Changes to School Transport Pick Up Point

Following a request from a parent Ettington Parish Council has been working with Warwickshire County Council to identify a safer pick up point than that at the junction of Rogers Lane and Banbury Road as the pavement there is very narrow and its proximity to the junction is less than ideal.

Following a suggestion at the PC meeting of 10 November it was proposed to WCC that a trial of using the bus stop at the other end of the village be trialled and this was immediately implemented.  If you have any feedback please contact the Clerk (epc.clerk@yahoo.com 07786938072)

Road Safety

A parishioner raised the issue of lorries parking on the corner of Churchill Close while popping to the shop highlighting the safety implications for drivers exiting the Close and pedestrians.  The Council is contacting Warwickshire County Council to alert them to the issue.  If you see this, or have any other concerns regarding road use contact the Shipston Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101.

The next stage will be for core members of the Youth Council to meet with Canvas Spaces representatives to ‘tweak’ the design and, once finalised, planning permission will be sought before work can commence.
Funding for the project has come from a variety of sources including the Parish Council, Section 106 funding (from the Spitfire Development), grants including National Lottery Awards for All, Waitrose Community Project and Tesco Bags of Help together with fundraising by the Youth Council.
