Traffic in Yatton is a major concern for residents.


POLICE and villagers in Yatton will work together to address concerns raised regarding the presence of lorries on the village’s roads.

Members of Yatton Partners and Communities Together (PACT) will visit businesses in the village alongside PCSO Adam Clarke to work out ways for HGVs to pass through the village safely.

Nearby businesses were invited to the village’s most recent PACT meeting on October 1 to discuss HGV concerns, but only one firm – Smart Systems Ltd – sent along representatives.

Smart said its drivers are told not to use Yatton High Street between 8am and 9am and 3pm and 4pm and are ‘disciplined’ if caught speeding.

The next PACT meeting will be on November 19 at 7.30pm, in the Hangstones Pavilion in Stowey Road.
