Issue Summary

CATG The Tynings Matravers School


Latest Update

18/05/2017 09:31:56 Thank you for raising your issue with the Area Board. The Council has set up a way for local people to decide local highway improvement priorities. A local community area transport group (CATG) of local people and elected councillors comes together to consider issues and proposals and to recommend those schemes that can be taken forward in any year. Before the CATG can consider a proposal, it must first consult the local parish or town council. Only if the parish supports the issue will it be considered further. If your issue is supported by the parish council, it will be submitted to the CATG for consideration. The CATG will then decide whether it should go forward onto the list of priority schemes. Resources are very limited, so it is important that schemes are prioritised in this way. Obviously, not all schemes can be taken forward and some proposals may have to wait a while before they become a priority for funding. The CATG makes recommendations to the Area Board who will decide which schemes will be funded and taken forward. We will keep you informed of progress as we go through the steps outlined.

CATG Action / Recommendation


Residents from surrounding roads and Matravers School staff and pupils are using The Tynings which is a narrow residential road as a parking area. Also an HGV vehicle 40t Batemans regularly parks in The Tynings over night along with a Trowbridge College bus. There have been several accidents on the blind corner going down hill into The Tynings. Bin lorries have been unable to access The Tynings to empty bins and access by emergency services would also be blocked if the need where to arise.
