In response to the ongoing parking and traffic issues on our patch OARA has embarked on a project to gather views from residents to get a comprehensive picture of the problems people face – and look for possible solutions. Dorothy Haslehurst, one of our members, has been collating all the replies and a summary of these to date is attached here. Our next steps are to meet with council officers in order to share information and consider feasibility and then arrange a dedicated meeting to report back and discuss possible future plans.
