IMPORTANT – ROAD CLOSURE

The Parish Council have been notified that New Road will be shut, for a period of two weeks, beginning on the 6th October.

This is to allow the construction of an additional manhole to access the extending sewerage system.

The proposed diversion route is via Lidgett Lane.

The Parish Council have challenged this diversion and expressed the serious safety concerns they have, noting that they do not believe Lidgett Lane is ‘fit for purpose’.

Unfortunately, BMBC have chosen to proceed with this as the advertised diversion route.

We ask that residents please take extra care during the road closure, and reduce their speed on Lidgett Lane, in an attempt to lower the risks when passing vehicles and pedestrians.

An alternative route would be advised during this period.

Local volunteers have shown how hard work, and community spirit, can transform our Parish.

Previously the verge was overgrown with a variety of shrubs and weeds, and as one of the main entrance routes into the Parish, didn’t appear particularly welcoming.

Residents local to this area decided to take it upon themselves to work together and clear the verge, replacing weeds with plants, and vastly improving the initial impression of visitors to the village.

Any residents interested in carrying out similar work, are encouraged to contact Tankersley and Pilley Environmental Group (TPEG), who work throughout the Parish on similar projects, year round.
