“We are delighted with the high level of public engagement in this consultation so far,” said the chairman of the sustainable travel committee, Tim Trimble.  

“At the same time, we are aware that some residents have not received survey booklets to their homes, so we are extending the deadline for responses to January 9 and holding another drop-in session on January 6.

“This will ensure that as many people as possible are able to have their say on the long-standing traffic issues in the town. 

“We would especially encourage residents to use the interactive map on the website to highlight particular main routes where they would like to see improvements.”
