Traffic Update December 2018
The Parish Council has compiled a report on the current traffic situation covering speed, congestion and safety. This is available to download along with the summary results of recent surveys and the proposal by CWAC for double yellow lines in the centre of the village. These can be downloaded using the following links.
As this topic is complex, the Parish Council will be holding two village meetings in January or February 2019 (dates to be confirmed) to present this report, take questions and receive feedback from residents. The results of which will be used to refine proposals to be put forward to the residents in a referendum in 2019.’
Previous Updates on Christleton Traffic Proposals
Following on from discussions on traffic issues at the Christleton Fete, subsequent comments and suggestions from parishioners and consultations with others, the Parish Council has produced an Update on Traffic Proposals.
The Parish Council is continuing to implement the Traffic Strategy and the current position on other initiatives remains as follows
20mph Speed Limit
In January 2016 CW&C implemented a policy to install 20 mph zones in the Chester Area with funding from CW&C. As Christleton had already been assessed it was one of the first schemes to be implemented. The 20 mph zone is now in place.
The scheme will be assessed in November to see if the measures in place are working. If it is not as planned other traffic measures will be examined.
The Chester Villages Ward Speeding Group has been formed with a representative from each Parish Council. They are having regular meetings with the Police and the minutes of recent meetings with the Villages Ward Speeding Group and the Police are available from the following links.
