7.4.19. From Somerset Highways

Somerset Highways have advised that Ridge Lane and Corton Denham Road will be closed to all vehicles for Drainage Works for 21 days commencing Tuesday 23 April 2019. Click below for further details:

The following update is from the Parish Clerk as at 8.4.19.:

I have finally made contact with Highways, and discussed/provisionally agreed some details with them. Other details will not be established until the contractor arrives first thing Tuesday 23rd April, when I am planning to gate crash their set-up meeting with Highways. I will pass details on to the village as and when.

There are two parts to the work, the main road and Ridge Lane: the main road may take a bit longer than last time as it is a longer stretch (three drain points rather than two). It has to be agreed with the contractor which to do first, but preferably as per Highways starting with the main road.

The main road will be fully shut from early Tuesday 23rd, with diversion signs via South Cadbury and Compton Castle rather than the originally mooted route via Beacon Lane. The main road should then be re-opened by Friday 3rd May in advance of the May Day bank holiday. It is hoped that weekend opening will be possible, and possibly at other times though we won’t know that till it happens.

Ridge Lane work would then follow on, with better details later.

All affected residents should receive a letter this week, and Highways are using the same contractor as last time – who worked well with affected residents and did everything possible to minimise the aggro.

1.2.19. From the Parish Clerk

Dates are unknown, but will be published as they become available.

Local elections, including five Parish Councillors for the ensuing four years (2019-2023), will be held on Thursday 2nd May, after which (i) the annual Parish Meeting followed by (ii) the annual Parish Council meeting have been fixed for Tuesday 14th May at 7.30pm.
