Reason for Decision
To enable the footway widening in Institute Road providing a safer environment for pedestrians. It is considered that the benefits of the scheme outweigh the potential impacts on local businesses, from reduced loading provision and on-street parking.
Alternative Options Considered and Rejected
During the development of the scheme several alternative options were considered.
The total cost of the scheme is estimated to be £450,000.00. The scheme is being part funded by Swanage Town Council (£100,000.00), Developer funding pooled from local Section 106 payments (£75,000.00),
with the remainder of the funding (£275,000.00) from the Local Transport Plan.
Under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 Dorset Council can introduce TROs to make changes to parking and loading Orders necessary for the scheme to function, in terms of traffic management.
