A5 KILSBY TO WEEDON Multi-Disciplinary Project  - Update Bulletin 17a – 19.11.2019
  
Last weekend, resurfacing works to the A5 in Phase 6, from B4036 Long Buckby to B5385 Watford, were substantially completed from a point approximately 100 metres south of the access to Old Watling Street to a point approximately 300 metres north of the bridge over The Grand Union Canal,
 
Unfortunately, owing to unforeseen circumstances, resurfacing of the entrances to Old Watling Street, the canal side car park and Welton Hythe Marina together with certain areas of  footpath were not carried out.
 
We now plan to carry out these particular works between 8pm Wednesday 20th and 6am Thursday 21st November 2019 whilst the road in Phase 6 is closed for drainage works. 
 
We are planning to start these outstanding Works at the Old Watling Street entrance and work in a northerly direction towards Welton Hythe Marina.
 
The noisier operations associated with these works will be completed by midnight. 
 
Please be assured that we will make every effort to maintain access at all times. 
 
However, we shall be grateful if you would bear with us, particularly when we are working across your particular entrance.
 
Please note that between 8pm Friday 22nd and 6am Monday 25th November 2019, we are planning, weather permitting, to carry out resurfacing in Phase 6, heading northwards from a point approximately 300 metres north of the bridge over The Grand Union Canal to a point approximately 200 metres north of the entrance to Welton Hythe Marina.
 
Please note that all our planned road works may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

14 November 2019A5 KILSBY TO WEEDON Multi-Disciplinary Project Update Bulletin 17 – 14.11.2019

A5 KILSBY TO WEEDON Multi-Disciplinary Project - Update Bulletin 17 – 14.11.2019
 
We are currently carrying out drainage works in Phase 6, from B4036 Long Buckby to B5385 Watford and at the B5385 Watford / Welton junction. Work at the junction is being carried out using temporary 3-way traffic signal control with the Welton / Ashby St. Ledgers road being closed. These drainage works are being carried out overnight between 8pm and 6am Monday to Friday and are currently planned for completion by Friday 22nd November 2019. Local access will be maintained via the designated diversion route on the A361 Kilsby roundabout to the north.
 
Resurfacing works in Phase 6, from B4036 Long Buckby to B5385 Watford, previously postponed because of unseasonal heavy rainfall, are now planned to be carried out over the following weekends:
 
1. Between 8pm Friday 15th and 6am Monday 18th November 2019 (phase 6 weekend 1).   and
 
2. Between 8pm Friday 22nd and 6am Monday 25th November 2019 (phase 6 weekend 2).
 
Between 8pm Friday 15th and 6am Monday 18th November 2019 (phase 6 weekend 1), we are planning to resurface the carriageway, heading southwards from a point approximately 300 metres north of the bridge over The Grand Union Canal to a point approximately 100 metres south of the access to Old Watling Street. As certain sections of road are being reconstructed to a depth of approximately nine inches, large quantities of waste material will be produced which will require replacing with a large tonnage of resurfacing materials. This will require 300 heavy lorry movements along a particularly narrow length of the A5. This large number of movements is a risk to the health and safety of road users and our own workforce. In order to reduce the risk, we will be using Phase 5, from Daventry Road (Norton) to B4036 Long Buckby, as a lorry handling area. This will allow us to keep the working area available for only those lorries required for loading milled material or tipping surfacing materials into the paving machine. We are also planning to use this closure of Phase 5 to carry out High Friction Surfacing and install road studs.
 
Access for yellow permit holders off the A5 in Phase 5 will be from the  Daventry Road (Norton) / Whilton junction.
 
Access for purple permit holders south of the northern limit of resurfacing works in Phase 6, i.e. 300 metres north of the bridge over The Grand Union Canal, will be from the B4036 Long Buckby junction. 

Please note however, that access ACROSS the A5 at the B4036 Long Buckby junction will NOT be available at any time during phase 6 weekend 1.
 
Access for purple permit holders north of the northern limit of resurfacing works in Phase 6 will be from the B5385 Watford junction. 
 
Between 8pm Friday 22nd and 6am Monday 25th November 2019 (phase 6 weekend 2), we are planning to resurface the carriageway, heading northwards from a point approximately 300 metres north of the bridge over The Grand Union Canal to a point approximately 200 metres north of the entrance to Welton Hythe Marina.
 
Access to purple permit holders during phase 6 weekend 2 will be available from both the B4036 Long Buckby junction to the south and the B5385 Watford junction to the north. Access will also be available across both junctions. 

Please note that all our planned road works may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances. 
 
Local businesses will be open as usual during these essential works so please use your local shops, bars and restaurants and ask others to do the same. I’m sure that your local business community would appreciate it. 
 
I apologise for any disruption our works may cause. Please plan ahead and allow extra time for your journey. 
 
Unfortunately, there have been incidences of unauthorised vehicles being driven into our working areas. These irresponsible drivers put themselves and our workforce at risk of serious injury or death. As a result of these incursions we have employed a Safety Camera vehicle which will record any such incidences and report the offender to the Police

The kerbing works will require the closure of the Welton / Ashby St. Ledgers road at the junction but access will be maintained to Watford.

