Travel plan seeks solutions to end village congestion woes.
TRAFFIC jams and choking fumes could be a thing of the past for people living in Braunton – if a new travel plan for the village does its job.
Devon County Council is inviting people to discuss traffic issues at a special event being held next month.
The feedback will be used to help the parish, district and county councils to update and develop an effective Community Travel Plan for the village.
Councillor Caroline Chugg said: “We would like to hear what people would realistically like to see improved about the parking restrictions, air quality and traffic congestion in the village.

“We need strong support from the community because their input on these issues is essential. The more residents that come along and share their ideas and suggestions, the better.”
The public consultation takes place in the Vivian Moon Centre on Wednesday, October 2 from 10am to 8pm.
