starting 14th January
Planning permission was granted in 2015 for an extension in to a new area of land at the existing Duns Tew Sand quarry.
Smiths will start opening up the new area of the quarry this Spring and have been working with the County Council and statutory consultees on satisfying a number of pre-commencement conditions. All of these have been approved with only the road improvements to complete. As part of the negotiations with the Parish Council at the time, it was agreed that Smiths would carry out improvements along both the Duns Tew and Middle Barton Roads. The Council identified 8 sections where the road is to be widened very slightly to help the passage of vehicles.
These locations are spread out along both roads as shown on the this map
The technical details for these works have been agreed with OCC Highways and the legal agreement between OCC and Smiths was completed in December. Smiths have appointed Greenford Ltd as contractors for the project and it is planned to start work week commencing 14 th January.
The works will cause some inconvenience for road users with traffic management in place and, subject to the weather, the works are likely to take up to 8 weeks to complete.
Please contact the Clerk, Chris Keeping, in the first instance if you have any queries or concerns.
