Proposed Pedestrian Crossing, Reading Road, Burghfield
During 2012, Burghfield Parish Council presented a request to West Berks Council to investigate the potential of installing a pedestrian crossing on the Reading Road, Burghfield, with the purpose of providing a safe crossing area that would serve residents and businesses alike.
West Berks Council instructed Siemens, a specialist traffic consultation company, to prepare a design. The design has been completed with the consultation process being imminent. A letter is currently being draft by West Berks Council with the extent of the consultation being determined in conjunction with the parish council to ensure as many people as possible are given the opportunity to present their opinion regarding the proposal.
The crossing is to be funded by developer contributions, referred to as Section 106 monies. Under S106 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, as amended, contributions can be sought from developers towards the costs of community and social infrastructure, providing improvement measures within the parish to the benefit of local parishioners. S106 funding is available for capital projects only.
