Let's slow things down!Post in Infrastructure by Tina Hartley
What's happened so far?
We want traffic calming measures into and out of Garve and other villages in the district.
The Company approached residents throughout the district who we felt might be interested in joining what is hoped to be a short term community action group. Nine volunteers, supported by Tina Hartley (CEDO), held their first meeting on 9 October 2021 (although some work had taken place prior to this). Following some fantastic input from all members of the group it was decided that the top priority would be:
|13/9/21||Work began on emails to potential 7 group members promoting the volunteering opportunity.|
|24/9/21||Email to group with date of first meeting - 29 September 21, and requesting ideas for traffic caming measures.|
