WESTON POWER ANNOUNCEMENT - Cable Laying, Church Lane, Evenley - JUNE 2017

Work will commence on Monday 19th June although the contractor Morrison Utility Services may be present on site Friday 16th June to set up and carry out trial hole excavations. The route on this first phase will be from outside the property The Lawns and going towards the church direction to the Beeches.
The route is going to be ducted which means only a short section of trench will be open at a time with a reinstatement team following.
There should be minimal inconvenience to residents during the works which should take about 9 days to complete. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
The follow up works during the year will be to change the electricity substation in Church Lane with the associated cable laying which will continue in Church Lane but we will give you a little bit more notice with start dates for this work.


Sue Waller would like to thank all those who supported Sunday’s Sale Trail: it was a perfect day and people seemed to enjoy themselves.  All those who were selling raised some money for themselves and their entry fees, together with some kind donations, totalled £150 which was split evenly between St. George’s Church, the Village Hall and Air Ambulance. 


Residents have the opportunity to let South Northamptonshire Council know what they think of its services by completing the annual satisfaction survey.  Residents have until Friday 16th June to complete a short questionnaire allowing them to give feedback on the council’s services, whether it provides value for money and the quality of its day-to-day operations.

The information provided will be used to help the council prioritise its budgets and service provision for future years and make improvements in areas where people have reported concerns. The survey is available to complete on line and can be accessed by logging on to South Northants Council’s website or clicking on     Alternatively those who would prefer a hard copy can request one by calling 01327 322322.


Evenley Parish Council have re-instated the grit bin on Broad Lane near Lawyers close.  It was removed by NCC as they felt the old one was no longer servicable and if it was to be replaced the Parish Council would have to fund the installation and replenishment of all salt used.  RRT (Rapid Relief Team) , represented by a local parishioner Brent Douglass, have very kindly funded the replacement unit and EPC will continue to replenish the salt used as necessary.  This is another example of the EPC working closely with our community, resolving issues that our parishioners care about and managing the precept finances to ensure that funds are available to support these ongoing activities.

EVENLEY ROAD MARKINGS – Update December 2016

Following on from the article in the winter newsletter  regarding the ‘keep clear’ road markings on the corner of the Green, leading into Church Lane, Evenley Parish Council would like residents to know that: 

The road markings were removed because it was discovered that they were installed without the appropriate permission from the Highways Authority and they were not compliant with highway regulations.

The proposed installation of yellow lines is in accordance with a suggestion received from a resident prior to the meeting the parish council held with Northamptonshire Highways.

We will be holding  a consultation in the New Year where residents will be able to express views on appropriate markings to prevent obstructions to traffic and to keep pedestrians safe. This will be an agenda item for discussion at our next meeting on 30th January 2017.
