Dear Resident,

You will no doubt be aware that there are concerns about the traffic and road safety on West End. The Town Council shares these concerns and the subject has been considered at five separate Council meetings over the past 18 months. North Yorkshire County Council are the Authority responsible for all highways issues including traffic and road safety matters and the Town Council must refer to them to request information, determine what options might be available and if there is any scope for action to remedy concerns about road safety in Kirkbymoorisde.

To date the Town Council has explored the options with NYCC Highways Authority of introducing a 20mph speed limit and a One way traffic system westbound on West End. The Town Council applauds the community for participating in a petition, initiated by a resident of West End. The petition, signed by 164 residents, clearly demonstrates the need to address the traffic concerns on West End.

Unfortunately NYCC Highways Authority have confirmed that neither implementation of a 20mph speed limit nor a One way traffic system are feasible due to restrictions of legislation. However, as a result of much deliberation it has been determined that there is one course of action that the Town Council can take, in conjunction with North Yorkshire County Council Highways Authority. The Town Council proposes to install stainless steel bollards at strategic locations on the northern pavement of West End, in order to address the concerns for pedestrian safety caused by vehicles mounting the pavement. Attached is a plan detailing the proposed location of the bollards. These have been strategically placed to avoid any interference with subterranean pipes, man holes and to comply with the Highways criteria specific to pedestrian access.

West End Bollard placement insert

The purpose of this letter is to determine if the proposal is supported by residents on West End. It would be greatly appreciated if you could reply no later than Friday 17th August with any comments. You are welcome to deliver a response to the Town Council office at the library or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.">This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. As explained above, this is the only course of action available to the Town Council so it would be appreciated if you could simply specify if you support or oppose the proposal.



For your information, details of all the most recent considerations of the traffic concerns on West End are available on the Town Council website as supporting documents to the Agendas dated 18th June and 16th July 2018.
