Issue Duration

Many years

Who is Affected

Castle Combe has an estimated 90000 visitors annually most of whom park in the Unitary Council car park at the top of the hill. The only pedestrian route to the village is shared with numerous vehicles and there is insufficient space for a pavement. A website quote on Trip Advisor reads as follows and illustrates the problem all too clearly It was a terrifying and awful experience and I would not recommend anyone with small children to walk down the lane from the car park.

What has been done so far

Councillors convened with Principal Traffic Engineer and proposed that a 20 mph limit would be more appropriate than the existig 30 mph.

What would resolve issue

Formal investigation into the feasibility and costs of implementing a revised speed limit together with requisite signage.

Who needs to come together

Highways and Parish Council.
