Parish Councils, although having no statutory powers to make decisions on highways matters, do have the ability to negotiate with, and the power to influence, those other organisations.
The Parish Council has been working with officers at Hampshire County Council in regard to community lead initiatives on Church Lane. The County Council has introduced this new initiative to provide an opportunity for Parish Councils, along with local community groups, to be able to fund a range of traffic measures that fall outside the scope of County Council funding.
Limited budgets now mean Highway Authority funded traffic measures can only generally be considered at locations where accidents resulting in personal injury have occurred.
A meeting with Hampshire Highways identified that installing Informal ‘courtesy crossings’ for pedestrians at Church Lane would be acceptable under this scheme and would highlight the most suitable place at which to cross the road. The proposals also include improvements to the bus stop location Nr Brickmakers Road.
