Tragic Accident on Coopers Green Road

Buxted Parish Council is very saddened to hear the news that two local chefs from the Pig and Butcher lost their lives at the weekend in a road traffic accident on Coopers Green Road.

 

Local resident, Graham Midmer, supported by the Parish Council and ESCC Councillor Galley have fought for a number of years to get this road reduced from a 60 to 40mph zone, which has now been approved. It is hoped that once final consultations have taken place, the necessary changes to the signs and road markings will be imminent.

 

We may never know if this was a factor at the weekend, but it is hoped that these changes may help to avoid any further tragic accidents
