We are receiving numerous enquiries concerning traffic calming schemes in the parish. As you will know doubt have seen the delayed works at Pilning are now being undertaken, with Severn Beach to follow.
According to South Gloucestershire Council, the traffic calming scheme installed in Easter Compton, has been a success, as it brought down the speed of the vehicles travelling through the village to 20-25mph (compared to the previous 31mph).
However, the Parish Council were made aware of concerns that the scheme did not quite address the issues raised by the residents and that a lot of people felt that the money allocated by South Gloucestershire Council to road safety improvements in our Ward could have been better spent.
We also hear that residents are not convinced that the Easter Compton scheme will work well in other villages. We therefore feel that we should step in and help South Gloucestershire Council find the solution that will benefit our community.
