Council response

The Speed Management Group, which is a partnership between Lancashire County Council and the Police, has assessed two sites around Inskip on the B5269, one on Inskip Lane near to St Peter's school and one on Preston Road at Carr's Green, and both have been included in the Lancashire Speed Management Programme for 2019/20. We are targeting locations where casualties and speeds are higher, and have looked to introduce appropriate measures, which may include police enforcement, installation of temporary signs, community road watch, engagement and education. The Speed Management Programme is published as a downloadable document on the Lancashire Insight page of our website and updated monthly with newly assessed sites, identifying the proposed responses to any concerns raised and timescales for implementation.

As a result of this assessment we arranged to put up some highly visible temporary signing at both locations until the end of 2019 and then again between April and June 2020.

Further to those two locations we assessed a site on the B5269 near to its junction with Manor Road and although, as a result of the assessment, active measures have not been prioritised for this section of the B5269, there is a community toolkit which gives examples of how local residents can raise awareness of road safety issues in their local area which is available in the "Documents Downloads" section on the Lancashire Insight webpage.

We have sent details of the options that parish councils have for purchasing and managing their own SpID sign to the parish council clerk, Mr Mike Ainsworth, in October last year who replied to say it would be discussed further with councillors. We have not had any further communications since.

We hope that this information is helpful.
