What has been done so far

The Parish Council engaged with Wiltshire Council to have the issue reviewed by way of raising an Issue sheet and physical visits from the Highways team to see the problem at first hand. The buildout at one end of the chichane was redesigned and road markings re-applied in a new location further back. The works appear to have made the problem worse and more people are complaing si much so that Mr Steve Hind was agian engaged and the problem handed to Tina Giles of the County Road Safety team handed the issue this led to a site visit on 11th October from Colin Reeves who visited the location on 3no. occassions and concluded that Give way markings should be re-located further back which will encourage vehicles moving towards the village to manoeuvre further from the pavement however it has to be noted that he did not review traffic in the opposite direction leaving the village which drives very close to the kerb which can be very disturbing if a large lorry.

What would resolve issue

Lydiard Millicent Parish Council would like to see the Chichane revisited and works carried out as proposed by Colin Reeves with regards the Giveway markings and a review of out going traffic proformed all at no cost to the Parish as the problem should have been properly reviewed internally at WCC and works carried out accordingly.
