Proposed Traffic Calming

The Parish Council has long recognised residents’ concerns around the traffic issues that affect all residents.

Complaints are raised frequently about the volume of traffic, the size of the vehicles, the excessive speed and inconsiderate parking and it is clear that pedestrian safety and the damage caused to rural roads is at the heart of people’s concerns.

Following a public consultation on the proposals in March 2019, the Parish Council has continued to work closely with officers from Lancashire County Council highways and together, we have drawn up a set of traffic calming measures for both Catforth and Woodplumpton.

You can use the full version (added below) to magnify a specific area or alternatively you can make a note of the number relating to the area you are interested in and you can print an enlarged plan of the area from the list below.

It has taken a lot of hard work and commitment from the Councillors to get to the point where we can announce these plans, which we believe will reduce the negative impacts of speeding and will help to reduce the volume of traffic and the number of incidents of inconsiderate driving and parking.
