In the village of Ewelme, Oxfordshire at the top of the hill (Hampden Way). With many young families and elderly living on these residential roads at the top of Cat Lane, I am very concerned about the pedestrian safety when walking down to the village High Street (where there are amenities such as the village shop, the village hall and the Pre-school). I feel very wary of the traffic that comes hurtling down the road at quite some speed, especially on a couple of the blind bends. Looking at the road, it appears to me that there is enough verge to make a pathway going from roughly Martyn's Way down Cat Lane/Parsons Lane to the village shop/duck pond. This would enable villagers and tourists to travel round this part of the village more safely, as I fear this is a nasty accident waiting to happen. Particularly with the school and Pre-school along this route, it would allow children and parents to access these sites safely, especially those with buggies. Please could you let me know if this could be considered? Many thanks
