The speed restrictions were reviewed at the PC meeting on the 9.11.21
The current position regarding the implementation of the 30mph limit has been pursued by District Councillor Steve Hogg who has provided an update as follows:-
“The Parish council fought hard to define, design, fund and seek agreement for the existing 30mph plans, and through no fault of its own, now face a delay on its implementation.
I believe a lot of this work was also informed by local opinion, and so it’s right that it should be followed through.
I’ve been chasing Mike Solomon and Highways on this regularly, and Gemma Dando has confirmed that..
a) All PCs are to be given a published report showing all programmed works on it with timescales. This will really help as the report will confirm that the Cleeve scheme is still on it
b) That the scheme will be implemented in the 2022/2023 financial year.”
During the meeting, there was the consideration of the “Cleeve Hill Road, Road Safety Survey” produced by residents.
It was resolved as follows:-
That, at this stage, the scheme as already approved should proceed as the alternative would mean that there would be nothing in place and would lead to even more delays.
That at the Annual Meeting in early 2022 a forum be created to discuss road safety throughout the parish.
That might include 20mph in various locations, or other options such as signage.
The forum would include District Councillor Steve Hogg, representatives of the Police, North Somerset Council and the village community.
The aim will be to create a long-term strategy that best meets the needs of all residents across all areas of the village.
