There will be a public meeting in September to look at different options for making the roads safer and our village a more pleasant environment in which to live. Everyone in the community will have the opportunity to look at the suggestions being put forward by the Safer Roads Group and to put forward their own ideas.
The Safer Roads Group was formed by the Parish Council and includes Councillors and members from the community. They are actively looking at ways of making the village safer.
No date has been set yet for the public meeting but it is likely to be on a Saturday afternoon in September. The date, time and place will be communicated nearer the time, but with enough advance notice to give people space to think.
The Group feeds into a Multi-Agency Group that includes representatives from Shropshire Council. The next meeting of this Group is in October and it is intended to take the ideas discussed at the Public Meeting into that meeting.
In the meantime, we can all contribute. The general messages to everyone in the community are:
- Drive safely and lawfully within the speed limits
- Cut back vegetation so that pavements are not obstructed and views along the road are not obscured
- Do not drive or park on pavements because this forces pedestrians and child cyclists into the road and obscures views along the road. Instead park on the road because this will have the effect of slowing traffic down.
