PEOPLE living in Fordham are being given the opportunity to tell county council chiefs of their concerns about traffic at a public meeting on Monday.

The county council has been in talks with Fordham Parish Council recently and chief executive, Ian Stewart, is keen to let villagers have their say.

He said: "It is clear there are concerns by some people about the speed of traffic and road safety. Fordham is not alone in experiencing problems with speeding vehicles, although the bypass has removed thousands of vehicles every day from travelling through. I want to hear the views of people and am pleased we have been able to work with the Parish Council to hold this public meeting. I hope people will tell us what they think."

Parish council chairman, Hugh Palmer, said: "There have been concerns about the traffic calming scheme and speeding in parts of the village and I am grateful for the county council chief executive for agreeing to meet the people of Fordham and answer their questions. The parish council wants to work together with the county council to find a solution to some of these problems."

INFO: The meeting is at Victoria Hall in Carter Street, starting at 7.30pm.
