Local traffic concerns

“Tatenhill and Rangemore Parish Council is aware of the recent traffic issues through Tatenhill village, indeed throughout the parish. The parish council was delighted when, after over 10 years of lobbying, a 7.5 tonne weight restriction through the two villages was installed 12 months ago.

Current projects for include the installation of both a mobile SID and the gateways around Tatenhill village. The gateways were planned over 2 years ago as part of a traffic scheme for the village arising from the Branston Locks development. Unfortunately, the funding does not become available until 350 of the properties are lived in. Consultations will be held in the village as soon as the pandemic permits in order to have proposals in place to act quickly when the funding is released.

With regard to the recent spate of suspicious characters in the area the Parish Council would urge residents to report these to Staffordshire Police.โ€
