Northamptonshire Highways will carry out carriageway repairs along the A43. To undertake these repairs safely the road will be closed for one night on the 18th March between 8pm and 6am.
A plan showing the closure and diversion can be viewed here https://roadworks.org?tm=112718105
There will be gas works between Moulton and Holcot starting 7 March.
The work is for 6 weeks, probably with no disruption in Holcot for 3 weeks as they’re starting in Moulton, then they will be here in the village for around 3 weeks. Two way traffic lights will be in place.
There will also be a big orange container on the left of the last properties going out of Holcot on Moulton Rd.
All residents should receive letters about the works and there will be a customer liaison officer knocking on doors.
Although many Parishioners have complimented Gigaclear’s contractors on the courtesy and helpfulness of the workers during the main installation works, there has been some concern about the state of many of the grass verges now that they appear to have left the village.
The Parish Council therefore organised a joint-inspection with representatives of both Northants Highways and the contractors. We are pleased to be able to reassure Parishioners that together we drew-up a full list of all the locations that aren’t yet up to standard, and we’re now working to agree on what action is needed at each location.
The vast majority will be dealt with by raking-over and an application of grass seed, probably during March.
To give the grass a chance to grow, they’ve suggested that residents ask their families, visitors and neighbours to avoid walking, and driving or parking vehicles, on those re-seeded areas for as long as possible after the seed has been applied.
If you identify a streetlight that has failed, please let Lisa the clerk know.

Our community project to improve the playing field and it’s equipment is moving forwards. However, the Friends of Holcot Playing Field group are asking for further volunteers to help.
If you can spare some time to help out, please contact Lisa (firstname.lastname@example.org). It’s a great way of helping out the community, meeting people and supporting the Parish’s families.
