Issue Summary

Speed of traffic and rat running Shrewton high Street


Latest Update

04/07/2018 12:22:38 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

CATG Action / Recommendation


Speeding non-local traffic diverting off the frequently congested A303 Stonehenge Section Rat-Running through B3086 Shrewton High Street and London Road in both directions placing residents at high level of risk owing to the lack of pavements or off-carriageway footpaths

What has been done so far

Shrewton Parish Council have in 2017 submitted a Substantive Highways Scheme Funding Bid for traffic calming measures in London Road which was rejected having been advised in 2015 Shrewtons High Street fulfilled all criteria for a 20mph speed limit this was nullified in 2017.

What would resolve issue

Allow us to submit a revised Substantive Highways Scheme Funding Bidwhich has a realistic chance of being approved for London Road Shrewton.
