No 63 Bus Diversions

No 63 Bus Diversions

Statement from Stagecoach:-

Unfortunately we have experienced difficulties with the contractors so have needed to change our service 63 in the morning peak. We have been unable to gain access through the closure this week as we had expected. Service 63 can have access but only from Pitchcombe, therefore 2 services towards Gloucester will not be able to serve Paganhill, Whiteshill or Edge.
Full details are attached. Afternoon services remain unchanged. More »

Traffic Calming Measures Consultation

Traffic Calming Measures Consultation

Traffic Survey Results and Statement

Painswick Parish Council would like to thank the local community for their fantastic engagement with the recent traffic calming consultation.

Responses have been validated against the electoral roll and a total of 476 valid votes were received, which represent 25% of the Painswick ward population. More »

The final results are:

Yes - 246 (52%)

No - 230 (48%)

In light of this very close result, we do not believe there is demonstrable overwhelming public support to pursue a full traffic calming scheme within the 20mph zone at this time.

However, with the strongly felt concerns about speeding through Painswick, we will hold a meeting with Gloucestershire County Council. This will include discussion regarding potential measures as part of the proposed resurfacing scheme through Painswick, so any opportunities relating to this scheme are maximised. Specifically, the survey identified overwhelming support for measures by residents along the Cheltenham Road, so this 20mph section of the A46 between the traffic lights and the Old Fire Station could have the potential for some traffic calming measures.

We will also be recommencing discussions with the Police and David Drew MP to consider how we can secure greater support for neighbourhood issues, including speeding enforcement. » Less
