Help your village 1 – Speed Calming Petition
There is a petition in the shop and Post Office asking for traffic calming measures in the east side of the village up to the garage. Signing the petition also commits you to pledge not to speed in the village. It would be great if you could sign it.
From 2010 to 2011 1000 more cars went over the railway crossing on a daily basis. The police have yet to provide us with a report on average speed in the east of the village but it has been reported to West Lothian Council as a potential danger area and was highlighted in the public consultation last February. Thanks to a local resident the speed of public transport is being monitored at the moment.
Having met with the local councillor, planning and the police already they are aware this is a matter residents of Kirknewton take very seriously. If you feel very strongly about the issue please sign the peitition.
The Give It A Go! meeting happens on Mon 13 Feb at 8pm in the Village Hall. Prior to the meeting (if you are going or not) please fill out the quick survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/QL66PJN and let us know what new clubs you would like to be part of and what outcomes of the Development Plan you may like to help with.
The meeting will look at what activities we can start for young people in the village, kick start some new clubs and activities for adults and utilise your skills and knowledge to achieve the Development Plan over the next three years!
