Issue Summary

Speeding at Stag Hill Chilton Foliat

 

Latest Update

09/11/2017 16:11:05 To accurately measure vehicle speeds and check that speeding is a problem, there needs to be a Metrocount done at the location near the school. Before this can take place, the local parish council will need to confirm that they agree with this. I will contact the parish council. Once they give this confirmation, I will be in touch again about the location for the Metrocount. If this check shows that speeding is a problem Wiltshire Police can get involved. They can help set up a Community Speedwatch group where volunteers track vehicle speeds and report offenders to the police. Another option is to look at a temporary 20mph limit outside the school during morning and afternoon times. More details can come from Wiltshire Councils School Travel Plan Adviser. I will make contact with them over this.


CATG Action / Recommendation

Issue

Our school is the last building before the road out of the village becomes very rural. People drive past at the most ridiculous speeds considering there is a school here. Its dangerous.

 

Issue Location

Marlborough

Street / Location

B4001

Electoral Division

Aldbourne and Ramsbury

Issue Duration

Probably many years but I have been here for 2 years and its been all that time.

Who is Affected

Children and their carers. I expect that the people that live on the road also find it an issue as some of the traffic is bound to be related to the school.

What has been done so far

I have sent emails to parents and put it into newsletters.

What would resolve issue

Anything really It is just so dangerous Maybe some of the traffic calming islands would work
