THE VALE OF GLAMORGAN COUNCIL
PLANNING COMMITTEE: 2ND FEBRUARY, 2012
REFERENCE FROM CABINET: 18TH JANUARY, 2012
"C1592 TRINITY STREET AND ROMILLY ROAD, BARRY - PROPOSED EXPERIMENTAL TRAFFIC REGULATION ORDER - RESPONSE TO PUBLIC CONSULTATION EXERCISE (VBS) (SCRUTINY - ECONOMY AND ENVIRONMENT) -
90 responses had been received from residents in response to the public consultation exercise, 40 being in favour of the proposed Experimental Order and 50 against. There were no responses from businesses.
In addition to the indication of support or not to the proposal, various comments had been received as shown in paragraph 10 of the report. Of the 38 responses from residents in Trinity Street, 30 were in favour of the proposal; of the 4 responses received from Romilly Road residents, 3 were in favour.
Implementing traffic management changes on a trial basis allowed real data to be collected and allowed the travelling public to take a more informed view of the change through the benefit of actual experience. Given in this case the poor response from the public consultation and the absence of a decisive result, consideration was given as to whether any further action should be taken at either location at the current time. Members noted that officers would continue to monitor speed and accident data at those locations and, if there were a requirement in the future to undertake any traffic modelling work for the west end of Barry, the management of those streets and others in the vicinity would be reconsidered.
This was a matter for Executive decision.
(1) T H A T the report be noted.
(2) T H A T no further action be taken at this time in respect of the above.
(3) T H A T the report be referred to the Planning Committee.
Reasons for decisions
(1) For information.
(2) To clarify the Council's position.
(3) For information."
