Highways Matters

At the June Parish Council meeting we were pleased to welcome County Councillor Mike Pullin, who is helping to arrange a meeting to expedite the long awaited moving of the 30mph signs, together with Armco barriers on the approach to the village from the Ammerdown direction and means of addressing dangerous parking opposite the pub.

Cllr Pullin drew out attention to the Somerset County Council website where potholes and road defects can be reported easily and efficiently by marking the location of the problem on a map.  In his experience these reports had been dealt with very quickly. –

The Parish Council has used this website to report the overgrown weeds on the footpath at Kilmersdon Hill.



Work is on-going towards the completion of the renovation of the noticeboard at the entrance to Coles Garden.


Kilmersdon Play Park

The Parish Council continues to explore means of replacing the rotting play equipment with longer lasting alternatives.  Crowd funding for some ongoing maintenance in the amount of £10,000 is being set up, with information to be sent out via the School’s PTA.


In the meantime, the plastic slide will be replaced and a quote to maintain the spiral garden and replace the rotten noticeboard at its entrance are being sought.


The next Parish Council meeting is on 15th July at 7.30pm at Coles Garden Meeting Room.  Residents are welcome to attend to raise any concerns.
