Decision details

Response to Petition: Draft TfL Road Plans to Grosvenor Place and Wilton Street

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for City Highways

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Decision:

1.               That the Cabinet Member for City Highways acknowledged:

 

·                 That the City Council continues to support the key concerns raised in the petition and that a formal position of Objection was issued to TfL before the then deadline of 1 October 2017;

 

·                 That an Officer has regularly liaised with the Petition Lead since October to ensure that he is fully briefed of the City Council’s position; and

 

·                 That Officers will continue to liaise with fellow Ward Members, other concerned residents, stakeholders and TfL to determine a more suitable scheme that addresses the underlying high casualty related accident history that remains evident on Grosvenor Place.

 

 

 

2.       Following full scrutiny of the proposed scheme it was considered that whilst it:

 

·                 Would certainly reduce the high levels of casualty related accidents on Grosvenor Place (a Strategic Road) at its Castle Street and Chapel Street access points, it appeared to underestimate the detrimental impact it would have on the residents of Wilton Street in respect to increased traffic and congestion; and

 

·                 Its timing for implementation was questionable in respect of the wider, more substantive and unfinished strategic plans for the nearby Victoria Gyratory (that is mainly TLRN). Plans that will greatly impact on future traffic distribution across the wider Victoria area, that includes Grosvenor Place.
