New Braunton parking restrictions – you have until 16 May to object!

As you can see from the proposal below (and also here), Devon County Council are proposing to make significant changes to parking in particular areas of Braunton, in particular on specified lengths of Barton Lane, Burrows Park, Chaloners Road, Church Street, Exeter Road, Gubbins Lane, Lower Park Road, Palmers Close, Second Field Lane, South View, Station Close and Station Road. If this affects you or you have a view on it, you can see the proposed draft Order here. Also, the main page is here and the page to register any objection is here. You might also consider lobbying the County Councillor for Braunton Rural who is Caroline Chugg. Her details are here.

A zebra crossing here would make the crossing from the churchyard a lot safer…

Public meeting about Braunton’s traffic situation!

I’ve just received an email from Steve Baker at Pickwell Manor supporting a public meeting which is to take place in Braunton looking at the village’s traffic problems and potential solutions. The details are as follows:

At last – a real solution to Braunton’s traffic problems? “We complain about the traffic and blame other drivers – but could it be traffic control that is the problem?” asks Martin Cassini of Equality Streets, who with Keith Firth (of SKM Colin Buchanan) will present and discuss specific proposals for Braunton.

You are invited to a special meeting on Thursday 4th July 2013 at Braunton Parish Hall EX33 2ES, for a 7.45pm start.

Steve adds: “It would be good if you are planning to look up Equality Streets online. In particular, view the first and third videos at the Media tab. These show the scope in a sociable design – as distinct from traffic management “solution” – to Braunton’s road safety and congestion problems.” You can see Equality Streets’ website here.

As a post-script, as I understand it, the meeting is to be a public meeting in which locals will be invited to speak so maybe consider going along and having your say!

Are Braunton’s traffic lights out of sync and exacerbating queues?

Someone’s suggested that the queues in the middle of the village are being made worse by the traffic lights outside The George being out of sync with the main lights. Has anyone else noticed this?

Braunton Car Park has height restriction barrier removed

With thanks to Ben Byrom of West Cross Garage for this post

Great news for Braunton and sensible too. The main village car park has had it’s height restriction barrier removed for a trial period of 8 months.

This now means that all you visitors that want to park in the village as a place to join up with the Tarka Cycle trial can do so without knocking your bikes off of your roof racks.

Surfers too can get your high top vans in to visit the Surf Museum and shop at all of our local surf shops.

Be careful. If you have a big vehicle you must not overhang into another place or you will get a ticket. The best place is use the overflow car park where you can over hang the grass.

Braunton is a great stop off point for everyone, Some great little shops in the main street and many places to eat. Please don’t drive through. We look forward to meeting you.

The village traders
