Rachel is to meet with the Police and Crime Commissioner to discuss speeding in Astwood Bank.
It follows a public meeting Rachel held in the village last year where residents raised concerns about speeding along Evesham Road.
Following the meeting, Rachel and local Councillors Mike Rouse, Craig Warhurst and Brandon Clayton vowed to ensure residents feel safe and secure in their village.
And whilst Councillors have been successful in introducing traffic management measures in the village, including the brand-new Zebra Crossing by Ridgeway Secondary School, it was agreed that more needs to be done to tackle this issue.
As part of this ongoing work, Rachel and Councillors will be meeting with the Police and Crime Commissioner, John Campion, next month to make the case for average speed cameras to be installed in Astwood Bank.
“I promised residents at the public meeting that there wouldn’t just be more talk about this issue, but there would be clear action in tackling speeding in Astwood Bank – and that’s exactly what’s happening.
“Whilst change won’t happen overnight, which I’ve always been upfront about, your Councillors and I are doing everything we can to make progress in addressing residents’ concerns.
“And yes progress can often feel slow, but it is always possible as demonstrated by my work in Hanbury in getting the speed limits successfully reduced. This is something villagers had been calling for long before I was first elected.
"I'm looking forward to meeting with our Police and Crime Commissioner, who has been a good friend to Redditch, to make the case for average speed cameras and other measures we can implement to tackle speeding in Astwood Bank.”
