Latest Update

17/07/2017 09:31:52 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.

CATG Action / Recommendation


Speeding on Filands in the vicinity of Hitchings Close and the new estate. speedwatch has recorded speeds of over 80 mph. Also overtaking by Hitchings Close and David Henry Cars is a safety risk. Can the speed limit and hatched lines be considered please
