Traffic Sensitive Street Review
As you may be aware, Devon are undertaking a full review of the traffic senstivie street network. Full details can be found on our webpages;
A statutory consultation period will be published for a 1 month period from the 1 March 2018. We are providing you with this information in advance of the consultation to enable you to feedback any thoughts you may have at an early stage. Feedback should be sent to the following email
Please be aware, Devon are governed by what can be designated traffic sensitive through regulations and statute – so we cannot designate routes outside of specific legal criteria.
Local Consideration Network
For those areas where legal designations as traffic sensitive cannot be made we are aware, as the highway authority, that early conversations and consultation on works would help reduce network disruption. We are therefore developing a secondary network of routes entitled ‘local consideration’.
This is a network that will trigger a need for anyone planning works to discuss with local stakeholders at an early stage (i.e. at the point of noticing). The development of this network is ongoing, however, this network can be considered for areas where traffic sensitive designations do not apply.

Mike Miller Parish Clerk 16 September 2016
We have now completed issuing the questionnaires round the village and received a largely positive response from those of
you that we talked to as we did that. Our thanks to those of you that completed the questionnaires and returned them - we received
238 in total, of which 31 were from children and young people. By the time you read this, we will have made the draw for the two
£25 vouchers for food at The King’s Arms.
We are now analysing the responses. We will be mounting presentations of our analyses during the early autumn, as the firstof a number of consultation exercises during the course of the programme. Several issues are obviously concerning many of you,and we will highlight these as the planning moves forward.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or would like to get involved.

Otterton Public Rights of Way
In Otterton Parish we have approximately 20
miles of PROW’s. These being made up of footpaths, bridleways and
green lanes (unclassified roads). The maintenance of these routes is
getting more and more difficult with current financial constraints, and
a blurring of responsibilities between Devon County Council (DCC) East
Devon District Council (EDDC) and landowners/occupiers. EDDC look after
our coastal routes and with a Ranger dedicated to this work we don’t
get many problems along the South West Coast Path.
