Vegetation clearance has also begun in several areas and this will be continuing over the next few weeks and months. We are currently notifying residents who may be impacted by this. Much of the work required for the project will be carried out at night in order to minimise disruption to motorway traffic. Construction is being carried out under the Development Consent Order granted by the Secretary of State for Transport in September 2016 and with local consent under Section 61 of the Control of Pollution Act 1974, with notifications going to residents living near areas where potentially noisy works are planned.

Parish Council owned Grit Bins:

There are a number of grit bins provided by the parish council within the parish of Burghfield. The salt / grit in the bins is for use within the community on public paths, pavements and roads. The salt is not for private use on driveways or garden paths.

Anyone can use the salt to put on the roads or pavements. This can be particularly useful for example, to ‘join up’ salting from the main road carried out by District Council salting vehicles – to smaller access roads or on the pavements to the local school. One tablespoon of salt (20 grams) is sufficient to treat one square metre of road / pavement surface. Please use the salt carefully – overuse will result in it being used up too quickly.

The bins are scheduled to be filled each autumn by West Berkshire Council , however if a bin near you is empty, please report this to the parish clerk as soon as possible.
