Yelling Village Plan and Traffic Management Plan – what’s really important to the village

As part of the Parish Council’s work, a project team was formed in Spring 2011 to produce a Village Plan.

This is a really important document which reflects the views, concerns and aspirations of the village as a whole and will be used as a valuable reference point by the Parish Council when assessing priorities. It will also lend considerable weight to any future discussions with local governing bodies abbout what the village sees as its priorities, precisely because it is based on the views of its residents.

The survey covers a wide range of topics such as traffic, crime, environmental issues, planning, transport and village amenities.

When the research phase was closed, 109 completed questionnaires had been received – a terrific response from the village and we are very grateful for your support. Special thanks to Armando Fusco who project- managed the production of the report so ably.

Since late 2014 when the 40mph limit was established and the traffic calming chicane was installed at the western end of the village, the Parish Council have considered further measures to minimise the effects of the volume, speed and size of vehicles passing through the village.

After researching the options, and presenting the priorities to residents at an Open Meeting in the Village Hall on Aug 17th 2015, the Traffic Management Plan was finalised to guide the Parish Council’s allocation of funds from the precept, grants, donations and / or fundraising initiatives to have the greatest impact after considering effectiveness, cost, speed of implementation and ease ie lack of legislative hurdles.

The approved plan is posted in PDF format in the link below.
