HVS Traffic Calming Strategy
One of the main concerns that HVS members raise is speeding in Hurst. A lot of work has been done by the Parish Council to reduce speeding, but the problem persists.
HVS have therefore devised a Traffic Calming Strategy which was presented to HPC at the December Council Meeting. You can view the presentation by clicking here.
A dedicated section of the HVS website is being prepared with more information, once this goes live it will be included in our newsletter.
In the meantime, if you have any comments or feedback please email us.
