A call for traffic calming measures close to one of Newtown’s primary schools and a new care home are expected to be made by the town council next week.

Penygloddfa School has already made representations to Powys County Council for traffic calming along Commercial Street and Cambrian Way amid safety concerns for pupils.

At next Monday’s town council meeting, Cllr L Woodward will be putting forward a motion for the council to support the school’s calls, adding that with the opening of the new residential care complex along Cambrian Way, there is further reason to bring in traffic calming.

The motion states: “This council supports the concerns of the Penygloddfa CP School regarding child safety and requesting from PCC some form of traffic calming measure(s) along commercial street and Cambrian way.

“In addition the new care complex on Cambrian Way that will house vulnerable, disabled and older persons adds to the strength of the case for traffic calming measure(s) along Commercial Street and Cambrian way. This resolution to be sent to Powys Council to ensure that Town Council views are known.”

Town councillors will vote on the matter on Monday evening when the council holds its monthly meeting.
