Location and cost of Vehicle Activated Signs
The following locations have been suggested:

2) Bottom of ladder hill going south (Uphill) either one of two posts numbers 9 & 10 which are opposite the entrance to Howe Close . Both these would require vegetation to be cut back. Number 9 is probably best because there is another sign just in front of No 10.
