SID Data – December 2019

Location:  opposite Robert Mays School, The Street, North Warnborough

The data showed average speeds of 23/24 mph with almost 60% of traffic travelling over 20mph. Members agreed there was a perception of speed but the SID data showed that speeds were not excessive. Members questioned whether a 20mph zone was enforceable?

Councillors concluded that, whilst the speeds were disappointing, there was little action for OPC to take.

SID Data – 26 November 2019
The SID recently monitored traffic in King Street outside the entrance to Mayhill and Buryfields schools for 4 weeks.  The road is used by approximately 750 vehicles per day and the average recorded speed was just under 19 mph.  85% of vehicles were travelling at less than 26 mph (this is the percentage which might trigger action if it exceeded the speed limit).  OPC will continue to press for an extension of the 30 mph limit beyond the Cricket Club and will monitor the traffic in King Street as frequently as possible to gather more data.

SID Data – 14 October 2019
The Speed Indicator Device has been recording vehicle data at the junction of the High Street and London Road for the past 3 weeks in response to concerns from residents about the speed of vehicles along the High Street. The average speed of vehicles travelling east towards the Farnham Road was approximately 24 mph, being slightly slower during daylight hours, with a maximum average of 33 mph at 3 am.  We hope to repeat the data gathering at a more central location on the High Street once the hanging baskets are taken down from the lampposts.

Improvements to a section of footpath 21
Whilst the maintenance of footpaths is not in OPC’s remit, we have responded to resident’s concerns about a section of footpath 21. OPC approved the use £9,892 of s106 Highways Contributions from the Hatchwood/Montfort Place development for improvements to a section of this footpath between London Road and Farnham Road at an EGM on 18 December 2018.

HCC have advised that the works are now completed to the section of FP21.

Bus Shelters at and opposite The Crown
At the meeting on 19 November 2018 the T&T committee were advised that Hampshire Highways have advised that there is not enough space to install a bus shelter at the location opposite The Crown as the extent of the highway extends up to the rear of the footway outside the property Deansgate.

Some members of the committee felt that there is room to install a bus shelter here, particularly as there used to be one at this location and will be making contact with Highways to discuss this further.


15 May 2019
OPC has received a letter from HCC today regarding our application to modify the Definitive Map. The application has been added to the register and large waiting list and may take some time before a case officer is able to investigate.

12 April 2019
Thank you to all those residents who completed the User Evidence Forms for the DMMO application for the path at Mildmay Court. All necessary forms have now been sent to Hampshire County Council for them to consider and progress.

As you may be aware, access to the footway from Reyntiens View to the cemetery has been closed by the management company at Mildmay Court. Several residents have expressed their concerns to the parish council at the loss of this access.

OPC’s Traffic and Transport Committee has agreed to apply to Hampshire County Council for a Definitive Map Modification Order (DMMO) to try and re-establish the public’s access.

The committee are seeking advice from the Open Spaces Society regarding the closure of the path through Mildmay Court and have agreed to request that Hampshire CC make a Definitive Map Modification Order to register the path as a right of way.

Bike Racks
OPC have purchased bike racks which are due to be installed on the High Street outside of the Bel and The Dragon by Hampshire Highways.
