Issue Summary

CATG speeding vehicals down Trow Lane SN15 4DL


Latest Update

15/09/2018 06:29:21 Request was for signs warning about horses. Parish Council’s view is that people driving on country lanes should expect horses and people in the road and would not support additional signage.

10/07/2018 15:14:40 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.

CATG Action / Recommendation

15/09/2018 06:29:21 Parish Council does not support further action so issue will be closed.
