Timelines and Initial Actions

Thank you for signing up to and supporting the Tickenham Road Action Group. We aim to get regular communications out to you to help influence the road traffic plans impacting the village.   

There are some key dates and actions for you:

  1. Tickenham Road Action Group Inaugural meeting to be held at 7pm on Friday February 15th 2019 at the Tickenham Village Hall. The meeting will confirm the group’s terms of reference, elect the Group committee members and update on progress/upcoming events. We hope as many of you as possible will be able to attend. The terms of reference are on the website. We will put an agenda for the meeting on the website near to the meeting time.
  2. Public Meeting with CLLR Nigel Ashton organised by the Tickenham Parish Council. A further consultation document will be issued early in February.  Known as the Joint Local Transport Plan, it is really the detail of the proposals in the Joint Spatial Plan (November 2018). Cllr Nigel Ashton and an appropriate North Somerset Council officer have agreed to attend a meeting for Tickenham residents on MONDAY 4th MARCH from 6.00 until 7.00 p.m. at the NSC offices, Castlewood, Clevedon.   Visitors’ parking at Castlewood is very limited, so please share transport with your neighbours.  The key dates for the JLTP are: Consultation opens – 6th Feb, Consultation closes – 20th March
  3. We would recommend that you register on the Joint Spatial Plan website to receive the JLTP at the earliest opportunity. To register you will need to visit the following page:  https://www.jointplanningwofe.org.uk/consult.ti/system/register
  4. Please share this email with any concerned residents and encourage them to signup to support the TRAG at www.trag.org.uk. Please also encourage all individuals in your household to sign up – as the more members we have the bigger the voice we speak with.

  1. If you are looking for evidence to build up a picture of the current traffic, can I suggest the following for your consideration,
    1. Log the number of utility repairs through the village and the queues it creates. There were 2 in Jan. and 2 I know of so far in Feb. The HGVs must contribute to the wear and tear causing the damage.
    2. Contact the 3 emergency providers to get them on board.
    3. Take photographs of HGVs passing each other, particularly near the Panda crossing to highlight how narrow the carriageway is.
    4. Currently there is a large number of quarry lorries speeding through the village. This will increase dramatically as new developments begin.
    5. Take REAR VIEW PICTURES of families walking to school to show how dangerous and narrow the pavement is. Get the Headmaster and Governors on board.
    6. In the last few days there has been damage to three separate stone walls in the village.
    7.Not all bus stops have ‘safe havens’ to wait at. Outside No.55 is very bad, plus one by Rookery and another 2 by the Star P.H.
    8. Speed bumps – not really practical because of the emergency vehicles.
    9. Signs through the village saying ‘No more Traffic’ /’Give us a bypass’

    1. Hi Pam,
      Thanks for the useful comments. I’ll put these in with those that we collected at the meeting on Friday to be discussed at the Steering Group.
      Regards
      Bruce
