New access way to Oakley Meadows

Bloors contractors will start work on the new access way on Monday 16 January, and will take 8 weeks.

The footpath/cycle way will be 3m wide with 2 m wide grass verges on either side.

To provide the necessary width, we have had to relinquish a section of the allotments equivalent to 2 plots.

The allotments will get a new fence and a new track to the gate.

Once completed the accessway will be lit.

For the duration of the works there will be no vehicle access beyond the Club car park. But the allotments and Horticultural shed can readily be reached on foot.

The access way will not be opened for use until the autumn, because it will take that long to complete the roads on the estate side. By then Bloors expect to have 50 houses built and occupied.


Harbury Lane Road Closure

From 27th January until 1st February Harbury Lane will be closed 150m either side or Cicero Apprach, Warwick Gates, for resurfacing works.

No Bus Route Changes For Now- 15th December 2016

The Parish Council received welcome news today from the Country Council that there will be no changes to local bus routes for the time being. The recent Parish Magazine article reporting proposed route changes had prompted resident concerns. Over the last week a PC team has worked through the issues raised and this resulted in requesting a postponement of the changes to allow other options to be looked at.

The PC, a resident representative and local bus user representative will work with the County and bus operators to come up with the best options for providing routes to serve new housing in the parish. We will keep you informed of any further proposals that develop.
