One of the most important issues currently affecting our Parish concerns traffic, with the safety of members of the public being a priority for this Council. This is an issue which affects the villages and also our rural roads. 

Public consultation, carried out by us in 2019, has shown that the excessive speed of vehicles is seen as being a critical factor and we are therefore seeking initially to reduce speed limits in conjunction with NYCC Highways and North Yorkshire Police and then improve the implementation of those speed limits by new signage and possibly by forming a Community Speed Watch team.

In order to keep you fully informed we are publishing the relevant documents so far. 

1 Document used for public consultation  Traffic questionnaire April 2019  

2 Analysis of results  
  Results of Traffic Questionnaire  

3 Submission made to Highways  

 KMLDPC TRAFFIC SAFETY DOCUMENT APPENDIX 1 (Traffic questionnaire April 2019)  


4 Response received Response from Highways which refers to a document concerning the Speed Management Protocol 20.2.18  

We will continue to discuss this matter at our meetings and decide how we can best reach a satisfactory resolution before a serious accident occurs. 

Following a decision made at our August meeting we have also written to local farmers asking them to abide by the 25mph speed limits for tractors at all times.
