Flood works

We are pleased that the the recent flood works in the town centre have helped with drainage during this very wet weather. We had a small team of NTC Councillors and staff working on this project and we had invaluable collaboration with the GCC Drainage project. We were able to affect the scope of the project and the timing of the works to reduce the impact o the town. GCC, SDC and NTC worked together on this project; the disruption before Christmas is paying off now. 

We continue to have close contact with the GCC Drainage project, and regular checks are being carried out.

The Nitty Gritty...

Nailsworth residents do an excellent job helping each other out by gritting pavements and footpaths. However, please remember to use the grit sparingly (it works better that way) and to be kind to your neighbours: please don’t use the grit to clear your own drive or path and try to share it around your street wherever the ice is the worst.

Nailsworth Town Council’s Groundsman grits the pavements in the centre of town to help keep pedestrians moving.

Gloucestershire County Council are responsible for gritting the roads. Grit bins are filled by GCC before each winter season. The salt in the bins is intended for use on the public highway only, please do not use grit from these bins to clear your own driveways or paths as there are limited supplies. Bins are located where they are for a specific reason. To report an empty grit bin please contact GCC via their website: or phone them on 01452 425 000.

Slow down for a smile!

Jan 21 2021 P1210015 1.jpgThe Town Council has had two Speed Indicator Device Signs installed. One of these is near Egypt Mill, on the A46 and one on Nympsfield Road towards the Youth Club. NTC has been working with the Police and Crime Commissioner and Gloucestershire County Council to obtain and fit the SIDS.

The signs give you a happy smile if you are driving with the speed limit, and frown if you are not. The signs also store data, so that speed statistics can be analysed over time.
