Community Council Minutes - February 2020

Draft Minutes Fossoway and District Community Council
4th February 2020, Carnbo Village Hall

Attending: Community Cllrs Sarah Bruce-Jones, Trudy Duffy, Carol Farquhar, Carole Haigh, Michael Haigh and Graham Pye; P&K Cllrs Mike Barnacle, Callum Purves, Willie Robertson and Richard Watters; Seven Members of the Public (MoP).
Apologies: Community Cllrs Angus Cheape and Rob Young.
Declarations of Interest: None.

Police report: There were no incidents to note in our area since the last CC Meeting from the Commander’s Reports received via Perth and Kinross Community Watch. Two trays of rolls were recently stolen from outside the Crook of Devon shop.
No officer was present, but Trudy will ask them to come in future, since they are holding Surgeries elsewhere.
Cllr Cheape reported that the Police have been carrying out speed checks on the A977 and A91, and has spoken to the Officers involved.

Minutes of the previous meeting: The minutes of the previous meeting were signed off without amendment.

Matters Arising
Rumbling Bridge Gorge Bridge: CCllr Duffy reported that there will be another site meeting, probably at 10am on the 15th February, to ensure that the new design which increases the clearance above high water level is acceptable. CCllr Bruce-Jones suggested that we ask the local school children to hold a competition to name the bridge. A MoP asked about access for wheelchair users, and although this is intended to be part of the design, as far as possible, there may still be steps on one side – Cllr Barnacle will ask PKC’s Greenspace team if they can help.

Hydro Scheme Fund: There are hardly any applications from this area to both this and several other funds. The Hydro fund have three applications under examination at present, details should be available next month.

Powmill in Bloom: CCllr Farquhar reported that judging for this year’s Well Kept Village competition will be held in March. The group members are meeting to plan their preparations. An application has been made for a grant to fund equipment to be used by the group.

Crook & Drum Growing Together: CCllr Duffy reports that the group is also preparing for the Well Kept Village competition. In the summer they are planning to provide a planted up tub or hanging basket to every house on the main street – hopefully to then be maintained by the householder.

Fossoway Area Transport/DRT: Cllr Barnacle reported that there was a PKC wide transport forum on 16th January. Cllr Barnacle will set up another local meeting in February; this CC will be represented by CCllrs Farquhar and Michael Haigh.

Crook Moss Travellers Site: Cllr Barnacle, CCllr Farquhar and Mr and Mrs McGregor from the Traveller’s Site, together with representatives from the Police, PKC’s Planning and Community Liaison departments and SEPA attended a meeting on 14th January. The planners have two enforcement issues outstanding, one for drainage connection now proposed to be done by March. Cllr Barnacle is trying to co-ordinate the contractor to improve the chances of successful completion. There doesn’t seem to be much progress on the other enforcement issue. The Police were unable to throw any light on the problem currently in the hands of the CID; meanwhile the site is not currently occupied by any residents.

LDP2: The Supplementary Guidance on Landscape doesn’t include designation of Devon Gorge and the Cleish Hills; Cllr Barnacle has proposed an amendment to include them but this was defeated, however Cllr Barnacle is continuing with his efforts, and has some support from PKC’s CEO.

Blairingone War Memorial: A Listed Building application (19/01944/LBC) has been made and supported by this CC.

Vegetation on Aldie Road: Cllr Barnacle will ask for the ditches to be cleared.

Cemetery Extension: The Church is keen to progress this development, but it is currently held up pending identification of who would lease the land from the Church. Cllr Barnacle plans to drive creation of a Community Trust to resolve this. Other people expressed an interest in being part of the Trust.

Matters Arising with no update since last meeting:
A977 Mitigation, Ivy Cottage Powmill and Powmill Play Park: No information at present.

New Business:
Fossoway Gathering: Will be held on Saturday 23rd May, CCllr Duffy appealed for volunteers to help with preparation and on the day, details on the Gathering’s Facebook page. A fund raising whisky tasting event will take place on the 22nd February in the Crook of Devon Hall.

Dunning Glen Forestry: A large area of land (approximately 1000 hectares/2500 acres), known as Coulshill Shoot, near Auchterarder has been acquired by the pension fund of one of the electricity companies. They intend to create a new woodland on the site, which is to the north-east of the Green Knowes wind farm. The developers expect to publish concept design proposals shortly. The woodland is expected to be mostly coniferous, but include significant open spaces and native broadleaves.

Great British Spring Clean: will be held between 20th March and 13th April, although Scotland has its own campaign in April and May, see https://www.keepscotlandbeautiful.org/local-environmental-quality/clean-up-scotland/spring-clean-2020/ for details.

Community Council Business
Sports Hub: CCllr Farquhar was unable to attend the last meeting, but has received the minutes.
Treasurer: The annual top-up grant of £351.24 from PKC has been received.

P&K Councillors’ Reports
Willie Robertson: The Community Investment Fund was approached to finance equipment for Community Speedwatch but this was turned down, so another source of funding is being sought. Fly tipping appears to be increasing, all should keep an eye open and note registration numbers of culprits and pass them to the Police. The Budget process in currently in progress.

