With the help and guidance of Councillor Judi Partridge we were able to secure speed control measures for Hollybush Drive. The community came together to find a solution that worked for everyone with the assistance of Ms. Partridge throughout the process; we now have narrower lanes, extended curbs and should shortly have a second stop sign. The Hollybush community is very grateful.
