Issue Summary

Broughton Gifford Village Entrances

 

Latest Update

CATG Action / Recommendation

Issue

At all the entrances to Broughton Gifford village from Melksham Lane direction from the Holt Direction in East Laneand from the Atworth direction in Coombe Lane See extract from CATG Report below You will see from the Notes of the Councils Highways Working Party 29th November 2017 Min. 18317 that the Parish Council would like to enhance the individuality and character of the village by conveying the Ganderland theme at village entrances. The aim is to give a clear signal to drivers to take care that they are entering the village and community area. As Broughton Gifford is a traditional Bath Stone village we would like to install at each village entrance dry-stone walled planters wall with a goose carved in stone. These would be adjacent to and enhance the village nameplate and speed limit. The planterswalls would provide a habitat for insects and could include flowers which would be maintained by volunteers. The Parish Council would appreciate advice re what would be permissible e.g. size materials regulations etc. Please would you inform whether we would need a licence andor planning permission to make these gateway features. Would Wiltshire Highways and CATG be willing to support this concept for our village
