A decision on four of the proposed nine traffic regulation orders in Coldstream has been adjourned for further discussion with the community.

Five of the orders were accepted at Berwickshire Area Forum last week and go forward: no waiting areas increased at the turning area at Duns Road; removal of three parking spaces on the High Street near Leet Bridge; a traffic order for the double yellow lines already in place outside Bank House; an area outside the Co-op on the High Sreet restricted for goods vehicles loading and unloading between 7.30am and 9.30am and double yellow lines between Lukes Brae and the Co-op; removing part of the one-way order at Nursery Road for traffic leaving the sub station to go back up Duns Road.

For further discussion: extending double yellow lines on the High Street between the Co-op and the community centre (a 154 signature petition and nine letters opposing it); a one way system at Park Side and Home Place is to be looked at again as the community council believes an alternative one way system would be more practical; extending double yellow lines on one side of Duns Road near the Home Place junction may just move rather than resolve the problem of cars parking too near the junction; whether an access only at Lukes Brae should also include an order preventing access from Luke Brae onto the High Street.
