Third option for crossing in the centre of the village.
Cllr Roger Cashmore shared the lack of enthusiasm for either of the proposals for establishing a light controlled crossing in the middle of the village and has come up with a third option to be considered in the consultation process.
At the road safety group meeting on 3rd Sept. Jamie Hulland Transport Strategy and Road Safety Manager (DCC) agreed to arrange for the proposal to be the subject of a Safety Audit. He agreed to report back to the next meeting in October.
The main benefit of option c) is that retains the same siting for the proposed toucan pedestrian crossing while enforcing one way access into and from Godolphin close around the existing bus stop island. This option retains the existing road, layout and, apart from possible additional signage and road marking, requires no major additional road engineering to the cost of installing the pedestrian crossing.
Option c) has now been added to the Parish Council web site (https://bit.ly/30y2mKj). You are most welcome to make any comments on this new option in writing to the Parish Clerk ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) You will also be pleased to know that DCC highways have agreed to conduct a full safety audit in the village in the near future.
The proposed third option is shown below.

Below are the original plan and the plan approved for outline permission.
