As Parish clerk I have spoken to Tom at K&J Hodge regarding the road closure. He has assured me that he will ensure those residents with disabilities and mobility issues will get as much assistance and access as possible to limit their disruption. This includes access for emergency services and carers. The work will be on the road but all pavements are unhindered except the pavement outside Pear Tree Close as this is need of repair. He has said that if anyone wishes to speak to him that he will be available on site to discuss and help those in need. They have placed signs on the highway to advise people and the as stated the road will be closed between 7.30-17.00 Monday to Friday. They will be able to get back to their homes during the evening and may need to plan deliveries etc around the road closure.
They intend to get the work done in the best time to ensure minimum disruption to the village and Tom is a really approachable man who wants to help as much as he can.
If anyone has any questions they can contact the contractors on 01823 257269.
