Welcome to Bishop's Tachbrook


PARISH COUNCIL MEETING – 20th April 2017 cancelled. Next meeting on 27th April

Update Traffic calming – Safer route to school

The public consultation feedback together with the results of the safety audit are now being studied by Debbie Poynton at WCC. A review meeting with AC Lloyd & BTPC is scheduled for the 25th April where Debbie will advise any necessary modifications to the scheme & schedule of works. Watch this space for a further update at the end of April.


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.

Refuse and recycling collection will change over Christmas

Your collection will be one day later than normal during Christmas week.

The normal collection day of Thursday 29 Dec will change to Friday 30 Dec. Normal collection dates resume on bank holiday Monday 2 January 2017.

Christmas card and wrapping paper recycling

Recycle wrapping paper and Christmas cards with your cardboard in your recycling bag. Please keep out foil wrapping paper, glittery wrapping paper and cards, ribbons, bows and tape – these cannot be recycled.

Christmas tree recycling

Please cut your real Christmas tree into pieces and put it in your green bin for collection throughout January 2017. Make sure all decorations, tree stands, pots and netting are removed

If you don’t have a green bin please take your tree to Princes Drive Recycling Centre or Cherry Orchard Recycling Centre.


Oakley Wood Road closure

Oakley wood Road will be closed to all traffic from Monday 14th November to Wednesday 15th November. This is to enable the road section past the new entrance to Oakley Meadows to be resurfaced.

Superfast broadband – Have your say

The Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire (CSW) Broadband team is looking to extend superfast broadband coverage even further across the area during the Contract 3 phase of the Project.

To achieve this, Warwickshire County Council (as lead authority for the Project) intends to procure further coverage of NGA broadband infrastructure (capable of delivering download speeds of at least 30 Mbps) to areas in Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire where such broadband is currently unavailable, by the end of 2017.

We have already asked suppliers where they plan to roll out their superfast broadband networks over the next 3 years and we have now opened the public consultation, which gives suppliers and residents an opportunity to comment on the areas that, it is claimed, will be covered during this time.

For more information and for your chance to have your say simply visit the public consultation webpage.

The consultation runs from 31st October to 30th November 2016.
