Motion by Councillor Lang - Petition on Station Road, Ratho Station

Motion by Councillor Lang - Petition on Station Road, Ratho Station 

“Committee:

1.    notes that a petition was submitted to the Council on 23 December 2022, signed by 70 residents, calling for “a new restriction on Station Road to stop heavy goods vehicles coming through Ratho Station and passing by Hillwood Primary school”.

2.    notes this petition was not presented to the January 2022 meeting of the Transport & Environment Committee.

3.    notes a decision was taken to not bring a report on the petition to the March 2022 meeting of the Committee and instead for the matter to be deferred to the first meeting of the committee after the May elections which, under the current agreed diary, would be August 2022.

4.    regrets that this decision would mean the committee’s first discussion on the petition and issues raised could be eight months after the petition was validly submitted, despite it relating to one of child safety.

5.    agrees that officers should, at the earliest possible stage, engage directly with the ward councillors elected following the May elections and with the Newbridge and Ratho Station Residents’ Association on the issues raised in the petition and to initiate work on a draft vehicle weight restriction traffic regulation order for public consultation.

6.    agrees that an update should be provided to the next meeting of the committee, whether through a full report or business bulletin update.”
