We Need Your Help!

In recent years the local community have expressed serious concerns over the safety of all residents, due to the increased volume and speed of traffic through our villages. In addition, other concerns raised include antisocial street-parking, signage, lighting, traffic-calming measures etc.

As a group representing the views of the community, we would value the opinion of local people relating to:

1) possible traffic-calming measures, including the option of 20mph through the villages

2) issues surrounding parking which may be affecting you personally

3) any other traffic/parking-related issues you may be facing

The information gathered will be compiled and presented to the local council for review.

Please could you submit your views to:

By 30th September

As much information, including specific locations/ timings etc. would be useful.

Thank you,

Cath Purchase, Pat Hinton

on behalf of the Traffic and Parking Sub-Group, OPC
