RESIDENTS of Banwell’s High Street will be consulted over measures designed to ease the roads traffic woes.

The plans, which were put together by a working group consisting of residents, members of Banwell Parish Council and the village’s North Somerset Council representative Tim Marter, include putting in additional speed humps to slow down traffic.

Residents have complained about an increasing number of motorists causing damage to homes along High Street and putting pedestrians at risk for several years.

The group’s proposals, which also include adding a ‘ghost pavement’ to the road’s narrowest part to discourage wider vehicles from attempting to go through, were discussed at a meeting of the parish council on June 11.

Parish clerk Kevin Barrett said: “Once we have residents’ views, we’ll decide what recommendations to make to North Somerset Council.”
