Farleigh Road, Cliddesden

A planning application has been submitted to Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council for permission to build 40 dwellings on land at Farleigh Road, Cliddesden.

Cycle Basingstoke objects to the planning application unless there are significant improvements to the local highways.

Cycle Basingstoke suggests that the following measures are necessary in the interest of safety before more houses can be built:

  • Pedestrian bridge (par 3.2.2) needs modifications to become a cycle bridge (higher parapets, droppedflush kerbs)
  • Reduced motor access to Woods lane, and other improvements
  • Suitably designed cycle lanes within the village (Farleigh road)
  • A cycle/footway to Cliddesden school
  • Speed restrictions on Farleigh road
  • Onstreet parking ban on Farleigh road
  • More cycle storage/parking/li>
