A traffic scheme is set to come into force in two North Somerset villages.

Wraxall and Failand Parish Council will approach the authority’s senior engineer for highways and transport, David Bailey, for a new scheme which will reduce speed limits on Beggar Bush Lane and Belmont Hill, both in Failand, and reintroduce flashing school warning signs near Wraxall Primary School, in Bristol Road.

It is not known yet what costs will be involved.

A parish council spokesman confirmed a decision will be made in due course about how to consult with villagers before final decisions are made.

The Times reported in June the parish council wants a roundabout and quiet lanes introduced in the villages before the Joint Spatial Plan is enforced in 2025.

A request from the Failand Traffic Working Group for a grant from the Bristol Airport Diamond Fund was turned down in December.
