Controversial traffic proposal for Beckermet to be dropped

A traffic management scheme for the village of Beckermet in West Cumbria which had previously been put forward by the County Council now looks unlikely to go ahead after further investigation of the issues including a new round of consultations.

A report presented to the county's Highways Working Group for Copeland today by the officers found that there was much more opposition than support for the proposals among those who responded to the consultation, and officers recommended that it should not go ahead.

That recommendation will now be considered at the next meeting of the County Council's local committee for Copeland on 15th May with the support of the Highways Working Group.
