STATEMENT FROM UPTON BISHOP PARISH COUNCIL
ROAD SAFETY AROUND TAN HOUSE LANES
We have received numerous communications to the Chairman and Clerk regard the road safety and risk to lives on the lanes around Tan House and Kempley Road with the overgrown hedges.
We reported the issues last winter to BB and following an onsite visit in January 2021, we were advised no action would be taken as the lanes were safe.
In the last month, we have spoken to the Police and written to some of the landowners. We have written to Balfour Beatty for urgent assistance following recommendation from Police. To date Balfour Beatty are ignoring our requests for assistance. We need immediate attention to this matter to ensure safety for anyone driving, walking, or cycling around these lanes. We will continue to press this matter with assistance from the Police to make BB understand their obligations.
Individual complaints raised on BB website may assist in getting this problem resolved.
Please take care.
Chairman of Upton Bishop Parish Council 1st August 2021
The Parish Council has been working with Balfour Beattie to try to improve the state of the roads in the village.
These documents record what has been discussed at these meetings and proposal for improving ditches and grips maintenance.
In January 2020 a Traffic Calming report was produced for the Parish Council.
