    Minutes:

    Councillor Duschinsky - Feasibility Study on Millway, Mill Hill

     

    The Chairman explained that options for improving the safety and decreasing the speeds of vehicles on Millway, Mill Hill were required. Particularly the junction with the Broadway needed to be investigated.

     

    Officers explained that there were already loading restrictions on the left-hand side of the road, but a sign was currently missing. Once the sign had been reinstated, enforcement could recommence. Notices would have to be sent out 2 weeks in advance, to notify residents that enforcement action would recommence. Officers suggested the area be monitored for around 2 months, after the reinstallation of the sign, to see if this solved the issues. An update would be provided at the March 19th Hendon Area Committee meeting.

     

    Officers recommended a feasibility study to look at appropriate measures for the rest of the road at a cost of £5,000.

     

    The Committee unanimously voted to approve £5,000 CIL funding for a feasibility study to be carried out on the Millway.

     

    RESOLVED that £5,000 CIL funding be assigned for a feasibility study on the Millway, Mill Hill. 

     

    Councillor Nagus Narenthira – Feasibility study Colindale Avenue

     

    Councillor Narenthira explained that Colindale Avenue between A5 and Charcot Road is congested due to parking on either side of the road after the single line enforcement times, as well as obstructing buses being able to pass through. She said that problems of traffic congestion and pedestrian safety were also evident at the junction of Cecil Avenue and Colindale Avenue. Many residents had contacted ward Councillors about these issues. She asked that a feasibility study be conducted to identify measures to alleviate the problems.

     

    Offices informed the Committee that the Colindale CPZ would soon be implemented in the area and that this could alleviate some of the problems. Officers advised that feedback from the statutory consultation suggested double yellow lines would be appropriate. A meeting with all affected ward Councillors, to discuss options would be scheduled and a Delegated Powers Report would outline the recommendations. Recommendations to change some of the business bays on Cecil Road to dual bay use could also be investigated and consulted on. Officers said that no funding was required from the Hendon Area Committee CIL allocation, as it could be funded through the existing section 106 funding if agreed.

     

    Following discussion, the Committee unanimously agreed no funding would be allocated at this meeting to this item, as these issues would be taken into consideration and resolved as part of the Colindale CPZ work.

     

    RESOLVED that no further action was required at this time

     

    Councillor John Hart – Review of parking on the Ridgeway, NW7

    Officers informed the Committee that a site visit had taken place and that the issues surrounding obstructive parking had been identified. Officers felt that in  ...  view the full minutes text for item 9.
