Reduced Speed Limit Finally Approved

The Parish Council has for many years petitioned Dorset Council to reduce the speed limit on the B3163 past Broadwindsor Cricket Club and to the base of Clan Hill, which is currently 60 mph, reducing abruptly to 20 mph and introduce a transitional limit of 40 mph to ensure greater safety for all road users.

Last night, the Parish Council were delighted to report that this request has now been approved by Dorset Council.

The poor state of our roads and signage was raised as a matter to be discussed at their next meeting and they will be reviewing signs across the Grouped Parish over the coming months.

If you do see a sign which is not in good working order or have concerns about a particular part of the highway, please do get in contact:

The next meeting of the Parish Council will be on Monday, 9th September, 7.30pm at Drimpton Village Hall.  All are welcome.
