Stoke Bruerne Village Design Statement

We are delighted to be able to confirm that the village Design Statement has now been adopted by SNC - many congratulations to the committee who worked very hard on behalf of us all.

Village design statements are a form of planning guidance used to inform the design of new development ensuring that it is in keeping with existing local character and distinctiveness. The Village Design Statement for Stoke Bruerne can be found here

Speeding in Village

Speeding continues to be a big issue in our Village and there are no signs of an improving situation. The Parish Council has just conducted a speed survey within the 20 mph zone either side of the bridge. The results are being interpreted and will be available soon.

Traffic Survey

As you are probably aware the Parish Council commissioned an independent traffic survey in September at two locations in the Village. The first location after the canal bridge and before Mill Lane confirmed a significant number of speeding drivers with an average speed of 25.7 mph in the 20-mph zone. The 85th percentile speed average was 30.4 mph (this is the speed at which 85% of drivers travel and is considered to be the "safe speed" by the Safer Roads Team as 85% of drivers tend to drive at a safe level) this indicates that the speed limit in this area could potentially be 30-mph. The second location was outside of the School. These figures gave an average speed of 21.0 mph and an 85th percentile speed of 24.8 mph. This location recorded 20,749 vehicle movements over a 7 day period which means over a million vehicle movements in a year. With further development proposed in Towcester and the two rail freight proposals this figure will only increase. More »

The Parish Council is arranging a site meeting with NCC Highways to discuss what can be done in light of the survey results and the concerns being expressed by residents about the increasing dangers on the roads and footpaths in the area. We will keep you informed of developments. » Less
