Proposed Pedestrian Puffin Crossing

We have been working closely with ESCC to further a proposal to install a pedestrian crossing over the A267, in place of the existing uncontrolled crossing near the bus-stops. This was considered back in 2013 and the Parish Council revived it in recent years and has consulted through Parish News and a recent public meeting in March. Below is a pamphlet that explains the situation to date.
