27A Wallace Crescent Development

Sutton Council

Sutton Council

Local residents have reported concerns to Alan, Hamish and Jill over the temporary coning off the road sides by the developers of some parts of Wallace Crescent at the southern end. The Council’s highways officer has reported back as follows:-

“This is a private development and the developer needs access to their site for deliveries. The access to the site from both Pound Street (A232) and Beynon Road (B271) can often be difficult for really large vehicles and this is usually as a result of parking by residents on the junctions/bends later in the day. Some developers request the Council for temporary parking restrictions to aid access to their site and this has the advantage that they can be enforced by the Council’s parking section. The Oakwood Group have not done this on this occasion. 

The Highway Code  Cl. 242/3 states that drivers must not park their vehicles where they would cause an obstruction or park within 10 metres of a junction. Unfortunately, some drivers are not abiding by the Code.  From your pictures and from our site visits we have noted that the developer is putting out some small barriers at one of the junctions to help access to the site and that they are not out all the time. We have no issues with this. However, we will be monitoring the situation. 

Please bear in mind that if the developer had chosen to apply for temporary parking restrictions the amount of parking that would have been removed would have been much more, as we would have applied the Highway Code rules fully.
