Lighting: the lamps and certain of the existing lamp columns will be replaced in March/April, and the contractors have circulated advisory letters to many households in the centre of the village. For the avoidance of doubt there are no plans to install new columns - just to replace existing columns and lamps at the end of their useful lives

Temporary Road Closure

The Parish Council has been advised that CCN communications (on behalf of BT Openreach) will be carrying out essential repairs on an underground duct. As a consequence Whaddon Lane from its junction with Whites Hill to near Great Coney Park will be closed from  23rd April for approximately 2 weeks. Access to properties will be maintained, as will access to The Ship Inn (by following the diversionary route).


Advance Notice: BoomTown Festival Traffic
The BoomTown Festival takes place on Matterley Estate  between 7th August -11th August.  Up to 38,000 people are expected to attend the event. In previous years the Festival had little direct impact on the Parish, other than loud music being heard on occasion. 

However, the proposed traffic route this year for most coaches and camper-vans is through Twyford, Morestead Road and Longwood, and then on to Matterley Estate. The provisional estimate is that up to 100 coaches will be involved and also many of the anticipated 750 camper-vans.  Most of the traffic is expected to occur on Thursday (7th) and Monday (11th).

Naturally there will be traffic control in place. Nonetheless traffic on this scale is likely to cause significant disruption to parishioners wishing to travel to Twyford or use the Morestead or Longwood roads.  In addition there is always the risk -as happened recently  with the Colden Common road works- of cars taking short-cuts through Owslebury, if traffic builds-up on the main route. 

The Parish Council is currently considering its response to the proposed routes, and further information will be made available in due course.  

If you have strong views on the matter, please contact a Parish Councillor or email me at owsleburyparishcouncil@gmail.com or leave a message on 777313.

Traffic speed is a major concern throughout the Parish and the Parish Council is seeking to work with the Police and Traffic Management Authorities to help resolve the problem.  
The Council is seeking to build a database providing examples of accidents, excessive speed and other related issues.  
The database will be used in the Council's discussions with the Traffic Management Authorities.
If you have any examples please contact the Clerk, Michael Cleary, on 01962 777313.
