Traffic calming concerns

Since installation of the new calming scheme, a number of concerns have been raised by councillors and residents about how the scheme works on the ground, including about the northern arrangement. It is standard that new schemes of this kind have a routine post-implementation safety audit led by specialists independent of both the developer and WSCC. That review is due to happen in the next couple of weeks and the PC will be feeding directly into that process, ensuring that key points of concern raised by residents are fully heard. We will report back to residents on the outcome of this process as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, we are continuing to progress with developer and WSCC the reduced speed limit over Jackets Hill, which is due to be implemented in the first half of 2019.
