The slip road was not designed specifically for local traffic. Councillors present agreed that a letter should be sent to MP Vara expressing how disappointing this reply was and requesting support. Cllr A Coe to be asked for dates of all accidents at this location.

19 Correspondence
19.1 Correspondence from Residents Footpath along Elton Road to Wansford. This was discussed and several safety issues considered i.e. where would the footpath cross the road, where would it start, how many people were likely to use the footpath and should it be extended beyond Water’s Edge?

July 2007

The meeting of the Parish Council was held at The Environment Centre, Stibbington on Tuesday, 3rd July 2007 at 7.30pm.

Present:

Councillor S German Councillor I Turner Mrs S Kudlinski (Clerk)
Councillor P Gatheral Councillor M Bradshaw
Councillor A Coe

Councillors were in attendance from 7.30pm

County Councillor M McGuire was present throughout the meeting

1 member of the public was present, who raised a question about the possibility of a footpath from Water’s Edge into Wansford. 14 houses are currently occupied on the development. County Councillor McGuire was invited to comment. Footways can be provided through the jointly funded minor improvement scheme operated by CCC in conjunction with Hunts DC and the Parish Council. There was discussion about whether a footway was considered as part of the development, but it appears that no such condition was imposed on the developers. The cost of any path was likely to be considerable and disproportionate to the number of people likely to use it. If a footpath was not viable then the resident felt that a speed limit was necessary for the safety of pedestrians. The chairman thanked the resident and agreed to discuss the matter again at the next meeting.

The Chairman, Cllr German opened the meeting, at 7.40pm.

Clerk to write to West Highways to request removal. Also mentioned was the parking of cars on the side of the road and the footpath as Church Lane bends round to the right.

44

Speeding through village – Elton Road into Wansford – County Councillor McGuire’s response. CCC has a new policy and intends to impose a 30mph limit in most built up areas in villages. However, CC McGuire felt that it was unlikely that a 30mph limit would be imposed at this location as the police will not enforce it at present. Discussion took place regarding this issue as nothing ever seems to happen. Everyone is asked to keep informing the police of any traffic infringement they notice. Clerk to put in village newsletter requesting residents to let the police know of any incidents however minor.

Present:

Councillor S German Councillor J White Mrs S Kudlinski (Clerk)
Councillor P Gatheral Councillor M Bradshaw
Councillor A Coe

Councillors were in attendance from 7.30pm

5 members of the public were present. Questions were asked about how the problem of traffic speeding along Elton Road was being dealt with. It was felt that the 30mph signs were now only effective for approximately 10% of the time. Locally it is agreed that the problem is getting worse. Some discussion took place about how speed bumps would look and how they would affect the overall appearance of the village. If there was enough local response then it may be possible to hold a public meeting to get all local residents views about the problem. Financing any possible changes was also discussed. This would be revisited as it was already on the agenda see item 66.

The Chairman, Cllr German opened the meeting, at 7.30pm.
