New Footways Project – Village Consultation
(1 September – 25 October 2021)
The hazardous nature of our roads is the foremost village concern of the residents of Beech.
Over the period of the COVID pandemic the Beech Road Safety Working Group, on behalf of the Parish Council, has been working on a project to construct pedestrian footways along Medstead Road and Kings Hill, the main road through the village. The aim is to improve road safety for all road users, and to encourage walking and other non-vehicle travel within the village, thereby improving community cohesion, social interaction, recreation and health.
The Parish Council now has a proposed scheme that has passed Hampshire County Council’s initial safety audit, and so it is the right time to present the proposals to the residents of Beech to invite comments and suggestions, ahead of any further work.
View and comment on the proposals
After reviewing the Presentation document (and, if you wish, the full report), you should complete the Response Form and return it to the Parish Council by Monday 25 October. Full instructions for completion are given on the Response Form.
You can send your completed Response Form by email to firstname.lastname@example.org (our preference), or you can print the completed Response Form and return it to the Special Post Box on the railings by the village hall entrance.
If you have any queries, please email the Parish Clerk at email@example.com.
Display of the proposals at the Village Hall
The proposals will be on display on:
Sunday 12 September (10am-1pm)
Thursday 16 September (5pm-8pm)
Friday 8 October (2.30pm-5.30pm)
Sunday 10 October (10am-1pm).
Members of the Road Safety Working Group will be on hand to discuss the proposals, and answer any questions or concerns that you may have. If you wish to discuss any matter, we recommend you do so at one of these sessions before completing your Response Form.
PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS CONSULTATION, AND MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!
We welcome and value your opinions, and will consider all comments seriously.
