What's On in The Hendreds from Friday 17th March 2017

Dangerous Proposal
As described in the Bulletin, the Pye 3 development of 46 houses
north of the A417 includes a narrow section of shared walkway/cycleway
on the south side of the busy A417 close to the junction with White Road. 
We consider this to be dangerous. It will be the only pedestrian access
to the village facilities for future residents of the Pye 3 site.
A recently issued guidance document from the County Council states
the minimum width for this type of joint footway/cycle path is 2.5m;
the proposed width is only just 2m and immediately adjacent to the traffic
on the A417.
As part of the Pye 3 development the design for this cycleway/walkway has
unfortunately received planning permission, and can be built, but we believe
that, even though it is approved, it would be irresponsible to build it as
We are therefore working to get the shared walkway/cycleway changed to avoid
danger to the future residents of the Pye 3 development, who will become
members of our community.
We recognise that this change will not be easy to achieve, but our case will
be much stronger if we have local support.
Please email crossing@hendred.org if you support our effort to make this
access safer.
