Road Safety – Update and Consultation

16122791003 171df5c832 z

An update has been posted to the road safety and traffic management page, covering driver education, speed limits and speed reduction. Volunteer for community speedwatch if you haven’t already.

Also added to the page are the redesign proposals for Poplars Lane/Walgrave Road and Back Lane/Moulton Road junctions. Whilst the Annual Parish Meeting last May was in favour of the general purpose of the proposed redesigns, the Parish Council was asked to consult on the final draft designs once they were available. Please provide any comments to Lisa ( by the end of January – these will be considered at February’s Parish Council meeting.

Road Safety : Speedwatch 2018 – Please Help

image001With your support the Parish Council wants to continue with Community Speedwatch in 2018. You will know that we have speed problems in Holcot, and that the Parish Council continue to push for extending the 30mph limit outside the village and potentially creating a 20mph zone in the village.

As in 2017 we will get use of the speed gun, and associated signage. We need volunteers to support the community in raising awareness of excessive speed over three weeks. All it takes is an hour a session – the more volunteers the fewer the sessions any individual has to undertake. Please email Lisa to volunteer.

The information we have;

  • Training is on 2 June (there are other dates available)
  • We are sharing the equipment with Moulton this year – week’s commencing 16 June, 30 June, 14 July

Even if you can’t help one of these weeks, please volunteer.
