Mound Update as at 05/08/2016

Sun, 07 Aug 2016 18:49 by Sue Butler

Bridge Street was re-opened on Fri 5th August.

Discussion is ongoing with Daventry District Council and the MoD in respect of what happens next. Since our last update the Council, working under guidance of the Contractor, have agreed to re open the road. As no work can currently be undertaken, the site has been rearranged which has enabled the road to be made safely accessible again.
The Mound is still fenced off and continues to have 24/7 security which is based in the cabin on the verge at the top of the Mound. The safety of all in the village remains the highest priority. You can be assured that this position is being reassessed frequently.
All previous statements regarding safety measures and monitoring of site still stand.
As soon as we receive any further news or directive from either Daventry District Council or the MoD we will, of course, let you know. We would ask for your continued patience and understanding until we can find the right way forward for the benefit of the residents of Weedon.

DDC - Paint Means Poo Campaign September/ October 2016

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 06:30 by Sue Butler

Daventry District Council will be carrying out a focussed district-wide 6 week dog poop spraying campaign in September 2016, to raise the profile of the campaign with residents, and to enable us to gather data to allow us to analyse its effectiveness.

I have sent information to the nominated residents who have taken part in the spraying initiative previously, to see if they would like to take part in this campaign. More »

Spraying initiative involves spraying high visibility, brightly-coloured biodegradable paint on dog mess, to highlight the extent of fouling and shocking irresponsible owners into clearing up after their pets.

We will be producing publicity materials to accompany the campaign so that people understand what it is all about. These will be promoted on our website, through press releases and on social media.

Once again they will be asked to identify a discrete area of need for spraying and to be willing to carry out the spraying and keep details of the extent of fouling in this area over a 6 week period, starting on 5th September 2016. During the week before the campaign we will provide a free canister of high visibility, biodegradable spray, as well as instructions on when, where and how often to spray. We will also send out some promotional materials to publicise the campaign in your locality. We will ask for feedback, which will be used to judge the effectiveness of the initiative in deterring dog fouling.

Please email or call Sally Johnson if you would like any more information regarding this campaign – contact details below.

Update on Mound - 30/07/2016

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 07:59 by Sue Butler

Due to a lack of response from the MoD in respect of how the work on the Mound is to proceed, it has been necessary to extend the road closure for up to another two weeks. This is for two reasons:

  • to provide further time to receive an update from MoD that gives direction in respect of the works
  • to enable some re-alignment in the compound area such that if no suitable response received from the MoD, the road will be re-opened until a directive is received

All previous statements regarding safety measures and monitoring of site still stand. More »

We would ask for your patience and understanding at this time as we do all we can to determine a way forward and impart presure on the Local Authority and MoD to determine a way forward.
