Ravens Way resurfacing works from 15th September

Message from Hampshire County Council:

 

Operation Resilience – NF997 Ravens Way, Milford on Sea – Carriageway Resurfacing

 

As part of Operation Resilience, Hampshire County Council’s programme to make Hampshire’s roads more resilient to the effects of extreme weather and heavy traffic, this is to inform you of upcoming carriageway resurfacing in Ravens Way, between the junctions with Westover Road.

 

The resurfacing works are programmed to start on 15 September 2020 and are expected to last for 4 days, during which time the road will be closed to vehicular traffic between the hours of 09:00 – 16:30hrs. The road will be open as normal during the evening.

 

The above timescales are weather dependent, any significant changes to the scheduled dates will be made clear on the yellow sign boards located at the works limits.

 

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, works will be carried out ensuring safe working practices, and social distancing between site operatives and members of the public are maintained at all times. The appropriate traffic management will be in place to prevent any interaction.

 

In order to help us to complete the work as quickly as possible, please ensure that no vehicles are parked on the road on the days of the resurfacing. Please be aware any vehicles left parked on the road that prevent the works taking place, face the risk of being removed.

For Ravens Way residents:  For your safety and that of our workforce, we are unable to guarantee vehicular access to and from your property during working hours. Should you need to make an essential journey during the periods of closure, please contact a member of the workforce in advance and they will be able to advise if they can accommodate your request. Pedestrian access will be available at all times.

 

The surfacing operation uses a separate bitumen layer in addition to the new asphalt carriageway surface. In order to avoid potential injury or damage, please do not walk across the carriageway during the works unless directed by a member of the workforce.

 

Thank you for your co-operation and apologies for any inconvenience these works may cause.

 

If you need more information please email roads@hants.gov.uk

Seawall works update from NFDC

On 19th August the contractor will be commencing the mobilisation of the necessary containers and units for the site compound. These will initially be delivered to the car park at Paddy’s Gap (as shown on the attached plan, 1st page) along with the first pieces of plant. This will be stored in an area outside of the car park boundary that has used previously when undertaking coastal works and will be fenced for security.

From Monday 24th August the contractor will be in a position to transfer these units to the site compound location, (as shown on page 2 of the attached) and commence the setting up of their site compound. The NFDC land fronting Nautica Reach properties will not be available for the public and so the footpath diversion will be changed to the eastern side of the White House. However, access will be available across the front of the White House to view the works.

Also from Monday smaller rock deliveries are expected to commence by road to Paddy’s Gap car park. This rock will be used to construct a suitable access road within the area of the failed seawall, known as site 1. The red line on the plan shows the proposed access route from Paddy’s Gap.

Vessels have been secured for the main rock delivery, which will be Larvik rock from Norway, expected to be in two loads of approximately 5,000t and 4,000t. Once in the area the vessel will be moored of the IoW (Yarmouth area) in sheltered waters that will enable transfer of rock to a smaller barge for delivery to site. This work will of course need to be undertaken in good weather conditions, to enable transfer from the barge to the beach. The plan at the moment is that the main vessel will be arriving to the site around 5th September, allowing for weather conditions.

NFDC is continuing to refine the design and by the very nature of urgent works that will be some elements that cannot be completely designed until on site. This is a very dynamic site with changes to continue to happen on a daily basis to the seawall and that once on site there may be a need to change certain elements.

Update: casual vacancies for Parish Councillors positions to be decided by election

The Parish Council has been notified by New Forest District Council that the two casual vacancies for Parish Councillor positions will now be decided by an election.  This is likely to take place in May 2021, under current legislation.

This is because 10 electors have requested an election take place.

Until this time, the Parish Council will continue to operate with its 10 elected Councillors.  There will be a call for applicants to put themselves forward for election for the two vacant positions in the Spring of 2021.
