Bottom Lane traffic, Consultation With Parishioners
Regarding the proposed changes to Bottom Lane.
Following the recent production of the report for the Traffic in Villages Initiative, members of the Parish Council met with Wiltshire Highways to discuss the main issues such as speeding through the village and parking. One of the problems raised was the concerns of residents in Bottom Lane who have for some time complained about the speed of traffic along the lane particularly from the direction of Aldbourne.
Highways suggested that it might be acceptable for Bottom Lane to become one way, with entry only from the village alongside the Parklands and with no entry from the Aldbourne direction. There would continue to be contra flow for cyclists. This is clearly a significant change and it can only go ahead after consultation and with the approval of the village.
The Parish Council want to hear from villagers whether
- A one way system should be introduced or
- Whether the current system should remain in place
Please can you let the Parish Council have your views either for or against by May 13th 2013 by email to the Parish Clerk or telephone 841270, or leave a message here on the village website.
