East Devon Highways and Traffic Orders Committee meet on November 22, where members will determine which roads will have new constraints implemented.

Roads in Newton Poppleford, Colyton, Musbury, Beer and Lympstone are subject to the proposals, which according to HATOC agenda papers, will make them safer for both pedestrians and motorists.

The proposal allows for waiting between 9am and 6pm for 30 minutes, with a condition of no return within one hour.

Agenda papers for the HATOC meeting said the restrictions are proposed to avoid 'danger to persons or other traffic using the road' or to prevent the 'likelihood of any such danger arising'.