Please also note that as currently, there are no works planned on the A5 between 6am Saturday 9th and 8pm Monday 11th November 2019, the road will be open to through traffic between Kilsby and Weedon.

Between 8pm Friday 15th and 6am Monday 18th November 2019 and

16 October 2019Campaign focuses on tackling hate crime

People are urged to spread love, not hate during a campaign week to raise awareness of the impact of hate crime.

A hate crime is any offence which is understood by the victim or any other person – including witnesses, friends or family members - as being motivated by prejudice or hate

National Hate Crime Awareness Week runs from 12 to 19 October and aims to empower communities to work together to tackle the issue.

As part of the campaign, the Daventry District and South Northamptonshire Community Safety Partnership will be in Daventry town centre on Thursday 17 October offering advice and giving information on hate crime and how to report it locally.

They will also be handing out hate crime awareness window stickers to taxi drivers, for display in their cabs, and distributing beer mats to pubs in the town centre.

People can join in on social media by following the Partnership on Twitter @Daventry_CSP, where they will be sharing messages to raise awareness of hate crime, using the hashtags #NationalHCAW #WeStandTogether, #NoPLaceForHate #SafePlaceforAll # SpreadLoveNotHate and #StopHateStartHere

People can report hate crimes on Daventry District Council’s website at www.daventrydc.gov.uk/online

16 October 2019Free tree offer to combat climate change

Groups can apply for an urban tree pack featuring five each of Crab Apple, Hazel and Field Maple trees or a bee-friendly pack including two each of Goat Willow, Hazel, Crab Apple and Rowan trees.

The offer is being made as part of the Woodland Trust’s Big Climate Fightback initiative – a campaign to get one million people to join the fight against climate change by pledging to plant a tree by Saturday 30 November, during National Tree Week.

Interested groups should download an application pack from www.daventrydc.gov.uk/treeweek and submit it ahead of the deadline at 5pm on Monday 4 November.

For more information, people can email communitygrants@daventrydc.gov.uk

16 October 2019Construction work starts on Mulberry Place cinema development

The construction of Daventry’s new cinema gets fully under way this month as contractors start installing the foundations for the Mulberry Place development.

Daventry District Council (DDC) has appointed construction firm Willmott Dixon to carry out the £12.5m transformation of the former library site off North Street, Daventry, into a new four-screen cinema complex, with restaurants, public square and splash fountains.

Following the demolition of the former library buildings and archaeological digs this summer, work will now start on installing the piled foundations for the new cinema building, which will enable the steel frame structure to go up early next year.

The development is expected to take around 18 months to complete, with the cinema set to open its doors in spring 2021. DDC appointed Willmott Dixon as contractors using the Scape National Construction Framework, which specialises in procuring the most efficient suppliers for the public sector.

DDC and Willmott Dixon have already worked together as part of the framework to deliver the Rainsbrook Crematorium and Monksmoor Primary School developments.

The Council has also reached a deal with The Arc Cinema to run the cinema complex and is now working towards signing up tenants for the two restaurants that form part of the development. Arc will be instructing their own contractor to undertake the specialist fit out works associated with the Cinema building, and they will commence those activities toward the end of 2020, overlapping with Willmott Dixon’s finishing works externally.

Ian Vincent, Chief Executive at Daventry District Council, said: “We’re pleased to have appointed Willmott Dixon to build this flagship development in Daventry town centre.

“They already have a strong track record in helping us to deliver construction projects within our local community and we look forward to working with them to turn our plans for a new cinema into reality by spring 2021.”

Michelle Cotterill, director at Willmott Dixon, said: “We are looking forward to working with Daventry District Council once again, this time on its Mulberry Place development, to create a new social and leisure space in the centre of town that can be enjoyed by local communities.

“At Willmott Dixon, we have a purpose beyond profit and that includes being passionate about leaving a lasting positive legacy, something that Mulberry Place will provide for many decades to come. Over the duration of the scheme, we have committed to investing into the local community. This will see us working with local schools and colleges on community projects, as well as sourcing local spend and labour wherever possible.”

HOW TO CREATE AND PLANT A SUCCESSFUL POND - with Speaker Linda Smith, from Waterside Nursery, Sharnford, Leicestershire

03 October 2019Passengers at Long Buckby advised to check journeys amid timetable change from Monday 7th October 2019

Passengers using Long Buckby station are being advised to check their travel plans when a revised London Northwestern Railway timetable comes into effect next week (w/c Oct 7).

The changes, which are being made to improve performance across the network, will reduce the number of Birmingham-bound services calling at the station per hour from three to two.

The services which will no longer stop are those which previously called at Long Buckby at 25 minutes past the hour, between 0925 and 1725 inclusive, from Monday to Saturday. Southbound services towards London Euston are unaffected.

Jonny Wiseman, customer experience director for London Northwestern Railway, said: “Keeping our trains running on time is our top priority and it is sometimes necessary to make changes to calling patterns in order to save vital minutes.

