Tinshill area – Proposed Traffic Regulation Order

Please find below information that may be of interest to you, in italics.  If you would like a copy of the plan please email me at barry.anderson@leeds.gov.uk and I will send you an electronic copy.

If you have any comments I would be pleased to receive them,  however there will be formal public consultation in due course as outlined below.

“Dear Councillor Anderson,

I am writing to make you aware and consult with you on scheme proposals that are currently being prepared for the Tinshill area Traffic Regulation Order.

These proposals have been prepared to address resident concerns of obstructive parking from those commuters using Horsforth train station.

Details of the proposed scheme are a provided on the attached plan TE-00-604-TRO. Below is a summary of the proposals for Tinshill Road, split between your ward and Weetwood ward:

  • Sections of single yellow lines on Tinshill Lane, in operation Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm. These will assist in preventing the parking currently seen on both sides of the carriageway, which restricts traffic flow and impacts on resident accessibility into their properties; and
  • Double yellows on Tinshill Road from just below Carr Bridge Drive to a point just above Hill Crest Rise, to prevent parking close to these junctions throughout the day.

At this early stage of scheme development I am seeking feedback from yourself and your colleagues, Weetwood Members, WYCA and the Emergency Services. Your information and views will be used to develop and refine the detailed proposals prior to opening up the proposals to wider consultation with residents and other stakeholders.

It would be most helpful at this point in the process if you could confirm your views and support for the proposed scheme in principle.  With your support once the details have been confirmed it would be my intention to move forward to the next stage of wider consultation.  Any further consultation letters will of course be copied to you.

The scheme has been presented to the Chief Officer (Highways and Transportation) at Highways Board and given approval in principle.

I would welcome your acknowledgement and comments with an indication of your views on the scheme proposals at your earliest convenience preferably by 13th May so that any comments can be duly considered before the scheme is taken forward to a wider public consultation and detailed design phase. I will notify you of any design changes that arise following that public consultation phase. As I am sure you appreciate, the delivery of this scheme will depend on the current situation surrounding Covid-19 and any further Government advice that may prevent ourselves and/or our Contractors from undertaking works.”
