Report of the Acting Chief Officer for Highways, Infrastructure Development and Waste (HIW/17/70), attached.

Minutes:

The Committee noted the Report of the Chief Officer for Highways, Infrastructure Development and Waste (HIW/17/70) on the process for a full review of the traffic sensitive streets network across the county to be completed by 1 April 2018. When a street was designated ‘Traffic Sensitive’, timings of street works could be better regulated to ensure free flow of traffic so far as was reasonably practicable (i.e. no works on major roads during peak morning and afternoon traffic flows) under powers conferred by the Traffic Management Act 2004/Section 59 New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 to co-ordinate works activities on the road network.

 

Members’ views on proposed designations could be discussed with the Highways Neighbourhood Team prior to public consultation.
