Consultation Summary



Cornwall Council are proposing a 20mph zone along the North Quay and King George V Memorial Walk, a 7.5t weight restriction along King George V Memorial Walk, motorised vehicle restriction on Sundays except for access, a bus clearway on B3301 and waiting restrictions on B3301 either side of proposed North Quay bridge and bus stop.


Background:

This scheme is to provide the infrastructure to facilitate the regeneration of Hayle waterfront, providing improved access to the waterfront and a connection to the A30 at the southern end of Hayle. The 20mph zone will be a consolidation of the existing 20mph speed limit along King George V Memorial Walk and the new road alongside the waterfront.

Scheme Objectives



The 20mph zone will be a consolidation of the existing 20mph speed limit along King Geroge V Memorial Walk and the proposed road alongside the waterfront. The 7.5t weight limit is to run along the length of King George V Memorial Walk, as it is unsuitable for use by heavy vehicles. The restriction stopping the use of King George V Memorial Walk by motorised vehicles (except for access) on Sundays is to reduce congestion preserving access to properties by residents.

Dear Sir/Madam


THE COUNTY OF CORNWALL (PENWITH) (RURAL SPEED LIMIT) (AMENDMENT) ORDER 2012


THE COUNTY OF CORNWALL (HAYLE) (KING GEORGE V MEMORIAL WALK) (PROHIBITION OF MOTOR VEHICLES) (SUNDAYS) ORDER 2012


THE COUNTY OF CORNWALL (HAYLE) (VARIOUS STREETS) (ON-STREET PARKING PLACES AND RESTRICTIONS ON WAITING) (AMENDMENT) ORDER 2012


THE COUNTY OF CORNWALL (HAYLE) (KING GEORGE V MEMORIAL WALK) (7.5TONNE WEIGHT RESTRICTION) ORDER 2012


Following the public consultation period, Cornwall Council has reviewed all of the correspondence received and has decided to implement schemes as advertised for the following locations: North Quay, King George V Memorial Walk, Clifton Terrace and Hayle Terrace.


The majority of responses were in favour of prohibiting motor vehicles (except for access) on King George V Memorial Walk (‘the Walk’) on Sundays. They cited the increased pedestrian usage on this day compared to the rest of the week. The Order restricting access to the Walk will reduce the conflict between pedestrians and motor vehicles. The consensus was that it would improve the atmosphere of the Walk on Sundays, encouraging more users both local and tourists into the area. Vehicular access to properties on the Walk is not restricted at any time.


There were some objections regarding closure to motor vehicles on Sundays, but these were a minority. It was recognised that there is an alternative route for motor vehicles, which is more suitable and that the Walk was not suitable as a rush-hour short cut.


The feedback regarding the weight restriction was that the Walk was not suitable for use by large vehicles. Their removal would make it safer for all road users due to the narrow nature of the road and difficulties in passing by larger vehicles.


Let me take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to write in during the consultation period.
