Woodplumpton Traffic Calming Plans

The Parish Council has long recognised the concerns of residents regarding the traffic issues that affect us all - and these concerns will only increase due to the amount of new development in and around the Parish.

Parish Councillors have worked very closely with Lancashire County Council highway engineers, to draw up traffic calming plans which aim to reduce the negative impacts of speeding and poor driving and also aim to reduce incidents of pollution and damage to the environment in which we live.

Both parties have now agreed a traffic calming scheme for Woodplumpton, which aims to achieve the above. The plans, which include a new junction to leave / enter the village at Newsham Hall Lane, can be accessed below.

Every element of the scheme has been numbered in a 'whole scheme plan' which can be enlarged and viewed on screen. Alternatively, you can make a note of the relevant plan number and view a detailed map of a specific location. If you have any questions regarding the detail of the scheme - please contact Cllr Greaves who has been leading on the Woodplumpton scheme.

LCC have agreed that comments should be returned to the Parish Council before the 10th Jan 2022 after that date, a summary report will be produced.

To ensure the report is as accurate as possible, all supporting comments or objections - MUST be submitted in writing either to a Parish Councillor or by email to [email protected]

All replies will be logged and given a reference number. Once the replies have been analysed, LCC will consider issuing the formal Traffic Regulation Orders enabling this much needed scheme to go ahead.

All Members of the Parish Council hope that residents will support them in their aim to improve safety on our local roads.

Cllr Matthew Greaves, Chairman of the Parish Council stated, ‘It has taken a lot of hard work and commitment from the Parish Councillors to get to the point where we can announce these schemes and implement what we believe to be the best, and possibly the only option, to make a real difference to the safety of our community, both now and in the future.

The Parish Council hopes to announce plans for the Catforth scheme in the New Year.
