Issue details

Various Roads, Westhead, Ormskirk, West Lancashire Borough (Prohibition of Waiting, Restricted Waiting and Limited Waiting)

This report sets out proposals to introduce additional waiting restrictions on Ruff Lane, Whiteleys Lane and Vicarage Lane and new waiting restrictions on the neighbouring residential streets of Vicarage Close, St James Close, Varlian Close and Wellfield Lane, in Westhead, Ormskirk. Excessive daytime parking associated with Edge Hill University occurs when parking facilities within the campus are oversubscribed. The proposed restrictions have been drawn up to maintain sightlines at junctions and to keep the residential roads sufficiently clear of traffic to allow the properties to be serviced through the period when the university is operational.


The proposals have been advertised in the local press and a number of objections have been received.
