This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

I am seeking information concerning the content of the Statement of Reasons applied to Traffic Order TO/18/07 (NORTH PARADE AND MEOLS PARADE, HOYLAKE AND MEOLS, PROHIBITION AND RESTRICTION OF WAITING AND PLACES PARKING). In the Council's Statement of Reasons the order is described as being introduced in "to maintain access along the promenade and improve visibility and manoeuvring space at junctions and slipway areas". However, there are no other details on display offering evidence or data to support the quoted Statement of Reasons.

Therefore, I would be most grateful if you could supply any information collected by the Council in recent years covering:

1. Any recorded vehicle, cycle or pedestrian incidents at junctions on the highway specified in the Traffic Order attributed to lack of visibility.
2. Any recorded vehicle, cycle or pedestrian incidents at slipway areas on the highway specified in the Traffic Order attributed to lack of manoeuvring space.
3. Ay recommendations made by Road Safety Officers or any of the emergency services to introduce waiting orders, parking restrictions or off-street parking provisions other than the restrictions currently in force on the specified highway.
4. Any traffic survey data conducted on the highway specified in the Order giving cause to explore the potential need to introduce the parking restrictions specified in the order.

Many thanks for your efforts and assistance in this matter.

Yours faithfully,

NJT Lauro
