Matters referred from the Chipping Barnet Residents Forum including any Petitions pdf icon PDF 276 KB

    Minutes:

    The Committee considered the following items and petitions referred from the Chipping Barnet Residents Forum:

     

    Item

    Action

    Title: Children's safety in a residential area.

    Resident: Mr Rob Glass

    Ward: Oakleigh

     

    Issue: Issue to be raised relates to the safety of children's safety in a residential area. The speed with which cars travel down steep roads and slopes could and will be fatal at some point and, as with many other areas, their speed should be controlled by speed humps or another form. Paint markings clearly make no difference at all and investment to prevent multiple crashes and fatalities needs implementing immediately.

     

    Please consider speed humps or another form or speed control (not just painted SLOW DOWN signs) on Lyonsdown Rd in EN5.

     

    Rob Glass addressed the Committee on this matter, explaining his concerns and suggesting the installation of speed humps.

     

    The Chairman stated that a speed survey would be required, before any action could be taken on this matter.

     

    It was stated that there may already have been a speed survey at this location a few years ago. It was felt that this should be clarified, before a further speed survey was carried out.

     

    It was also suggested that Officers meet with residents on site to discuss their concerns and the most appropriate location for the speed survey.

     

    RESOLVED that

     

    1.Subject to a speed survey not having been previously carried out, £2,000 be allocated from CIL funding for this purpose;

     

    2.Officers be requested to meet with residents on site to discuss their concerns;

     

    3.a report back be submitted to a future meeting of this Committee.

     

    ACTION: STRATEGIC DIRECTOR ENVIRONMENT

     

     

    Lead Petitioner: Mr Elias Chrysostomou

    Number of signatures: 31

    Ward: Underhill

     

    Petition:As residents of Wellside Close, ENS, listed below are the issues weface with the Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) that was introduced on 10th September 2018:

     

     • Drivers are missing the CPZ signs and are still parking in Wellside Close during the CPZ hours

     • Illegally parked vehicles are taking up parking space hence making it difficult for residents (who have paid for yearly permits) and their visitors to find parking

     • Most people that park in Wellside Close do so because they are visiting the hospital, hence we will have these issues all year round meaning the CPZ has not had the intended effect of freeing up parking for residents and their visitors.

     

    • Paint drive bays and display the associated signage in Wellside Close as opposed to just at the beginning of the road (the drive bays must not obstruct resident's driveways)

    Give every resident in Wellside Close 10 free visitor permits for the inconvenience caused (the cost for these can be taken from the Penalty Charge Notices issued thus far)

    Elias Chrysostomou, Lead Petitioner was given the opportunity to address the Committee, requesting the action outlined opposite in the referral.

     

    The Chairman raised the point that residents were provided with the opportunity to raise concerns about the proposed operating procedures of the CPZ at  ...  view the full minutes text for item 7.

    Minutes:

    Councillor Sowerby - Netherlands Road Width Restriction Barrier

     

    Councillor Sowerby introduced his request and explained that it was currently costing a substantial amount of money to repair and maintain the physical barrier at this site (£5000 in the past 6 months alone) Consequently, he suggested that an enforcement camera be installed at a cost of £15,000 from CIL funding, which would prove to be cost efficient in the long term.

     

     

     RESOLVED that CIL funding of £15,000 be agreed.

     

    ACTION: STRATEGIC DIRECTOR ENVIRONMENT

     

    Councillor Teare - Traffic calming on Hadley, Clifford and Woodville

     

    Councillor Weeden-Sanz stated that he lived near this location.

     

    Councillor Teare introduced his item and requested that any survey work be performed outside of school holidays and when roadworks had finished.

     

    The Committee also heard representations from local residents Paul Clark and Dan Hamilton, who outlined residents’ concerns and preferred solutions as well as photographic evidence.

     

    Highways Officers explained that the preferred option of a speed table was outside the financial remit of the committee which could only fund schemes up to £25,000. It was noted that Potters Road speed table, which had been LIP funded, had cost £75,000. The option of speed humps was discussed but Officers stated that these would very likely cost over £25,000 as they would need to be introduced in all three roads.  

     

    Officers suggested that the speed table option be added to the list of Highways schemes requiring LIP funding in the next financial year.

     

    RESOLVED that Officers be requested to add this request to the LIP funding list and confirm that it has been added with Councillor Teare.

    Heather O’Connor also addressed the Committee with her concerns.

    ACTION: STRATEGIC DIRECTOR ENVIRONMENT

     

    Councillor Coakley Webb - Parkside Gardens Double Yellow Lines

    Councillor Byers -

     

    Councillor Byers was not present for the item.

     

    Some Members felt that the yellow lines already in place were sufficient as they were 15m in length.

    FOR: 2 AGAINST: 4 ABSTAINED: 1
