The Parish Plan 2010 is a document developed by the community to explain our vision for the future of Mabe and can be viewed through clicking here.  

 

Traffic & the village 

July 2018 - good news - the plans for the changes to the Longdowns Junction are being put forward for addition to the 2019/20 Capital Works Plan at Cornwall Council.  As a backup we we have also put forward to the Community Network Highways Bid (2018/19) as Mabe's preferred project.

 

We understand that a large number of the villagers within Mabe have issues with traffic  - be it speeding, number of cars, parking, crossings, size of vehicles or general traffic mayhem, which we as a parish have been trying to address since the Mabe Village Transport Improvements: Feasibility Study was undertaken in 2013.

Despite long and details requests to Cornwall Highways for improvements - especially relating to speed and usage on the road between the Longdowns Junction & the Asda Roundabout we fail to gain financial support at every turn.  Please be assured that the Parish Council take this matter very seriously and will continue to lobby to get actions - especially a 20mph speed limit through the heart of the village - installed.

To help everyone with this we will be posting anything we receive relating to traffic below in the hope that you as individuals may see fit to contact Cornwall Council to put pressure on them to provide a safe road environment for our village.

Accident on Antron Hill -Aug 2017 

communication with CORMAC - aug 2017 

 

8.2.18  Thanks to Cllr Peter Williams we managed to get an additional speed survey done on Antron Hill (by Coronation Cottages) in December 2017.  This an be seen by clicking the following links - there is an eastbound and westbound report.

14.3.18   A follow-up email on this had been received through Cllr Williams, that does not seem to show interest on the part of Cornwall Council to address any speed issue - and does not even address the sheer number of vehicles that seem to be using this stretch of road - on weekdays especially!
