Weobley Neighbourhood Plan

The Weobley Neighbourhood Development Plan has now completed its Regulation 16 consultation and examination. Subject to the Parish Council formally adopting it the Plan will go to referendum in the near future.

Information and copies of the Plan documents are available to view on the NDP website: http://weobleyndp.weebly.com 

TRAFFIC AND PARKING ISSUES

The Parish Council is aware that the village is becoming increasingly congested with traffic, reaching gridlock on some occasions, with street parking, including instances of illegal or inconsiderate parking, adding to the problem.

The village roads were not designed for the level of traffic or the size of vehicles we are now experiencing, nor for the increase in car ownership and the need for somewhere to park. Development traffic has only added to the problem and the increase in village residences will ultimately mean more vehicles using the roads.

The Council is trying to address this issue but there is, of course, no quick and easy solution. A working group has been tasked to identify the areas with the worst issues and investigate any options for alleviating or improving the situation.
