Variation of the Somerset County Council on-street parking order 2012 (as amended), Taunton area of Somerset West & Taunton (Taunton Deane) by the introduction of restrictions to prohibit and restrict the waiting within the Huish area, Taunton by the introduction of pay and display / permit parking and waiting restrictions.

Reasons
Following feedback and extensive consultation with residents it is proposed to introduce various restrictions within the Huish College area of Taunton. No waiting at any time will deter vehicles from parking in inappropriate spaces, e.g. too close to junctions/access to premises and on the footway. The introduction of pay and display parking with a maximum stay of 2 hours will deter all day parking, increase the turnover and availability of parking and improve the management of the restrictions. The introduction of a free 10 and 20-minute period for parking will enable drivers to park for short periods without charge, assisting with the drop off and collection of children at the nearby school and short visits to local businesses. The introduction of Permits in residential roads will deter non­residents from parking and prioritise parking for residents and their visitors. Businesses operating from homes such as music teachers, or other businesses in the area has been recognised by the introduction of home business permits which will enable their clients to continue to park without making use of the resident visitors permits. The South Road amendment to remove a length of permit parking area between 33 South Road and the junction with Holway Avenue is being made following feedback from residents. Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984
The specific grounds which the County Council are using for the implementation of the proposed no waiting at any time restriction as above, are the following sections of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984:
Section 1 (a) for avoiding danger to persons or other traffic using the road or any other such road or for preventing the likelihood of any such danger arising.
Section 1 (c) for facilitating the passage on the road or any other road of any class of traffic (including pedestrians). Section 1 (f) for preserving or improving the amenities of the area through which the road runs.
In addition, thorough consideration was given to the factors set out in Section 122 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 in proposing this Traffic Order.
Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2016
All the associated signing will be in accordance with traffic signs regulations and general directions 2016.
Equality Act 2010
Consideration was given to the equality's duty of the County Council under Section 149 of the Equality Act 2010.
