Get Area Board Issue
Consideration of 20 mph limit for Whitbourne Springs
Corsley Parish Council Report link with one way issue separately reported. Vehicles entering the Whitbourne Springs one way system from the Warminster direction at excessive speed round a blind bend into a narrow lane bordered by houses on both sides. This is the main alternative entrance for Longleat it has never been adequate for the large traffic flows produced by Longleat traffic management. The need is to slow vehicles as rapidly as possible before they are in the hamlet and then through it.
Street / Location
Increased during last 24 months with additional visitor numbers.
Who is Affected
The residents of Whitbourne Springs. The safety of traffic entering the hamlet.
What has been done so far
Meeting with Longleat to look at reducing use of the alternative access. It is a well established part of their traffic management organisation and is unlikely to reduce significantly particularly in view of the 20 increase in visitors over the last 2 years. Consulted with a Wiltshire Traffic Officer Mr Rose.
What would resolve issue
A well signed 20mph limit through Whitbourne Springs.
