  • Notification that the Town Councils interest in the Devolution Pilot has been accepted, and that the Councils name is on the list to be submitted to ECC.
  • Notification of the Church Road Junction/Well Street, Spring Chase and Ladysmith Avenue scheme, which has been through the validation process, and a feasibility study will be carried out with the intention at looking at the following ideas:-
  1. Removing and reconstructing a larger pedestrian refuge island on the B1029 Church Road/Ladysmith Avenue along with new tactile paving on the footways. In conjunction with this, looking at widening the existing footway on the northern side with the possibility of amending the carriageway hatch markings, to try and slow vehicle speeds when leaving Church Road and heading down Ladysmith Avenue.
  2. Looking at the feasibility of a mini roundabout at the Spring Road/Seaview Road junction. However, due to the expanse of carriageway space available and potential level issues, this is not expected to be a viable option that could progress.

iii.           Investigating the possibility of blocking off the end of Seaview Road to vehicular traffic on a permanent basis, whilst leaving access and space for pedestrians and cyclists. This may well require a an informal consultation with the local residents.

  1. Combining ii and iii above, to possibly make it achievable for a mini roundabout to be investigated.

There was also noticeable camber on the carriageway adjacent to the exiting pedestrian refuse. This will need to be taken into consideration during the feasibility study. This is also the case for the whole carriageway area on the approached to the different junctions, where various cambers/level issues were observed.

It has been recommended that this is progressed to feasibility, the cost of the study will be £6,500. This can be discussed and recommended for funding at the next Local Highway Panel. (Copied to all Councillors).
