TRAFFIC IN THE PARISH OF AFFPUDDLE & TURNERSPUDDLE
SURVEY OF PARISHONERS

Numerous residents have commented on the very considerable number of large agricultural vehicles, lorries and cars driving through the village, to an extent that is on occasion shocking. Drivers often appear oblivious to the needs of other road users, failing to appreciate that the local roads are narrow and that when being passed, pedestrians, dog walkers, horse & bicycle riders require plenty of space. Roadside property structures are at risk, noise and air pollution are increasing.

A group of parishioners has therefore come together to consider what action can be taken to improve matters and we are agreed that the first step is to better understand the level of concern among the wider community. We therefore draw your attention to a survey accessed either
via Survey Monkey https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/J6WFTB/ Alternatively, if you prefer to complete a paper version these will be available at the village shop from Wednesday (21st) . Paper versions can be returned to a box located in the village shop or, if that is inconvenient, through the letter box at Hanthorpe Cottage, Briantspuddle, the first house on the right as you drive into the village from the north. We can deliver a paper version for those that require this service, please call Peter on 07900 216162 to arrange. Once the survey is completed Peter will arrange for collection. Thank you so much in anticipation of your assistance with this survey – the results will be published in the parish magazine and on the community website.
