South Swindon MP Robert Buckland and Councillor Nick Burns Howell have issued a joint statement to address the concerns raised by local residents over the Ambrose crossing.
“We have spoken to the developer and to the planning team about this application. While it is currently pending a final decision the Council’s Highways Team has raised an objection to the proposal to remove a crossing requirement. Therefore, it is clear that the Borough also has concerns over this application.
“We are working to ensure that we not only get a crossing but also adequate traffic calming measures on Croft Road. We want to reassure everyone who has signed the petition that we are aware of these concerns.”
