Land at Finches Farm, Five Oak Green

Traffic Calming Along Five Oak Green Road

The land at Finches Farm is situated between Capel Primary School and the rest of the village, and therefore its development provides a unique opportunity to deliver safety improvements for those travelling between the school and the village on foot or by bicycle.

Currently, pedestrians utilise a long, narrow pavement adjacent to Five Oak Green Road to access the school from the village, which presents a dangerous route given the proximity to cars and other vehicles using the road.  As part of our proposals, we are proposing a dedicated off-road pedestrian and cycle route through the site from east to west, three metres in width, thereby creating a direct link between the school and the village.

The following improvements are also proposed along Five Oak Green Road to discourage speeding and make this section of road safer and more pleasant for pedestrians:


1. Installation of a ‘gateway’ feature to the west of the school to encourage drivers to slow down


2. Two new informal pedestrian crossings with kerbed build-outs and tactile paving


3. Two new sets of ‘SCHOOL KEEP CLEAR’ markings, painted either side of the proposed kerbed build-out in front of the school


The following plan shows the location of proposed highway improvements between the primary school and the village:
