Community leaders in Peasedown St John have challenged B&NES Council over an 18-month delay to install new signage on the outskirts of the village.
Cllr Karen Walker (Independent) wrote to Bath and North East Somerset Council at the end of 2014 to ask for signage either side of the village to be replaced, updated and refreshed.
Karen said: “Many local residents have contacted me over the last two years to ask if the highway welcome signs on the A367 could be replaced. Some of the information is out of date, and it’s important for a community the size of ours to have clear and inviting welcome signs.”
After continual lobbying, the council had assured councillors that the new signage would be erected in May 2015.
Karen added: “Over a year later – we are still waiting! We’ve had a lot of success in the past with new signage in places like Keels Hill, Braysdown Lane, and Bloomfield Way.
“Updated welcome signs would go a long way to shows the council’s commitment to our community.”
Cllr Sarah Bevan (Independent) said: “It’s essential that key highway signs to and from Peasedown St John are accurate and kept up to date so that residents, their visitors and commercial traffic are not misled into thinking that public amenities are available where they’ve changed over the years.
“We’re asking again in response to residents’ justifiable demands for simple amendments to be made to all inaccurate information boards on the approaches to our village.
“At the very least these will prevent unnecessary traffic driving through Peasedown, increasing the volumes which are already at capacity at peak times during the school term.”
