Clutton road safety scheme unveiled to residents

Villagers will be able to find out more about a new road safety scheme for Clutton at the Annual Village Meeting on Monday 20th April.

The traffic calming measures, which have been drawn up by Bath and North East Somerset Council, will create safer walking routes through the village for schoolchildren and other pedestrians.

They include new footways protected by build-outs to slow motorists, give way stop points and a safe crossing area outside the school. Once these measures are in place Clutton will become eligible for a 20 mph speed limit.

The traffic calming measures have been drawn up following concerns from local residents, Clutton Primary School and the parish council about motorists speeding through the village.

The likely increase in construction traffic to service the planned housing developments in Maynard Terrace and at the Clovelly site have given the scheme added urgency.

A total of £30,000 has been made available by B&NES to fund the scheme which will also be supplemented by contributions from housing developers worth thousands of pounds.

Residents will be able to view the  plans and speak to members of the Parish Council at the Annual Village Meeting at 7PM on Monday, alternatively you can view the plans electronically below and send comments to clerk@clutton.org.uk or in writing to Clutton Parish Council, PO box 1287, Clutton, BS39 5XX.

We particularly want you to consider the plans in relation to your property and raise any issues that the highways officers may not have considered, using your local knowledge.
