In response to concerns raised by the community, the Council will host a public exhibition event to discuss options for a potential traffic management scheme in Llantrisant Old Town.
Officers recognise that concerns over pedestrian safety, as well traffic speed and volume, are important issues for the local community – and they have been considering how best to ease this problem through a highway improvement scheme.
Following a detailed study, the Council is now in a position to discuss potential options and has developed draft proposals based on the introduction of a 20mph speed limit and sections of localised traffic calming measures.
From Monday, October 21, the Council will be asking residents what they think of the draft proposals – which will be available to view on the Council’s website at www.rctcbc.gov.uk/traffic. Residents can have their say by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, which will be read by Officers.
Alternatively, a public exhibition will take place at Llantrisant Working Men’s Club on Thursday, October 24. This event is split into two sessions (10am-midday and 5pm-7pm). Residents are invited to ‘drop-in’ to either session to view the proposals in more detail, and raise any queries with Officers.
This presents the first opportunity for residents to discuss their concerns with officers and have their say about a potential future scheme.
If the plans are taken forward, residents will be presented with a formal consultation opportunity in the near future. Any future scheme, for completion during spring 2020, would rely upon securing significant funding.
The Council urges local residents to attend one of the ‘drop-in’ sessions on Thursday – or alternatively view the plans and have their say online – in order to help Officers plan and shape this important scheme going forward.
