09/05/2019 - Abandon the proposed residents parking scheme for various streets in Loughborough ref: 10432    Recommendations Approved

The area around the A60 is a mixture of terraced housing, flats, some semi-detached houses and a few businesses. The semi-detached houses are predominately in the new developments; generally in the new developments some parking provision has been allocated. This is one of the few remaining areas in Loughborough that has terraced housing but isn’t part of a residents-only parking scheme.
Following some of the residents getting in touch about not being able to park on street and the general enquiries received over time about residents parking it was decided to carry out an initial consultation to ascertain the support such a scheme might have with a view to advertising a complete scheme. As part of the proposals a one-way system was proposed in each zone to try to create some on-street parking spaces as traffic would not need to give and take and no waiting restrictions at the junctions could be reduced.


It was decided that the result of the consultation was not conclusive enough to proceed with the scheme. As residents were being asked to pay for a permit a majority would need to be in favour. There are also several businesses within the zones and residents-only parking could make it difficult for those businesses to operate.
The same applies to the one-way system with the results of the consultation not being conclusive. One-way streets can potentially inconvenience residents and although it would create more on-street parking it was thought that the consultation would need to be more conclusive. Also some of the parking spaces that were going to be created by removing single yellow lines will be taken up as part of the single yellow line review.

09/05/2019 - Soar Valley Way Bridge - Repairs to bridge parapet ref: 10429    Recommendations Approved

Soar Valley Way is a main outer distributor dual carriageway road near to Fosse Park, Leicester. Lengths of Bridge Parapet adjacent to both Lane 2 and the central reserve on Soar Valley Way bridge were damaged in a road traffic accident in late 2018. In the interim the road has been operating to a reduced speed limit with TVCB’s in place in lieu of the damaged bridge parapet.
The County Council has now made sufficient funds available to upgrade the whole length of parapet adjacent to the centre reserve (approximately 60 metres in each direction). Road space booking is available from Monday July 15 to Friday July 26 2019, traditionally when traffic in Leicester is quieter and hence the work will cause less disruption.

Tenders have been sought on a reduced tender period in order to meet the road space available. The tender has been advertised through the County Council tender portal “East Mids Tenders”.
