This page is intended to contain a summary of requests by Harrogate District schools for active travel and road safety improvements, together with the response from our local authorities.

Western Primary

The Head Teacher is concerned about pollution from the high volume of traffic on Cold Bath Road, speeding, and narrow pavements.


He has had partial success in his requests to the local authority, in that Councillor John Mann paid for a Vehicle Activated Sign from his Locality Budget. Other requests include more railings.

HDCA believes a more radical solution could be appropriate to Cold Bath Road – for example, making it one-way, so as to reduce the space for vehicles and increase the space available to people.
