Latest Update

23/04/2018 11:39:52 MR update 19/03/18 Issues on hold pending outcome of neighbourhood plan. No further action at this stage

05/06/2017 09:25:58 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.

19/09/2017 13:41:52 MR update 01/09/17. Metro-counts programmed for September / October 17. Report results back to future meeting. To be combined with issue 5288 below. Awaiting outcome of Neighbourhood Plan process before further action is considered.

19/06/2017 13:33:05 Metro-counts to be undertaken on both Sandpits lane and Green Lane


Speeding traffic both ways on Sandpits Lane in Sherston. This is a constant problem as the lane is a cut through to avoid the village and is used by cars trucks and agricultural vehicles as well as many pedestrians. The current speed limit is 30 mph which I believe is too high as poses a risk to children pets or cars exiting driveways and people walking along the lane. There are many inconsiderate drivers who speed down the lane and I feel this poses a real accident risk.
