Further to my message of a fortnight ago, I can now confirm that no election has been requested.

Consequently we would like to make the co-option at the next Parish Council meeting (on 15 August).

If you would like to serve your community as a Parish Councillor, please provide a short (around a half page) statement of “why I would like to be a Parish Councillor” emailed to Ruby before 14 August.

If you would like to have a chat about the role of Parish Councillor, please contact me (07802 416704) or any Councillor.

HGV Traffic Survey- Thursday 9th June

SAVE THE DATE This will be a full day survey 7.00am to 7.00pm

Holcot sits within a 7.5t weight limit area, meaning that the only vehicles over this weight limit allowed are those making a delivery or receiving goods from within the weight limit area.

Unfortunately this weight restriction continues to be broken by some hauliers and truck drivers, this was evidenced by a recent survey undertaken by the Parish Council over a month but taken at different times of the day. This data has been provided to the police who are responsible for the policing of this weight restriction, however no noticeable reduction to this unauthorised traffic has occurred. The Parish Council has decided to provide further information regarding the continuing breach of the regulations by undertaking a whole day’s survey. 

The HGV traffic causes pollution, damage to parish properties close to the affected roads, damage to verges and serious congestion when these Juggernauts attempt to utilise our narrow roads as well as danger to Pedestrians. The surrounding areas to Holcot are being significantly developed and unless action is taken the situation is only going to get worse.?

If you would like to help by giving up an hour of your time, please contact Cllr Chris Bailey.

Email:      Tel :  07970 702021

The results of the survey will be presented to Northants Police and will be available on the parish council website
