09/01/2018 08:25:23 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.

Issue

I am writing on behalf of the residents of Tetbury Hill Gardens.Over the last few months it has become increasingly dificult to safely exit our lane onto Tetbury Hill.There has been more and more cars parked for long periods of time if not all day on the cemetery side of the road right up to the top end and the bollard. This completely blocks our view of cars coming up the hill as well producing a bottle neck. It is also not uncommon for the cars to be exceeding the speed limit on Tetbury Hill.Our understanding was that the parking area was primarily for use during school start and end times and not for ongoing parking.The hatched area at the top part has also worn away and is now ignored so cars are parked right up to our lane entrance.Several of the residents have reported near misses and we think it is a matter of time before there is an accident.Could consideration be given to what could be done to improve the situation.
