a.    Make Queniborough Roads Safer

 

A Petition is to be presented by Ms. J. Hardy, Headteacher of Queniborough CE Primary School signed by 687 local residents in the following terms:

 

We the undersigned ask the County Council to work with the residents of Queniborough to develop a plan for the village so that the children and residents can travel around the village safely and so reduce the need for vehicle journeys. Speeding, traffic, heavy lorries, the lack of pedestrian crossing are all issues in the emerging Neighbourhood Plan and we ask the County Council to join us in addressing these issues and improving the quality of life in our village. The petition is supported by Queniborough Parish Council, Queniborough Primary School, Transport Group of the Neighbourhood Plan.

Decision:

That the content of the petition be noted and that a report to the next meeting on the 6th June 2019 be supported.
