Road Closures

Works are due to take place on the A379 to the western side of the Devon Hotel roundabout, starting next week (week commencing 19th October 2020), so there will be traffic management on that side of the roundabout in addition to the traffic management on the eastern side of the junction.

Initially, this will be 2 - 3 days for vegetation clearance associated with the new school junction.  The developer is then expected to start works to remove the retaining wall the following week which will also involve traffic management to allow for safe working.

Once that is complete work is expected to start on delivering the access itself.  The traffic management will be similar to that already in place, with contraflows allowing a lane to remain open in each direction.

Internet at Shillingford Abbot

Cllr Parrott and Cllr Carr (with help from his grandson) have been hard at work trying to improve internet speeds in Shillingford Abbot.  They have signed up to the Community Fibre Partnership and the next stage will be looking for grants and funding.  

Update - work is still ongoing to bring better internet speeds to the community.

The Parish Council discussed a planning application for an extension at Sunnyholme, Shillingford St George at the recent meeting.  There were no objections to the proposal.  

Village Green

The Parish Council are aware that residents have been asking if the grass on the village green could be cut.  As the Parish Council are not responsible for the village green and the trustees refuse to allow us to cut the grass, we are not in a position to cut it.
