What has been done so far

There is not much the Parish Council can do at this stage but one resident of Sells Green may investigate the setting up of a Speed Watch Group should the requested metro count prove that drivers are regularly speeding

What would resolve issue

A metro count in the first instance to assess whether cars are regularly speeding. A reduction in the speed limit to 30mph.

Who needs to come together

Wiltshire Highways, Seend Parish Council and residents of Sells Green.
