The end is in sight for the closure of Old Vicarage Lane. Bellway Homes has told us the current closure point will move to the village side of Nightingale Lane in the week beginning 10th August. Following this, the finish date for the work is the week beginning 11th September, when the road will finally be re-opened.
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.
Summer is nearly here and lockdown is easing up a little.
There’s still time to spot interesting subjects and enter the Community News Photography Competition – the closing date is now Friday the 12th June.
We have separate competitions for adults and under 18s, with prizes for the best entries, so there is no excuse not to get snapping. Full information is on the Community News page. We look forward to receiving your entries.
