The villages of Mancetter
and Ridge Lane
The Parish Council has now moved the website to a more modern system. During the coming weeks the content will be checked and any additions or changes will be made.
Mancetter Parish Neighbourhood Plan Adopted
On the 7th September 2017 the Mancetter Parish Neighbourhood Plan went to Referendum. This has now been formally adopted as a document in law that will be used by North Warwickshire Borough Council who are the Planning Authority to influence future decision making concerning the villages of Mancetter and Ridge Lane.
The Parish Council would like to thank everyone for their involvement and taking time out to vote. We will now be monitoring how the plan will shape the outlook of our Parish in the years to come.
A5 Road Works July to September 2020
This scheme covers the section of the A5 Watling Street between the Mancetter Island and Higham Roundabout, a 3.7 mile stretch of carriageway. The essential maintenance programme will help improve safety on this important route by delivering a complete resurfacing of the carriageway, including laying new road markings and High Friction Surfacing (anti-skid) at junctions as well as vegetation and drainage clearance. The work will commence on 6 July 2020 and will end during October 2020.
During the first two weeks there will be re-surfacing and working in the areas between Mancetter (Atherstone) Roundabout and the Longabout, (Redgate roundabout with the A444). This will involve night time closures.
Updated report for weeks commencing 3rd and 10th August.
Speeding in Mancetter and Ridge Lane
Are you worried about the volume of traffic and the speed at which vehicles travel through our villages? More lorries; more cars; more vehicles not adhering to speed limits.
Do you feel that you are at risk when you are crossing the road, due to the speed of vehicles?
We have the opportunity to work with other agencies to set up a Community Speed Watch Team. We can then collect information to support our case for traffic calming. Do you have a few hours to spare to join this team? Leave your name and contact details with the Parish Clerk by email or a telephone message if you are not able to attend the meeting publicised above. We will be in touch when we have enough people to progress the team.
