a small number of vehicles throughout the area as parking is removed, but they say ‘this negative is mitigated by the safety benefits’.

Streets affected by the scheme across the ward include: Ashdown Street, Aston Avenue, Aston Drive, Aston Grove, Aston Mount, Aston Place, Aston Road, Aston Street, Aston Terrace, Aston View, Back Aston Place, Back Aston Road, Back Aston Street, Back Aston Terrace, Back Aston View, Back Highfield Road, Bath Grove, Broad Lane, Church Hill Mount, Coal Hill Lane, Cross Aston Grove, Cross Eric Street, Eightlands Lane, Fairfield Mount, Fairfield Mount (Service Road North Of Stanningley Road), Fernbank Road, Glenlea Gardens, Half Mile Close, Half Mile Court, Half Mile Lane, Highfield Road, Intake Lane, Landseer Close, Landseer Green, Leeds And Bradford Road, Moorland View, Newlay Lane, Outgang, Pollard Lane, Raynville Road, Rock Lane, Rodley Lane, Rossefield Avenue, Rossefield Chase, Rossefield Drive, Rossefield Place, Rossefield Terrace, Rossefield Way, Snowden Close, Snowden Crescent, Snowden Royd, Snowden Vale, Town Street, Valley Rise, Valley Road, Waterloo Lane, Wellington Grove and Westminster Drive.

The scheme will now go ahead as originally advertised.
