    Statement Not upheld Traffic management 17-Feb-2020

We have not exercised our discretion to look at how the matter affected (or will affect) other members of the public, because there is no significant evidence that anyone else has, or may have, experienced any injustice either.

    Statement Not upheld Traffic management 20-Jan-2020

    Summary: There was no fault in the way the Council considered requests from Mr B and Ms C for parking restrictions (double yellow lines) to two exit junctions of the street where they live.

The Council has already provided an appropriate remedy to Mr B and Ms C for the lack of clarity and delay in some of its responses.
