June Road Closure in Oliver's Battery

Oliver's Battery Parish Council has decided to re-surface the section of Compton Way between Oliver's Battery Gardens and and Priors Way. This is the very rough stretch leading down to the Recreation Ground and is technically not a road at all but a bridleway. Work is expected to start in June and take a couple of weeks.

Here is the road closure notice from Hampshire County Council:



NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Hampshire County Council proposes to make an Order to allow for works in connection with repairs to the surface of the right of way to be undertaken, as follows:

ROAD TO BE CLOSED: Part of Oliver’s Battery Bridleway 9 between its junction with Priors Way and its junction with Oliver’s Battery Gardens.


PERIOD OF CLOSURE: From 11 June for a period of one month or until completion of the works whichever is sooner.

Reasonable facilities will be provided to allow access to adjacent premises while the work is being carried out.

If you have any queries regarding the above please contact the Rights of Way Office, tel: 01962 846981 on behalf of the Director of Recreation and Heritage (responsible for Rights of Way) OR Democratic Services, Chief Executives Department, tel: 01962 847354 on behalf of the Head of Corporate and Legal Services.

Despite what it says, there is an alternative route - Priors Way!

Winchester Mayfest Pics

Winchester Mayfest took place on Saturday. A new (I think) name for Winchester's annual Folk Festival. Great fun and the city was really buzzing all day. Here are a few more pics for anyone who missed it.

The Winchester Result

Liberal Democrats gained 1 from Conservatives (Compton & Otterbourne) and 2 from Labour (St Luke and St John).
Conservatives gained 1 from Liberal Democrats (Owslebury & Curdridge).

New council: C 29, LD 23, Ind 4, Lab 1

So the Tories retain overall control by one seat, having scraped home in Whiteley by 19 votes. From a Lib Dem perspective a great improvement on last year and a firm base for next year's elections. All 3 of the Lib Dem gains were in wards within the boundary of the new Winchester parliamentary seat, so good news for our prospective candidate, Martin Tod, too.

Winchester counting this morning

The Winchester local election count is taking place this morning and the council will be updating the results live on their website. Look here for the latest news.
