Overview

The County Council has been requested, by Councillor James Airey, to design and consult upon a safety scheme encompassing Daltongate, Ulverston for consultation and advertising from Thursday 19th March 2020. I am writing to inform you of the proposals and to allow you to comment or object before a decision on the final scheme and whether to implement the restrictions is made.

Why We Are Consulting

Reason for restriction

Parking arrangements along Daltongate have been in place for a lot of years and have been considered for a review. Concerns have been raised regarding parked vehicles causing obstruction on sections of the above road. This can make it difficult for residents, as well as refuse vehicles and emergency services, to pass through. “No Waiting at Any Time” (double yellow lines) restrictions are proposed to assist accessibility and traffic flow safety.

 

When will the proposal be finalised and implemented on the ground?

Following advertising and consultation on the proposal, a report will be prepared to go before the County Council Local Committee for South Lakeland.  It is hoped that it will be reported to the Local Committee meeting in May 2020. The Committee will make the final decision as to what will be implemented. We will endeavour to inform you of the Committee decision in due course. If the Committee agree to implement the proposal, the making of the traffic order and the placing of signs and markings should take place within a 3 to 4 month period after the decision.
