Dear All,

There is going to be a Highways meeting at West Harptree Memorial Hall on Monday 31st October at 7:30pm to discuss and ask for public feedback on the road safety options for the village.

Options highlighted for public consultation include

  • A short virtual footpath from the rec to stop at the White Rose on the main road.
  • A flashing speed light on entry to the village.
  • An engineering study by BANES to assess future safety measures. (speed control and pedestrian safety)

On the same evening, there may be road closures in the village as the meeting ends. The Parish Council have spoken to the work depot about our meeting and the roadworks, and they have assured us that we can be given access to join and leave the meeting on the evening.
