I have received a copy of an email sent by North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) that confirms that the NYCC Highways Authority have no understanding of basic legislation regards road signage.
The extract above is taken from the email that is in relation to signage banning overnight camping and states “there is no “rule” governing the erection of the signs”.
This is false. I refer NYCC to the TSRGD. The statement further confirms that the false information contained in the Leeming Bar Parking Ban – Report To Cabinet (click on the link to read) is now further negated. Advice from NYCC is clearly not worth the paper it is written on.
“5.18 It was confirmed by North Yorkshire County Council Highways Authority on 3 April 2019 that the signs installed as notification of the Public Space Protection Order are considered to be public notices; as such they are permitted within the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions 2016 without the need for special authorisation from the Secretary of State.”
In future, I advise Hambleton District Council (HDC) not to rely upon the North Yorkshire County Council Highways Authority when attempting to ban overnight parking.
Is that now Strangeway 27 v 0 HDC? I have lost count.
