Highways and Byeways management problems

The Clerk to The Parish Council and The Chairman plus The Highways Engineer went on a walkabout around The Parish on Wednesday the 13th of February: the purpose being to point out all the important problems affecting roads, pathways and road junctions and road signs and gutters. As a result the Lassington Lane junction with the B1425  has had some work done in filling in potholes but I might add the repairs do not look as if they will last very long. The dangerous junction where the Lassington Reach Development abuts on to Lassington Lane was also pointed out and since the meeting we have received news that the junction is not yet finished and further road safety construction is yet to be completed.

Parish Plan Implementation Programme

At its February meeting the Parish Council approved in principle a programme of fifteen individual projects all derived from the Refreshed Parish Plan approved last year. Those schemes requiring capital expenditure are likely to be funded from the Lassington Reach Section 106 Developers Contributions Agreement which has been set aside for this purpose.  A team of parish councillors and volunteers will now be working up each project for implementation over the next two to three years.

Here is a very brief summary:_

A new Lassington Wood Management Plan.

To provide outdoor gym equipment, zip wire and picnic facilities for Highnam Recreational Park.

The completion of the footway around Oakridge is now being passed out  tender to local contractors,

Improvements to Highnam Court cricket ground and The Dell and other sporting facilities,

Re-establishment of a Youth Club,

Improvements to public transport,

Establishment of new social club/community facilities,

Enhance the facilities available at Mary Grove,

Deal with traffic speeding problems and finally to secure groun for further allotments,
