I am very aware of the continued delays to the implementation of the scheme.

This is an issue with all proposed Housing Estate schemes at present, and as I have such a scheme on my patch I have become involved in trying to identify the blockages within the process and to remedy the situation. I have many enquiries regarding this and so I do wish to get it resolved as soon as I can.

To this end I have met with all involved teams and identified where the problems are that have caused the delay in the creation of the Traffic Management Order and the statutory consultation. The scheme has had approval from Community Council.

I am just about to finalise the process and delegate various responsibilities. I plan to pass the proposed schemes that are on hold to the Public Realm Projects Team next week. They will create the Traffic Order and put out for consultation. After that happens colleagues in Estate Parking Enforcement will arrange for lineage and street furniture to be fitted and the scheme will go live.

My estimate therefore for completion of the process will be approximately 10 weeks from when I pass the work, and the majority of this is to do with the consultation period. If we get any objections we will need to go back to Community Council and start the process again – but I hope we don’t have that issue. I have ensured that the Tabard scheme is prioritised.

I am very sorry for the delays which have now been resolved and the process going forward is clarified and established.

Kind Regards
