Last Friday myself, officers and a council colleague, met with KCC officers to discuss the way forward on seeking solutions to the issue of speeding, poor road maintenance, and the funding of tools to help in traffic and speed reduction.

We will be preparing an information document for Parish Councils, and local communities, and presenting this to the Parish Forum and the JTB at Council. Additionally, all ward members will be given a copy so that they can share the information with their communities.
