A parish council meeting will be held later this year for frustrated Banwell residents to discuss traffic issues.

The latest traffic incident took place last weekend, when a coach hit a cottage and become wedged as it tried to turn out of Church Street.

The fire brigade arrived on the scene to try to free the vehicle and police officers closed the road while the work was carried out.

A spokesman for Banwell Parish Council said: “Both North Somerset Council and Banwell Parish Council are very aware of the traffic problems in Banwell and are constantly working together to try to find practical solutions.

“We appreciate how frustrating it is for residents, but urge drivers to take care when driving through Banwell.

“There will be a parish council meeting in Banwell Village Hall later this year simply to discuss the traffic problems.

“A representative from the North Somerset Council highways department will be present to answer questions. The public are encouraged to attend.”

The date of the meeting will be published on the parish council website once it is confirmed.
