TRAFFIC problems faced by residents on a Buxton street are to be taken to Derbyshire County Council.

People living on Brown Edge Road held a meeting with Derbyshire County Councillor Robin Baldry and High Peak Borough Councillor Linda Baldry last week to raise their concerns about increasing levels of traffic in the area as well as associated safety fears – with their worries intensifying because of housing developments currently underway or being planned on the street.

Cllr Robin Baldry said: “I’ll now summarise their concerns and present them to the cabinet member Cllr Simon Spencer.”

Cllr Linda Baldry and Cllr Tony Kemp have also been working with the residents on their objections to a planning application for 21 houses on land on Brown Edge Road, which is due to go before borough council planners on Monday.