“Our services suffer frequent delays between Coventry and Birmingham and removing one call per hour at Long Buckby will result in significant improvements in performance, benefiting all our passengers.

“While our analysis shows the affected services are not heavily used, we thank our customers at Long Buckby for their understanding and urge passengers to check their journeys before travelling.”

17 September 2019New websites will outline journey to unitary

Two new websites have been launched offering a reliable source of information about the move toward unitary governance in Northamptonshire.

Named ‘Future Northants North’ and ‘Future Northants West’ they carry the same core information while outlining the separate processes being followed in the north and west of the county.

These dedicated sites describe the process so far, who is involved, progress from public meetings, and news including details of the upcoming shadow authority elections.

Strategic Delivery Director for the Future Northants unitary programme Theresa Grant, said: “This is by far and away the best means of keeping up to date with our progress.

“There is understandably a great deal of speculation about our move toward unitary governance and these two sites offer the most reliable means of ensuring you are aware of the facts and keeping up to date on progress.

“And if the sites don’t have answers to your questions, you will be able to contact us and be confident of an accurate response.”

The sites are available at https://futurenorthantsnorth.org/  and https://www.futurenorthantswest.org/

11 September 2019A grand offer to help good neighbours thrive

Communities in Daventry District can apply for up to £1,000 of funding to set up a scheme aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of their residents.

Daventry District Council (DDC) is offering the grants to groups wanting to set up a Good Neighbours Scheme in their area, as well as a toolkit, based on national good practice, to help them get established.

Good Neighbours Schemes work by setting up a volunteer co-ordinator in a village, parish, or neighbourhood area, whose job is to match people who need help with vetted volunteers in the area who are willing to be a good neighbour by offering that help.

They are currently up and running in Moulton, Crick, Welton, Byfield, while there are six further schemes pending in Kilsby, Woodford Halse, Long Buckby, Boughton, Welford and Creaton.

The scheme’s profile was raised on a national level recently when it was featured in the Village Survival Guide, a new book published by the Prince's Countryside Fund which aims to help rural communities thrive. The Guide is available at https://www.princescountrysidefund.org.uk/research/read-vsg

The Good Neighbours scheme is run by DDC in partnership with Northamptonshire ACRE to help combat social isolation and loneliness, and develop community spirit and cohesion.

DACT (Daventry Area Community Transport) can help set up Village Travel Clubs, and Daventry Volunteer Centre Happy at Home Partnership can help with the recruiting of volunteers. 

Councillor Alan Hills, Portfolio Holder for Community, Culture and Leisure, said: “Good Neighbours Scheme are already proving really valuable in a number of areas of Daventry District, by giving a helping hand to the most vulnerable and isolated members of our community.

“We’d love to see more schemes established throughout the District and there is funding and support available, so I would urge parishes and community groups to please get in touch with us to find out how to get involved.”

11 September 2019A helping hand to keep District homes warm

Vulnerable households across Daventry District are being offered a helping hand to reduce their energy bills from the Warm Homes Fund.

The Northants Warm Homes partnership has secured nearly £4 million to provide fully-funded gas central heating for fuel poor homes across Northamptonshire that do not already have it.

The money will be matched by other grant monies and by contributions from landlords and local authorities to ensure that eligible homes will not need to pay a penny.

The households eligible for the Warm Homes Fund are those most in need of support, including people on a low income that have high energy bills, and who are vulnerable to the cold because of health conditions.

Both owner-occupiers and private tenants can apply, though tenants will need the permission of their landlord. The project aims to put ‘first-time’ gas central heating in homes, so properties with central heating powered by oil, or in villages which are off the gas network, are not eligible.

The Warm Homes Fund scheme will run until 2021 and fit efficient gas central heating in around 1,400 fuel-poor homes across the county. It is run by Surefire Management Services on behalf of local authorities in the county, including Daventry District Council.

Councillor Richard Auger, Environmental Health and Housing Portfolio Holder on Daventry District Council, said: “This Council believes that everyone should have a good quality and safe place to live.

“Being able to heat your home properly and efficiently is an important part of that and we hope this new programme will help reduce fuel poverty and have a positive impact on people’s health.

“I would urge anyone who thinks they might be eligible to visit the website or call the freephone number to find out more.”

Nationally, the Warm Homes Fund has been established by National Grid and is administered by Affordable Warmth Solutions.

Jeremy Nesbitt, Managing Director of Affordable Warmth Solutions, said: “We are excited about this investment from National Grid and are delighted to support Daventry District Council to fund the scheme to address fuel poverty across their area.

“Solving the issues associated with fuel poverty continues to challenge many of our stakeholders and the feedback we’ve already received provides evidence of how the Warm Homes Fund will make a positive difference to thousands of homes throughout Great Britain.”

All support through the Warm Homes Fund scheme is subject to the eligibility criteria.

To find out more visit www.northantswarmhomes.com or phone 0800 029 4542. All visits will be by appointment only and assessors will carry photo ID.

Residents can also access advice and support to improve their home’s energy efficiency and reduce their bills at www.northamptonshireenergysavingservice.org.uk
