To set out the County Council position on pedestrian improvements for Battle Hill, Battle


15.1     The Lead Member considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport.


15.2     Maya Andrew and Ollie Tomasetti, students at Claverham Community College and Mr Leighton Morgan, a member of staff, spoke in support of the petition.   




15.3     RESOLVED to advise the petitioners that (1) the request for a pedestrian crossing was previously assessed using the scheme prioritisation process for local transport improvements; and


(2) due to a recent crash involving a pedestrian within the vicinity, the County Council have commissioned a feasibility study through the 2018/19 capital programme for local transport improvements to ascertain whether a pedestrian facility should be delivered along Battle Hill. 




15.4     The scheme was previously not ranked sufficiently highly for inclusion onto the capital programme for transport improvements.  However, due to the severity of a recent pedestrian-related crash, the County Council has commissioned a feasibility study to ascertain whether a pedestrian crossing facility and any other speed reducing measures should be delivered.  The study will be funded through the 2018/19 capital programme.
