West Challow Village Gates

The Parish Council has been considering both the aspects of speed and village ‘identity’.  We are keen to use different ways to encourage drivers to keep to the 20mph limit, and equally, because a lot of the village is ‘tucked away’ it is not entirely obvious to drivers that they are entering the village.

We felt that some modest village gates might help.  We would take the same approach that has been used entering Letcombe Regis.  A durable plastic ‘faux wood’ white ‘gate’ with a simple sign attached to it on the horizontal.  They would be sited near Coppice Leaze Farm and the canal bridge.

We would welcome any thoughts back on our proposal by the end of August.
