Local MP Douglas Carswell is leading efforts to reduce traffic on Thorpe-le-Soken High Street.
Acting on concerns raised by Thorpe residents, Douglas contacted the Essex Highways team directly to ask for a rethink of the High Street's layout. Together with representatives of both Essex County Council and Tendring District Council, Douglas visited the High Street to explore possible solutions.
Douglas has also written to local residents, enclosing a survey asking for their views on the issue.
"It's important no changes are made that make things worse", Douglas commented. "Input from local residents is vital to ensure we find the best possible solution."
