Traffic on Balls Farm Road

A number of residents have once again raised concerns about traffic using Balls Farm Road, Doctor’s Walk and Little John’s Cross illegally as a shortcut, including reports of aggressive drivers. This single track road has poor visibility and is used by many villagers including children walking and cycling to West Exe School. It is for the safety of these users that the traffic restrictions are in place.

We will be meeting with Councillors Roy Hill and Alan Connett shortly to discuss the matter. Residents with any concerns about these routes should contact them. Please copy your messages to Andy Swain as well so we have a record of your concerns.
