Highways update

Highways Update

The following has been taken from May’s Walton & Wellesbourne News, it has mention of the possible traffic issues caused by the building work taking place Redhill site.

Written by Geoff Rose in WWN.

This year we have been spared severe frosts but the rain has washed out weaknesses in our roads and walkways but we do regularly report faults to WCC Highways  Our roads are wearing out at busy junctions and some of you may have noticed paint marks at the “T” junction of Newbold Rd. and Kineton Rd, indicating an area due for resurface repair. Contractors trenching for the BT fibre optic campaign have not helped.  They have left “make do” mends in the asphalt and twice had be called back to re-work cuts across Stratford Rd. and Bridge St,

Early last November we had meetings with the site management at Redhill of M V Kelly and Persimmon to come to an understanding to observe the 7.5 tonne limit necessary in Bridge St / Ettington Rd and Stratford Rd.  Thankfully this resulted in the motorway – type road sign erected late November at the north end of Bridge St (see above) directing suppliers trucks round the Wellesbourne Bypass, A429.  What is more, this was incorporated in their Traffic Plan as a contract condition with their suppliers, which made it legal! Since then, we’ve made a similar memorandum of understanding with Banner Homes to use the Bypass route and very detailed definition of the route to and from Lowes Lane, which again was incorporated in their Traffic Plan.  For this 5 – house project in such a confined space we keep a daily contact with the site manager who shares his immediate tasks  with us and essentially includes local residents of Lowes Lane and Chapel St.  We have a very dedicated group of people who report  to the PC Office about stray trucks squeezing through Chapel St.   Unfortunately, some of these are “White Vans”  concerned with  the services to be connected to the Donkey Field. We have had brief contact with Graddons at the former Police House site who responded  positively by providing extra netting barriers to protect the side of the Pharmacy against falling rubble during demolition. Fortunately this went off with only the barrier slightly bent! Finally, at local market traffic meetings under our Community Forum we are concerned that with the prospect of much further development in the area of the “Distribution Park”;  we need to consider a Traffic Plan  for the whole Bypass & Westward area to include vehicle and pedestrian circulation safety.

Rural Watch

Sometime overnight a barn has been entered at a farm in Stratford road WELLESBOURNE.

A window has been broken on a VW 4×4 vehicle and an ipad  stolen from within.

Also the contents of a chest freezer, 2 chainsaws, and a Honda strimmer have been stolen.

Enquiries are due to commence this morning. Incident no 45 0f 24/04/14 refers.

Also overnight a burglary has taken place at a golf course in Bearley road SNITTERFIELD.

Again enquiries have commenced. Incident no 53 of 24/04/14 refers.

After a fairly quiet spell it appears that we are seeing a slight increase in burglary and theft across our rural area.

The local team will be out on patrol as much as possible to deter this activity and hopefully bring the offenders to justice.

In the meantime please be extra vigilant and report anything suspicious on 101 or obviously 999 if you think a crime is taking or is about to take place.

Rural Watch Police Update

Police Rural Watch

This information has been received from the Police rural watch. It has a specific comment on an incident that happened in Wellesbourne but is useful to know what is happening in our local area in general.

We have received reports of doorstep sellers in SNITTERFIELD  who are generally from the Nottingham area and claim to be ex offenders trying to make a living from selling items such as dusters and household cleaning products. Invariably they do not have the required pedlars licence to do this and often use pressure selling techniques.

If you are in any doubt about the authenticity of any ID that may be presented or are suspicious about any person who comes to your door please politely decline their services and discreetly phone Warwickshire police on 101 so that local officers can carry out the required checks.

Further to this and just in, we have received a report of a notice board and bus shelter being vandalised in Stratford road WELLESBOURNE sometime after 8pm on Wednesday 16th April.

Incident number 250 of 17/04/2014 refers.

Please phone us on 101 if you have any information regarding this or any other crime.
