ROAD CLOSURE

A4155 at Tower House
closed 16th to 20th September
between 21.00 and 05.00.

Residents will want to know that the A4155 will be closed at Tower House on the dates/times shown above. There will be extensive diversion signage across a wide local area.  David Bartholomew (OCC & District Councillor) is trying to get 'Resident Access Only' signs for Mill Lane and Station road to prevent ‘rat-running’ through the village by normal A4155 traffic. This closure has been imposed by Thames Water in the face of strong resistance from OCC officers

THEFT FROM & DAMAGE TO CARS

Theft in Shiplake has been unusual in recent years but we are not immune to crime. Recent incidents  invoving nails purposely placed to damage tyres in the Shiplake Cross and Binfield Heath area are one aspect of this.  Thefts accompanied by serious damage to the cars have now been reported on the lane leading upto the church and College grounds nearer the river. In the past there have also been thefts from cars parked on Mill Lane on the approach to the locks.

The parish council is discussing with the school and will liaise with the  community policing  team to determine what preventative measures might be taken, not least possible lighting on the lane. 

IMPORTANTLY: AS ALWAYS DO NOT LEAVE ARTICLES OF VALUE ON CAR SEATS OR ELSEWHERE WHERE THEY ARE VISIBLE TO THIEVES!

Baskerville Lane Street Party

“There are so many new people in Baskerville Lane, let’s have a street party to get to know them.” So Clare McCarthy and her helpers, Angela Jones, Susan Walker, Jennie Rechner, Viv Mitchell  and Helen Woods-Ballard got organising and on 15th September her suggestion was put into practice.

The party was hosted at Little Timbers, and Pimms and hot dogs were provided, as well as cakes and sandwiches brought by those attending. Representatives for almost all the households in Baskerville Lane attended, including our oldest and much-loved resident Bill Wyatt.

Retirement Village: Inspector's formal site visit 18th Sept. @ 9:30am

This takes place tomorrow morning (9:30am) starting at the top of New Road. As per the earlier Forum notification, the Inspector will be accompanied by the 2 landscape consultants, representing SODC and the applicant. The intention is for the Inspector to walk along New Road, possibly Baskerville Lane, then Crowsley Road and Station Road upto the junction with the A4155, continuing along the footpath adjoining the A4155 to the proposed footpath site entry to the site. He may well also visit Woodlands Road, Mill Lane and the site itself with access from the A4155.

I also hope to accompany them but other commitments may prevail.  Perhaps 2-3 other residents as interested parties might also attend. Tina Dalzell has indicated she would, for which many thanks.

PLEASE NOTE: Questions cannot be asked of, nor views expressed to the Inspector, other than perhaps politely suggesting a better view might be appreciated in a given instance. He will make the position quite clear, if necessary, that he will not be listening to any aditional evidence from residents.

Any other residents wishing to be present during the site visit should feel free to contact me via my mobile no. on the website.
