THE BOROUGH OF HAVANT (HAVANT: PENNER ROAD AND
SOUTHMOOR LANE (PROHIBITION OF WAITING) ORDER 2009

Report by the Technical Services Manager

Infrastructure Portfolio: Councillor Wride

Key Decision: No


1.0    PURPOSE OF REPORT

1.1    To consider the introduction of the above proposed Order and the objections
       received following the advertising of the proposals for public comment.

2.0    RECOMMENDATION

       That;

2.1    The waiting prohibited proposals for Penner Road, and the service entrances to
       Endeavour Business Park, be implemented as advertised (no objections received).

2.2    Two sections of limited waiting are introduced along Southmoor Lane:-

       a)      On the east side, in the layby (15m), between the entrances to Havant
               Borough Council’s Depot and the Scottish and Southern Energy car park.

       b)      On the west side (a length of 58m), between the entrance to the new Scottish
               and Southern Energy car park and the southern end of Southmoor Lane.

2.3    The waiting prohibited proposals for Southmoor Lane are implemented as advertised
       except for the two sections of limited waiting as described in 2.2 a) and 2.2 b) above.


3.0    SUMMARY

3.1    The planning permission relating to the redevelopment of the Autoliv site in Penner
       Road, Havant by Scottish and Southern Energy Limited included a requirement to
       limit peak hour car parking on the development site to 679 vehicles.

3.2    To ensure that no more than 679 vehicles, associated with the development, park
       long term on site or in the vicinity, it was deemed necessary to regulate on-street
       vehicle parking in Southmoor Lane and Penner Road (including in the service
       entrances to Endeavour Business Park).

THE EXECUTIVE

                                                                                7 May 2009
3.3    Regulating the parking on these roads will assist access, improve road safety and
       provide an improved environment for the local businesses to operate in. This will
       also help to prevent the usage of the area by travellers and maintain a safe route for
       pedestrians along Southmoor Lane.

3.4    Following the advertising of the proposed Order, two letters of objection have been
       received. These objections have been considered in consultation with the Portfolio
       Holder, local Ward Members and the Police who are all in agreement to proceed
       with the Order as advertised but with the amendments as shown in Paragraphs 2.2
       (a) and (b).

3.5    Drawing No. Hi12/281A shows the lengths of roads, which are the subject of the
       proposed order including the recommended two sections of two hour limited waiting
       provision along Southmoor Lane.

3.6    The two hour limited waiting parking bays along Southmoor Lane will operate from
       Monday to Saturday, 8am to 6pm with no return within two hours.


4.0    FURTHER INFORMATION

4.1    Copies of the objections received have been placed in the library and a summary of
       the objections is provided in the Appendix A.


5.0    IMPLICATIONS

       Financial

5.1    The cost of introducing the Order, including advertising, signing and carriageway
       lining, will be met from developer contributions.

       Legal

5.2    The Order will be made under sections 1(1), 2(1), (2) and 4(2) of the Road Traffic
       Regulation Act 1984.

      preventing the likelihood of any such danger and to facilitate the passage of traffic.
