Here are the detailed documents in relation to the new SANGS. It will take some reading. Here is the link.
Just looked at the Design and Access statement.
Vehicular access will be from the A379. Cyclists and pedestrians willalso be able to enter from Orchard Lane (St Mary's cottages) and Shutterton Lane! Shutterton Lane!!!!!!! Cyclists and pedestrians in Shutterton Lane?????!!!!!!! Have the planners ever been down Shutterton Lanel I wonder? The only way Shutterton Lane could be safe is for it to become a no through road for vehicles - which it can't be because people live down it.
And now I've looked at the transport assessment.
On page 2 it gives details of the accidents that have happened on the A379 near to this proposed SANGs.
With regard to the A379 and the Shutterton Lane junction it shows that there have ony been two slight accidents of late - one on 12.1.15 and the other on 27.4.15.
So does that mean that the junction is deemed to be safe?
And does that mean that the highways people and the planners will say that Shutterton Lane is deemed to be safe for cyclists and pedestrians?
Dawlish SANGS (16/02485/MAJ) is an agenda item at this Thursday's DTC Planning Committee Meeting at The Manor House.
A snap-shot of the proposals showing the various access points, paths and planting (an extract from the D&AS above) can be viewed below:
Lynne, I think you'll find pedestrians already use Shutterton Lane.
The increased usage from the SANGS together with some signage may help to slow down the inconsiderate car drivers who think that pedestrians have no right to be there...
Well I certainly wouldn't walk along Shutterton Lane.
