Your Parish Council needs your help

ROAD SIGNS

Please would all householders who have foliage that grows close to or overhangs advisory/mandatory road signs such as speed limits, road names or direction signposts to keep these well clear for good visibility from 20-30 metres. Lack of visibility of speed limits and stop signs is dangerous and Hampshire Highways advise us that they have the authority to clear the foliage and charge the costs to the home owner.

 

HELP TO KEEP DRAINS CLEAR

Would all those households with gravel drives in Upper Farringdon please ensure that the gravel does not drift onto the roads as this adds to blockages to street drainage resulting in flooding.

With thanks from Farringdon Parish Council
