Any discussion on improving Ruddington soon leads to the topic of parking. The conversations also include use of the village by HGVs and cyclists.
How easy is getting around the village, especially with buggies, mobility aids and wheelchairs? Do we need more pedestrian crossings, a one-way system, permits or a pay and display? How do we make sure there are safe and clear routes to all parts of the village for getting to the centre, schools and green spaces?
Are there any short-term answers as well as solutions that will take a few years to implement? And how do we encourage people to spend more time in the village, meeting others and shopping locally?
If you have the time, energy and willingness to explore a range of options, the Parish Council is looking for volunteers to join a small Working Group to develop the detail of how we can make moving around the village work better for us all.
If you’re interested, please contact the Parish Council Office with a brief comment on what you care about and what you can contribute to our work.
