Einformation: PUBLIC FOOTPATH NO. 60 – CHURCH LANE ADEL

Please see below information regarding the above received from Cllr Barry Anderson, which may be of interest to you.

As you may be aware the above footpath which runs from Church Lane to Bedquilts has been due to be upgraded following discussions and agreements between the Council and the owners of the various properties that have shared private vehicular access via this footpath.

I have now received an update from the Public Rights of Way Officer today (25/10/17) to say that following negotiations it has been agreed that an innovative, sustainable surfacing and drainage technique has been identified and will be used here, known as “flexi-pave” which comprises bound recycled rubber and stone chippings.

Once the agreements with the residents have been completed in respect of financial contribution an order will be raised by the Council in respect of their share of the cost.

It is hoped the work can start sometime in November. Whilst the work takes place it will be necessary to close off the path temporarily to public use and the work will be done over 3 to 5 days with 4 individual days need for the flexi pave surface to set properly.

I attach a plan how each individual section will be done on 4 different days and will start at the Bedquilts end and finish at the Church Lane end.

Einformation: Severe Weather Warning: Yellow Warning of Wind – Tuesday 12th September to Wed 13th

See update below, received today from Cllr Anderson;

The Met Office have issued a Yellow Warning of Wind

Valid from 20:00 on Tue, 12th Sep 2017 until 10:00 on Wed, 13th Sep 2017

Very strong winds with gusts of 55-65 mph, perhaps reaching 75 mph in exposed places, are looking increasingly likely on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

Longer journey times by road, rail and air are likely, with restrictions on roads and bridges. There is also a chance of power cuts, and damage to trees and perhaps buildings.

The strongest winds are expected to arrive in the west of the region later on Tuesday evening and move eastwards overnight. There is some uncertainty in peak wind strengths and how quickly winds will ease on Wednesday morning. Heavy rain will be an additional hazard, especially in the north of the warning area, resulting in especially difficult driving conditions. This warning has been expanded in area and with the likelihood of “medium” impacts increased.

Further updates will be sent if and when the situation dictates.
