Just in from a very positive meeting with the County Council.
Following pressure from the Parish council and the Cholsey Green travel Group the County Council have come up with a partial solution to the parking problems at the school. They propose traffic lights on the Church Road bridge (these will have the added advantage of slowing traffic entering and leaving the village) and a footway connecting the church car park to the school. These plans have still to be approved, but they appear to be fully funded. Thanks are due to County Councillor, Patrick Green, for a £10,000 contribution from his locality transport fund.
Our proposal to provide a cycle path connecting the top end of Ilges Lane to the Reading Road has also been worked up and is feasible. Unfortunately there is no guaranteed funding for this project, but officers will attempt to obtain the money from a variety of sources.
