27/06/2018 11:19:50 Update from CATG. Discussion on existing issues at this location and the unsuccessful substantive bid application which was submitted last year. Parish Council and Cllr Henry are planning to submit a pack to be assessed as part of the A303 proposals but this cannot be confirmed until that scheme is approved. Concerns raised over visibility of street lighting columns along London Road within the 30mph speed limit.

12/06/2018 12:07:00 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. This issue will be added to the next CATG agenda that will take place Monday 18 June 2018 10.00am-12.00pm Redworth Centre, Amesbury Leisure Centre, Antrobus Road, Amesbury SP4 7ND Your attendance will be required to enable any discussion to take place.
