PARKING AND TRAFFIC SURVEY

Thank you to everyone that responded to our Parking and Traffic Survey.  The results of the survey are attached here: Parking and Traffic Survey Results

The survey provides the views of residents and the following petition was sent to Central Beds Council for consideration:

Petition 1. Reduce the speed limit on Church Road from 30mph to 20mph

Petition 2. Paint double-yellow lines in locations A and B on the attached map to enforce the highway code guidelines on parking distances from junctions, and at location C to improve safety for residents exiting Narrow Path.

Petition 3. Move the “No Through Road” signs at the top and bottom of Sandy Lane closer to the junction with Church Road so that they are visible and place a No Parking sign at the South (top of hill) entrance to Sandy Lane to discourage visitors from parking across Sandy Lane and blocking Sandy Lane residents in their homes.

Petition 4. Reinstate the missing “No Through Road” sign on Silverbirches Lane.

At a CBC Traffic Management meeting the following was agreed:

Re: Petition 1. The Highways officer will provide a further report at a future traffic management meeting once this point has been investigated with a recommendation to findings in relation to the concerns raised relating to the speed of vehicles on Church Road.


Re: Petition 2. The Highways officer will investigate the provision of double yellow lines on Church road and carry out the necessary Statutory Consultation


Re: Petitions 3. And 4. Highways officers will review the location of the signage and adjust where possible.

We await further information from CBC.
