The Boundary commission has recommended that Nailsworth is moved from Stroud Constituency to Cotswold
The plans are part of reforms which would see the House of Commons reduce from 650 MPs to 600. A public consultation is now under way and final proposals will not be made until 2018. Members of the public can have their say by giving the Commission their views on these proposals during the 12-week consultation period, either on the Boundary Commission website or in person at public hearings being held in every region.
Our local one is at the Council Chambers Bristol, 17-18 November.
There will be a Public Meeting on 23rd November at 7:00pm in The Mortimer Room to allow Nailsworth Residents to put forward their views on these proposed changes. Please come along.
The A46 Group has continued work on this project and Gloucestershire Highways are preparing the necessary TRO (Traffic Regulation Order) for this and other items for Nailsworth's roads.
When the TRO is ready information about it will be posted here. This interesting project will help to make Nailsworth a better town for all, not just for drivers. The project was started after members of the public expressed concerns about the effect of traffic on our community. The consultation carried out in Spring was overwhelmingly in favour of the scheme.
Recently the Town Council applied for a grant from the Police and Crime Commissioner's Fund to buy two more Smiley SID signs and it is intended that these go on Spring Hill and the A46 from Stroud. There is already one proposed for the A46 from Bath. Smiley SIDs indicate a car's speed and a smile or frown - giving instant feedback to a driver as to how considerate their driving is.
