Mill Mead Staines-Upon-Thames - Prohibition of Vehicles Proposal

Closed 15 Oct 2021

Opened 17 Sep 2021

Overview

Thank you for your interest in our Prohibition of Vehicles proposals in Mill Mead Staines-Upon-Thames. 

The legislation we must follow before introducing this scheme means that we need to allow objections and comments from the public to be considered before a final decision is reached about whether or not to go ahead with our preferred scheme in its current form.

The proposal:

As part of the redevelopment of the Charter Square site (formerly known as Majestic House) in Staines, the section of Mill Mead along the western boundary of the site is to be permanently closed to all vehicular traffic save for emergency and servicing vehicles.

The existing access junction from Mill Mead to High Street has very poor visibility, therefore the road closure is required for highway safety reasons. A new link road is currently under construction along the northern boundary of the site, between Fairfield Avenue and Mill Mead. This will facilitate vehicular access to and from the offices and warehouses at the Renshaw Industrial Estate, which are located at the northern-most end of Mill Mead. One of the obligations imposed on the planning permission for the Charter Square site is that the developer closes off Mill Mead to vehicular traffic once the new link road is open to the public and adopted by the County Council.

There will be a fixed bollard at the southern end of Mill Mead to prevent vehicle access from the High Street. Vehicular access at the north end of the closed section is to be governed by a demountable bollard. Appropriate traffic signs will also be erected at each end, along with the bollards. A TRO is needed to prevent vehicles from entering the road, with exemptions for the emergency services.
