Cobhall Common Flood Alleviation

The Parish Council have agreed to contribute £3,000 towards a new pipe to take away flood water from the bus stop area in Cobhall Common. A number of houses have been flooded here in the past few years.

Total cost is around £10,000 which needs to be raised quickly as we only have a short window of opportunity to do the work.

A fundraising appeal was launched following a residents’ meeting on 9th November. The current total pledged is …

December update!

Despite the recent communications issues(!), initiatives on the proposed Cobhall pipeline have been progressing in the background, and we know that residents are keen to hear about it. The appeal organisers are intending to arrange another meeting in the village hall – hopefully w/c 13th December – at which we expect to be able to give you the following information:

  • Firm costings on the pipeline
  • The proposed contractor
  • The timeline for the work to be done [due to a number of circumstances, we now have a longer window of time than originally thought &, if residents agree, would expect the project to commence in the new year].
  • How we intend to redeem the pledges that residents made to pay for the work.

Please look out for the date of the next residents’ meeting in the village hall which we will circulate as soon as it is confirmed. However, do not worry if you are unable to attend as we will circulate the decisions from the meeting afterwards.

Gigaclear deployment now under review

Around 18 months ago Fastershire announced revised plans for its contractor Gigaclear to install fibre direct to the premises. For the properties in Allensmore that have not been covered by the previous stages (i.e. Church Road, Green Farm Lane and part of the A465) this was a major delay with the start in this area then scheduled for Q3 2021. Fastershire has now announced that this deployment is under review with the suspicion that Gigaclear may no longer proceed with it. For more information see the Broadband section.
