Issue Summary

CATG The Mead Lakes

 

Latest Update

31/08/2017 07:10:21 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

Issue

Disability access to The Mead LakesSince becoming wheel chair bound I have become more appreciative of all the rampscrossing points in and around Westbury.In the past Ive been able to walk my dog from Frogmore Road via the Public footpath to the Mead Lakes. I now find that this is impossible due to lack of ramps on the Mead road between the footpath and the lakesbetween Gloucester Walk and Somerset Drive Crossing the road there at present is fraught with danger as everybody seems to ignore the 30mph limit.Newly built housing in this area has also resulted in an increase in the amount of traffic using The Mead.
