Posted: September 29, 2022

The results of the twelve-week consultation are now available.

The findings of a 12-week consultation on plans to address parking, speed and traffic volume issues near Eastwood Drive/North Street have now been released.

Derby City Council has asked local residents and business owners in the area for their views on plans to improve traffic management, after several years of complaints.

While various measures including no-entry signs, speed limits and parking permits had already been introduced in an attempt to address the issues, concerns remained among local residents.

The Council proposed three options as potential solutions to better manage traffic in the region:

  • Option 1 – closure of North Street at its junction near Eastwood Drive and Snelston Crescent, blocking the route from Manor Road to Burton Road and vice versa
  • Option 2 – Manor Road port closure which will prevent traffic from turning right onto Eastwood Drive from Manor Road and vice versa. This will also prevent traffic from making U-turns at this location.
  • Option three – no change, to retain access as currently provided.

More than 500 people took part in the 12-week consultation, which ran from January 31 to April 25, 2022, set up to give local people a chance to have their voices heard.

Results showed that over 52% of participants accepted option three as their preferred option.

A spokesman for Derby City Council said:

It is important that residents have had the opportunity to speak up and it is great that the consultation has had a good response with many residents and local business owners who have taken the time to respond, and we would like to thank everyone who contributed.

We will work with the theme of the option, according to the majority opinion and continue with the existing circulation measures.

Residents are encouraged to contact their local neighborhood team or representative if they have any questions.

The full report is available on the Let’s Talk Derby website.
