As the lockdown is being eased we have reminded NCC lighting dept to carry out an assessment to look at the feasibility of adding a street light along this path. A senior officer will visit the area to look into this suggestion asap.
Following many discussions with residents about their concerns regarding vehicles being driven at excessive speed along Castlefields drive we asked a senior officer to look into improving the road safety in the area.
Research has been conducted and a design brief prepared by NCC advisors is expected to be completed by the end of this month, after this is provided consideration will be given for the speed limit in that area will be decreased to 20mph or/ and any other measures they propose.
This research and any measures to be added will be partly funded by Gordon & Ken’s annual members allowance scheme.
We will provide additional information in August 2020.
A reduction in the speed limit etc will make it a less desirable route for drivers cutting through to the bypass etc.

See a link to 62 documents referred to in the 2016 report. (this is only part of that application)
Following comments made by residents about some vehicles being driven along this road at excessive speed and the location of the 30mph zone we asked a NCC team to look at methods for improving road safety.
The design brief will be completed by the middle of next month and the recommendations will then be considered.
