Installation of Cattle Grids

Gloucestershire County Council have notified us that works will be carried out in the new year to help restrict cattle movements from the common. They have given us the following information. The place names each carry a link to a map of the cattle grid location. They have notified us that these roads will be completely closed during the works:

Currently the contractors do not have a definite programme of work as the changeover from one grid to the next depends on various elements of work being done in parallel. The Contractors would expect at worse to complete three grids within 12 weeks total, allowing for final clearance, making good adjacent lands etc. 

Weighbridge January 12th to February 9th
Swells Hill February 2nd to March 9th
Giddynap Lane February 16th to March 23rd

If time allows The Street will be programmed in to start before the end of February and complete before the end of March.
