Road Improvements – West end of the village Closure 28/10 – 22/11

We’ve now been informed that the road works to make a raised junction outside the shop will take place in October. This will improve the whole area including surface drainage.

It looks as though it will take up to FOUR weeks to complete and for a short period Earl’s Corner will also be inaccessible from the east.

This will involve some significant traffic disruption as there will be no traffic access through the junction from any direction.

We will be looking at parking for Villagers to the west and south of the shop with pedestrian access to the Village and shop.

This link will show you the detailed plans for the junction.

We’ve waited several years for this improvement and it looks as though it will really happen this time.

Strategic Land Allocation- Information from the Parish Council

We felt that you should know that Wiltshire Council have sent us the attached map for our Village. This shows 7 sites which have been registered by their owners to ‘make Wiltshire Council aware that the land proposed might be suitable’ for future residential development. Their inclusion in the long term strategic plan does not, we are told, give this land any preference at all in the planning process.

The Parish Council has forwarded its outright and total opposition to these sites. They are all outside our residential boundary and are not required to satisfy future housing needs in Oaksey.’
