In July a proposal was suggested for a one-way street plan (shown below) in Castle Street, Rosemary Lane, Stour Street and Beer Cart Lane area and a letter sent to the CCC.

In response to this a letter received from the CCC saying a new traffic officer is being appointed, but it is thought that the revised street plan  would not be accepted as a priority as it is not classed as ‘Hot-Spot’. As nearby developments are completed the situation can be reassessed.

A further copy of a letter was sent to the KCC concerning the Access only / One-Way system and a copy of their reply.

Martin Vye is looking into traffic controls to reduce speed

A second option as suggested by Martin Vye would be to have Rosemary Lane, Stour Street as well as Hospital Lane to be allocated for access use only. Apparently there is a diagram showing this, which we unfortunately do  not have a copy.

Castle Street traffic:

Problems with traffic parking and turning outside of Caxtons with the bollards blocking entry.

JE to investigate.
