A1 Noise and Earthworks

Anyone else noticed the increase in traffic noise from the A1 since the "landscaping" started?
There is a pattern emerging here.  Whilst the Great Park houses are being built and sold, large piles of soil have been placed between them and the A1, which is  a very noisy road with no low noise surface or speed limit which would make it quieter.

Road Safety Campaign

We have repeatedly raised concerns about road safety on Roseden Way and will continue our campaign on this as we feel strongly that it is only a matter of time before there is an injury or fatality.  We have asked for:

Lock up your Driveways and Parking Bays!!

Advance notice of a potentially large meeting at Brunton First School on Wednesday 22nd at 7.00pm.
To help jog your memory here is something for you - try singing it to "Teddy Bears Picnic"!
If you go out to the shops tonight prepare for a very long drive,
If you come home from the shops tonight you'd better be ready and wise,
For every parent that ever there was will park not ride, Because
Tonights the night of the PTA meeting!

Landscaping Work

Earth movers are having a great time in front of Prendwick Avenue!  We are informed by the council that this is planned landscaping, to be followed by a final configuration of the noise bunds.  Any problems with dust or noise outside normal working hours please report it.  We do not have a definitive plan for the landscaping, but are told the central area will be wild flower and there should be some trees too. The mown strip near the footpath is to remain.

What is the latest time you would use the GPCC (except at weekends)?
