Flyers have been received in the village stating that Old Vicarage Lane is due to be closed to traffic from today for up to 7 weeks. This is to allow construction of the new entrance into the Bellway site and associated works.
This may have some impact on HGV traffic but it is hoped that the number of site vehicles coming through the village will be minimised.
Please note that some lorries (for example those carrying roof trusses) have existing permission to come through the village via Pound Corner as they cannot pass under the rail bridge off the A420 junction.
The Clerk will be on leave over the Christmas period from Monday 23rd December and will resume his normal hours on Friday 3rd January.
During this period email will be checked intermittently for any urgent matters. Any normal business will be dealt with on the Clerk’s return.
Concerns have been raised about the number of off-lead dogs on the recreation ground in the village.
The Council has discussed this and would like to remind members of the public that dogs should not be exercised off-lead there (as indicated by signs) and should also be deemed to be under control at all times.
