Ettington and Fulready Neighbourhood Plan

The Parish Council is delighted to report that Stratford District Council approved the Plan yesterday.  The press release can be found https://www.stratford.gov.uk/news/press.cfm/current/1/item/136774

The Parish Council would like to thank the many people who were involved in the development of the plan and all those who supported them by commenting and, most importantly voting for the plan.

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

Temporary Road Closure

Warwickshire County Council proposes to make a Temporary Traffic Order closing D64910 Rogers Lane, Ettington from its junction with Halford Road to its junction with Rogers Lane (side road), to vehicular traffic.The closure is required to facilitate structural patching of the carriageway.

The Order will commence on 10 January 2019 and will last for a period of 18 months, or until the works are completed, whichever is the earlier. However, it is anticipated that the works will be completed by 10 January 2019.

Pedestrian access to and egress from properties and land situated adjacent to the length of road to be closed will be maintained at all times. Vehicular access will be maintained where possible.

An alternative route will be signed and is available via: Halford Road, A422 Banbury Road, Rogers Lane and vice versa.

The Council regrets any inconvenience that may be caused. The team dealing with this Temporary Traffic Order at Warwickshire County Council is County Highways South (Tel: 01926 412515).

Any enquiries relating to the works being undertaken may be directed to the contractors dealing with this matter, Balfour Beatty (Tel: 03452 415 302) or C R Macdonald Ltd (Tel: 01527 518 989).

Police and Crime Commissioner Consulting on Precept

Cllr Seccombe writes “this week I have begun consulting the public on the Police Precept, as I begin the process of setting the 2019/20 budget for Warwickshire Police. In my proposals I set out the case for increasing the number of police officers, community support officers and police staff
investigators in the county by up to 100, in order to meet rising levels of demand and to provide a better service to local communities” see full letter Police and Crime Commissioner Consultation and click here https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WarksPrecept19-20 to access the survey.

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)
