Cavendish Traffic

Holistic View of Cavendish Traffic

The attached slides Cavendish traffic v1.3 were presented by Cllr Mark Freeman at the March 2021 Parish Council Meeting. These cover a multitude of subjects from parking, to speeding, use of open places, connection with planning, electric cars, etc.. The idea was, and is, to start looking at the individual issues as part of the issues facing the whole village. See the March 2021 minutes for more information.

Lorry Network Route Map - Community Review 2021

The A1092 is classified on the Suffolk Strategic Lorry Route as a ‘zone distributor route’. Parishes along this route have been asked to take part in a Community Review as part of a reassessment of lorry routes within the county.

Cavendish Parish Council will be sending in a response by the closing date of 17th December, and we are asking residents for their input. If you have any comments regarding any aspect of lorry issues within the village, such as damage to property, road safety for pedestrians, road surface damage etc, please let the clerk know and we will include these as part of our response.

Links to the lorry route plan review and frequently asked questions can be found on the County Council lorry route plan review.
