Cromer Road - Request for 20mph Speed Limit pdf icon PDF 239 KB

    Additional documents:


    The Committee received the report.


    The question detailed below had been received from Philippa Whitecross regarding this item:





    Please could we have update on the existing VAS which seems not to be operational?




    The VAS sign on Cromer Road is operational. An officer had visited the site on 23 September 2019 and was able to download the speed data, which is currently being analysed. A reason that the sign may seem not to be working is that the sign is triggered at the speed limit which is currently 30 mph

    and as the report indicated the 85% speeds are currently lower than this. If the Committee agree to the proposal to reduce the speed to 20mph the trigger on the sign will be reduced accordingly.


    Although it is currently not proposed to move the sign as part of scheme, this could be considered by the Committee and the sign located further along the road.


    Philippa Whitecross was given the opportunity to ask a supplementary question.



    Comment included with question:


    It would also be helpful to know how we get CCTV in place to enforce the one-way and the school zig-zags and the current situation on the “Unsuitable for HGV’s” sign as per discussion with Cllr Longstaff.




    Following the previous request for CCTV covering the one-way system, in particular in Shafesbury Avenue, the location is currently under investigation for the provision of an enforcement camera.


    The position of the camera is also being looked at to see if it possible to cover the School Keep Clear markings and the one-way operation from one camera position. Officers will report back to Ward Councillors once the results of the investigation have been completed.


    The request for the provision of a ‘Unsuitable for HGV’s’ is being considered by the Committee as a Member’s item submitted by Councillor Prentice.


    Following this, the Committee considered the CIL request from Councillor Prentice, with the outcome noted under the CIL applications for this Committee (agenda item 9).


    In addition to the recommendations outlined officers requested the additional recommendation:


    “That the Chipping Barnet Area Committee resolve that if any objections are received as a result of the consultation referred to in recommendation 3, the Executive Director for Environment be authorised to consider and determine whether the preferred scheme should be implemented or not, and if so, with or without modification.”


    A vote was taken on the Officer recommendations:


    For: 3

    Against: 0

    Abstained: 0




    1.    That the Chipping Barnet Area Committee notes the review of the safety improvements on Cromer Road, Shaftesbury Avenue and Bulwer Road in the two options set out in this report and as shown on the drawings in Appendix A and on the Road Safety Audit in Appendix B.

    2.    That the Chipping Barnet Area Committee, noting the Council’s Policy on Traffic Calming, agrees Option 2 as the Ward Councillors preferred solution.

    3.    That the Chipping Barnet Area Committee instructs the Executive Director, Environment to instruct officers to carry  ...  view the full minutes text for item 7.
