The Parish Council carried out a Road Safety Survey in April 2021 and questionnaires were made available to all residents across the parish.  110 responses were received and it was evident that the main concerns in all areas of the parish are speeding vehicles and inconsiderate parking. 


The issues raised can be found in this road safety survey summary.

A meeting was held in October 2021 to discuss residents' concerns and a number of areas were identified where further discussion / research is needed.  These are summarised in the notes of the meeting.


A team of volunteers undertakes speed checks on Southam Lane and New Road and this data together with the data downloaded from the mobile vehicle activated speed (MVAS) signs will be used to form the basis of discussions with Gloucestershire County Council Highways Department and the police, as appropriate.

The monthly data reports extracted from the MVAS signs can be found below together with a separate analysis of traffic on car boot sale days:
