A12 and Martlesham Retail Park traffic noise, congestion and pollution
Please support the Parish Council and Martlesham Traffic Watch in our ongoing efforts to improve the traffic situation in the retail park and surrounding area. We successfully lobby for pedestrian crossings, invest in speed and traffic noise and pollution measuring equipment and push at planning enquiries and elsewhere for planners to take action against traffic issues.
What can you do? Three practical suggestions:
1. Please support us and Martlesham Traffic Watch in their ongoing efforts to improve the traffic situation in the retail park and surrounding areas and on the A12.
We are investing in speed and traffic noise and pollution measuring equipment to prove the need for change and monitor future developments. We also push for the planners to mitigate the present situation, at planning enquiries and elsewhere. Volunteer to help Traffic Watch, or join the Parish Council.
2. Register every incident of anti-social behaviour or suspected crime with East Suffolk Council (ESC), email firstname.lastname@example.org , and the police, ring 101 or report online https://www.suffolk.police.uk/contact-us/report-something . This will also help when setting local police priorities.
3. Lobby ESC and Suffolk County Council (SCC) councillors. The problems have arisen by planning permissions being granted by SCDC, now ESC. SCC Highways are consulted on traffic implications of plans, but often don’t comment, or don’t raise objections.
