Your Local Library Service And How You Can Stop It Disappearing

Our community has an exciting opportunity to start our own lending library with books supplied by the BANES Library Service. This is a one-off opportunity to put this into place and establish our very own library. This could also extend to a place to meet for coffee as well.

Proposed Drainage Works on A368 Wick Road in October

B&NES have a scheme planned for 16th October to improve the drainage of the A368 Wick Road between Folly Lane and Moorledge Road. This is in light of flooding of property ‘The Lodge House’ and also of the carriageway, the latter completely covering the carriageway and preventing access to Bishop Sutton. Work was attempted to be undertaken in June under temporary traffic signals, however, the lorries that use the road were running too close to the trench and it was unsafe to continue. As such, it is only possible to undertake the work under a road closure. The work is proposed to last for 3 weeks, during which time the road will be closed to vehicular traffic but open to pedestrians and cyclists.

Click here for more information or here for the full diversion, however, this is very long because closing an 'A road' means that the diversion must be along roads of equal category.
