RESIDENTS in Belton are being urged to contact the parish council with concerns over accident black spots in the village.

Following an incident on St John's Road the parish council has decided to conduct an investigation into hotspots.

Several residents have already come forward concerned about Waveney Drive and Orwell Crescent and parish councillor Margaret Greenacre

said parking was also becoming a problem in the village.

“A resident complained to the parish council about parked cars on St John's Road, which they said caused the accident,” she said.

The parish council decided to open up the issue of road safety for debate and it wants to hear from residents who have experienced problems or are concerned about particular roads in the village.

Mrs Greenacre said several people had already come forward and one resident had raised concerns about the speed of traffic on Stepshort.

“The information will be passed on to Norfolk County Council's highways department and the police for them to look at,” added Mrs Greenacre.

Any resident with a safety concern should contact Mrs Greenacre on 01493 780126
