Is The City Council Crossing The “Red Line”

“Red Line Route” which is a possibility on High Street, Sandyford

A public consultation is planned to discuss the proposed expantion of Stoke on Trent City Council’s “Red Route Scheme” to cover other parts of the city.

The red route proposals could see routes introduced on:

  • Waterloo Road (A50) from Vale Place (Hanley) to Swan Square (Burslem)
  • Scotia Road (A50) from Market Place (Burslem) to Haymarket (Tunstall), Williamson Street (Tunstall) & High Street (Sandyford)
  • Longton town centre, including The Strand, Commerce Street, Market Street, Transport Lane & King Street from Victoria Place (Fenton) to Longton
  • City Road, from Leek Road (Stoke) to Victoria Place (Fenton) & Victoria Road (A50) from Victoria Place (Fenton) to Dewsbury Road (Fenton)
  • Stoke Town centre, including Church Street, Londsdale Street, Fleming Road, Campbell Place, Hartshill Road & Shelton Old Road
  • University Quarter, including Leek Road, from Joiners Square to City Road (Stoke), College Road from Avenue Road to Station Road (Stoke) & Station Road

The City Council say their reasoning behind the proposals is to tackle congestion and inconsiderate parking as well as to improve road safety and keep the city moving.

Stoke on Trent City Council say that red routes – given the name because of the painted red lines – prevent drivers from stopping at any time but can still allow for loading and unloading in designated bays, as well as disabled parking. Hackney carriage vehicles can drop off and pick up passengers, and the driver of a vehicle with a blue badge can also pick up or drop off a disabled person. The restrictions are enforced by CCTV along the routes.

If the proposals are approved then special cameras will be set up to catch those motorists flouting the new regulations, who will then face £70 penalty fines.

Concerns to the idea are that some businesses rely on passing trade, and would be in a position of losing business. Other comments are that there are no real problems with parking, it is just another way of the council trying to make money out of the situation.

People are able to view the plans in more detail and have their say between 1pm and 7pm on the following dates:

  • Thursday, October 4: Floral Hall, Queens Avenue, Tunstall
  • Tuesday, October 9: Copeland Room, Stoke Town Hall
  • Thursday, October 11: Fenton Spiritualist Church, King Street
  • Tuesday, October 16: Swan Bank Methodist Church, Burslem

The consultation will run until Friday, October 19. To take part, visit www.stoke.gov.uk/redroutes

Sandyford Business Development Attracts International Companies

Tunstall Arrow’s Sandyford Development

Simon Peters, Development Director (Network Space) was invited to guest speak at the Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Association (S.A.G.E.) Public Meeting held at Goldenhill Community Centre earlier this week.

Mr Peters talked about the completion of five high quality industrial units (pictured right), and the siting of the units being convenient to the A500  (D Road) and motorway network.

The Development Director reported that 4 out of the 5 units are now let, and it is an exceptional result, adding that the strength of industrial business in Stoke is good.

At the meeting it was said that Network Space is pleased with the Construction Company (Caddick), and also adding that the development could not have happened without council support (Ceramic Valley Project), which enabled them to get funding to make it happen.

Residents were informed that the tenants who would be occupying the units are international companies coming to Sandyford which are.

Q-Railing, Anchor Tenant (Balustrade Balconies & Staircases), German Company

Pramac Generac, (Mobile Lighting Towers and Power Generators), Italian Company

Boels Rental, (Portable Machine & Tool Rental), Netherlands Company

SG Fleet/Motiva, (Vehicle Hire & Rental Group), Australian Company

Mr Peters also mentioned that another German Company is looking to move to Sandyford by leasing the last remaining unit.

Residents were also informed that there will be a phase 2 & 3 to come to the area with 15 year leases in place, adding it is great to see a former industrial site coming back into use.

Network Space Development Director is to give an update on Sandyford’s new Business Development on James Brindley Way, (pictured right) at the next Sandyford & Goldenhill Residents Public Meeting on Thursday 13th September, 7.30 p.m. at Goldenhill Community Hall/Centre.

The five units which will form part of the Ceramic Valley Enterprise are now built, with Q-Railing taking residence in the largest unit.

Network Space discussed the new development proposals when guest speaking at the S.A.G.E. public meeting back in January 2017, which was welcomed by residents. The developer has said they are more than willing to come along again to meet local people and give them a promising update on how the project is moving forward.
