Following concerns expressed by residents about the speed of traffic though the village, a vote was taken at the AGM to request that Hartley’s Village be included in Liverpool City Councils 20mph Zoning Scheme.
Cllr McEvoy confirmed to the committee that this has now been passed and the village has been included. Signage will be erected in due course. This will make the village a safer place to live and work and will help slow the damage to the roads.
Visual Environment Improvements
A site visit took place between members of your committee, local councillors and representatives from City and North Neighbourhood Management Services to look at various ideas for improving the visual environment of the village. A number of options were put forward which are currently being considered by the committee for action. The first of these is a planer scheme for various locations around the village. The committee is currently undertaking a consultation exercise with residents with the hope that the first of the planters will be in place by early spring.
UPDATE JULY 2012
