Tories fail to give road safety assurances at Manor Drive!

Manor Drive

At the last meeting of Full Council, I stood up and raised the issue of speeding and road safety in and around Manor Drive, with the Conservative’s Cabinet Member for Growth, Planning, and Housing Development.

For the record, I regularly receive messages from local people who complain of a range of speeding and poor driving in the area.

Given the planned opening of a new primary and secondary school in the coming years at this location, plus further additional housing, I asked for assurances that relevant and required road safety measures would be introduced, and whether we could look forward to a 20mph speed limit, specifically around the planned location of the schools?

Councillor Peter Hiller, responded:

“The main spine road through Paston Reserve, Manor Drive, is subject to a 30mph restriction, as it will be for the remainder of it when fully built. Our highways officers will of course to monitor the traffic and the issues ongoing.”

So not exactly the greatest response! But that said, I’ll continue to formally raise the matter and push for action.

Suspect that the Tories know their time is coming to an end at the Town Hall, so hopefully when we get a change in administration, we’ll start seeing some much more proactive attitudes?

PS – Before I forget, thank YOU to all those residents who have taken the time to contact me on this matter and please do FEEL free to post a comment or view below!

Getting the Tories at the Town Hall to plan for future problems is never easy!

    • Hi Ivan I’m afraid I do not have access to a list of streets? Or quantity of houses etc But might be worth checking with the planning department, but as houses are being built all the time it will be a bit of guess work.

Have YOUR say!
