...and speeding surveys.

The highway people at County Hall have started to interpret the information from the recent vehicle counts and speed surveys.

They advise that, in their opinion, the speed surveys demonstrated no speeding concerns (with average speeds on Hill Street and Church Street being well below 30mph) and that the speeds recorded do not quite meet the requirements for a 20mph zone.

However, they are suggesting removing areas of double yellow lines and the intention then would be to undertake further speed surveys following the removal and subsequently implement a 20mph zone, as they believe that the additional on street parking will further encourage lower vehicle speeds through the village.

As I have said repeatedly ‘The best form of traffic calming is parked vehicles’.

Things are at a very early stage and I will ensure that everyone is kept advised of what is going on.
