EVERY now and then it is great to see the council act on public concerns. 

Over the last few weeks, several readers have written to the County Gazette about the worsening of road safety on the A358, since the council decision to remove the 30mph signs at the entrance to Staplegrove in October. 

I am pleased to say that the council has now at least partially mitigated the problem by fixing red temporary speed warning signs on the posts at the approach to Staplegrove.

So many thanks to the County Gazette for raising the profile and well done to the council for taking action. 

Hopefully it is not pushing the festive goodwill too far to ask that permanent safety signs be put in place in the New Year.
