A local resident has complained to South Somerset District Council about about the speed of the traffic entering and exiting the village Townsend /Heale lane end and has encouraged other people who are also concerned to do likewise.

He/she writes

"The speed of the cars is ridiculous they ignore the 30 sign at the Curry Rivel sign and don't slow down until they pass the top of Stoney lane, and only slow them as they have to due to parked cars.

There needs to be traffic coming as in most other villages or at the very least more signage. A speed camera could make a lot of money in a very short time!

This end of the village is the access to Westfield and children crossing this end of the village take their life in their hands. Don't let's wait until there's an accident.

Does anyone else agree or find the speed an issue??"

If you have a concern about speeding in the village you can report it to the local speed watch group. The contact is Robert Crowley robert.crowley242@btinternet.com
