Highways

Brief

The Highways committee liaise between West Sussex County Council and the Parish Council with the aim of maintaining standards and appropriate safety measures necessary on our public roads within the parish.

There are 2 major approved projects in the pipeline for 2017/18 financial year and the committee are pursuing a number of projects with the aim of making our roads and pathways safer for both motorists and pedestrians. In particular these projects are looking at items such as Vehicle Activated Signs, alternative traffic calming methods at trouble spots within the village, potential new speed limits and a significant Community Highways Scheme centred around the safety of children and parents accessing Easebourne School. The Highways committee also look after the Community Speedwatch Scheme in the village.

If you would like to raise any Highways concerns or have any suggestions for possible projects, please get in touch with us via the contacts page.

Get involved in 2017 – Speedwatch

From the fantastic reaction to the village gates and to conversations with residents we know that speed through the village is a major concern.  With all Parish Council initiatives for roads in our village we need to collect data to submit with any road proposals to West Sussex.  Speedwatch is one way which we can do this but it does rely on volunteers.  If you want to get involved there would be a short training session which we will provide and you can then join the list of volunteers and get Speedwatching.  If you are interested in learning more please contact us by clicking the button below…

Easebourne Village installs gates

Mike Noble, the head of the Parish Council’s highways committee met up with a band of volunteers from West Sussex County Council as well as a volunteer from the village and a parish council volunteer to dig holes and install the village gates.  The gates were funded through the New Homes Bonus and thanks to the hardy volunteers who turned up on a frosty morning there were no labour costs.  The gates have been installed on the A286 village entrance as well as the A272 entrance and will hopefully act as a reminder to drivers that they are entering a village and encourage drivers to slow down.  A great example of what can be achieved through volunteering whether on the Parish Council or otherwise.  Thank you to all involved.

The next village volunteer project is the burial ground tidy up on 14 January and if you are interested in joining the list of volunteers for this project please contact the parish clerk.
