Old Vicarage Lane – closure update

A number of residents have raised concerns about the ongoing closure of Old Vicarage Lane – which has been extended by the lockdown situation. The following points summarise an update the Parish Council received after raising these concerns with the developers:

  • The road remains closed because work on a gas main running underneath needs to be completed – the developers are waiting for an update from the utility provider on this and cannot make further progress until this is done
  • After this the closure will move to the other side of Nightingale Lane – the developers acknowledge this will cause more concerns but this will be the final stage of the closures

We will be updated when the developers know more but currently there is no more information available.
