Road Safety

Following parishioner raising the issues of lorries parking on the corner of Banbury Road and Churchill Close the Parish Council contacted the Shipston Safer Neighbourhood Team to ask for their advice on how this can be addressed.  PC Craig Purcell suggested:

The larger vehicles may be from nearby construction sites and we can speak to site bosses to try and prevent issues. They’re usually pretty good and might even put a sign up.’
We can also talk directly to companies to get the message across so please do encourage emailing us with photographs of large vehicle with company logos. Emails need to go to shipston.snt@warwickshire.pnn.police.uk

Finally, where neither of the above is appropriate, try ‘Operation Snap’  a website where photos/videos and statements can be uploaded and are then accessed by the relevant Police Force – click on the following link https://www.nextbase.com/en-gb/national-dash-cam-safety-portal

Ettington Youth Council is excited to announce that, following a tender process Canvas Spaces Limited have been awarded the contract to develop the skatepark.    The company has 15 years of experience of building skateparks (examples of their projects can be found at www.canvasspaces.co.uk).  Examples of their award winning designs put forward can be seen below

307 – P401 Proposed Site Plan

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.
The Parish Council would like to thank and congratulate the Youth Council for their patience and commitment to the project which will benefit themselves and others for years to come.