Mike Barnacle and Callum Purves: Nothing not already described above.

Richard Watters: The scheme to finance Wi-Fi provision in Village Halls is well under way. A Climate Change Partnership between the Council and Businesses is to be set up – it would be good if CCs were also involved.

Planning Matters
19/02066/FLL Erection of a dwelling house (plot 1) at Land 30 metres south of Crook of Devon House, Main Street, Crook of Devon. This application only arrived on the afternoon of the last meeting so was subsequently discussed by email. The CC did not comment.

20/00073/IPL Renewal of permission 17/00029/IPL (Erection of a dwelling house (in principle)) at Land 50 metres north of Craighead House, Drum. No CC Comment

20/00074/IPL Renewal of permission 17/00947/IPL Erection of a dwelling house (in principle) at Land 60 metres north-west of Craighead House, Drum. No CC Comment

Decided Applications
19/01881/IPL Residential development (in principle) Land 80 metres north-east of Powmill Milk Bar, Powmill. The Application was refused – the CC had objected.

19/01651/IPL Renewal of permission 16/01450/IPL (Erection of a dwelling house) (in principle) Land 30 metres north-west of Firs of Viewfield, Drum. Approved – the CC did not comment.

19/01921/FLL Alteration and extension to dwelling house and formation of raised decking area (in part retrospect) 3 Riverside Lodges, Main Street, Crook of Devon, Kinross, KY13 0UQ. Approved – the CC did not comment.

19/01539/FLL Erection of four dwelling houses at Land 30 metres south of Easter Muirhead Bothy Blairingone. The CC had objected to this application, and the planning department responded to our objection, however not all of their responses are satisfactory: The CC sought clarity on the ownership of the land, however it’s still not clear who the existing conditions will be held against. Clearly Scottish Water must have infrastructure in this area, otherwise there would be no supply, and hence the concerns expressed by neighbours are relevant.

Correspondence - All correspondence was available for viewing: The CC has been invited to a consultation on Future Policy Development of Sexual Entertainment Venues, as licensing of these venues has been devolved from the Scottish Government to Local Authorities. Comments can be sent to ku.vog.ckp|gnisnecilcivic#ku.vog.ckp|gnisnecilcivic.

The proposed 40mph limits at Crook of Devon and Blairingone described last month are likely to go ahead following support from this CC.

AOCB: A MoP asked about the continuing problem with rubbish at the Devonshaw quarry. Cllr Barnacle has made attempts to contact the owner but with no success, and in the absence of such contact there is little that can be done.
Following the planned closure in the Kinross branch of the TSB in May, closure of the Bank of Scotland branch in Kinross has now also been announced. This will mean that there are no permanent bank branches anywhere in Kinross-shire, with only two ATMs outside premises. The CC will write to our MP asking for action to preserve branches in the area.

Community Council Minutes - January 2020

Draft Minutes Fossoway and District Community Council
7th January 2020, Fossoway Primary School

Attending: Community Cllrs Sarah Bruce-Jones, Angus Cheape, Trudy Duffy, Carol Farquhar, Carole Haigh, Michael Haigh, Graham Pye and Rob Young; P&K Cllrs Mike Barnacle and Callum Purves; Seven Members of the Public (MoP).
Apologies: P&K Cllrs Willie Robertson and Richard Watters.
Declarations of Interest: CCllr Young declared an interest in planning application 19/01826.

Police report: There was one incident to note in our area since the last CC Meeting from the Commander’s Reports received via Perth and Kinross Community Watch: Between 12:30pm and 1:10pm, Saturday 7th December, a wallet and fleece were stolen from a Kia Sorento parked in Vicars Bridge Road, Blairingone.

A MoP reported excessive speed of vehicles through Powmill. There was general agreement that installing 100 metre countdown markers leading up to the 30mph limit from the Crook of Devon direction would help. Cllr Barnacle will investigate if this could be done.

Cllr Barnacle has asked Inspector Kat Thompson of Police Scotland for a meeting to discuss local issues.

Minutes of the previous meeting: The minutes of the previous meeting were signed off without amendment.

Matters Arising
Rumbling Bridge Gorge Bridge: George Lawrie and other members of the TRACKS group have conducted a detailed site visit to assess water levels and produced a design that should ensure the bridge is safe from any future flooding. SEPA’s requirement is for there to be least 600mm clearance above their 1 in 200 flood level, and this design comfortably exceeds that. The bridge would have one span of 24 metres and one of 6 to 9 metres. The North landing point of the bridge would be in line with the gate. Copies of the proposed plan were circulated amongst those present.
Representatives of the Army Reserves have visited the site and they have subsequently expressed an interest in being involved in the project, but without committing to a timescale at this stage, although it would probably be a year away. This would approximately halve the construction costs.
SEPA believe that the proximity to the old site would remove the need to submit a planning application, although this is not the view of the TRACKS team. It would also be necessary to do a tree survey upstream of the bridge to check for any potential fallers.
Full costs (if the Army were not involved) would be £75-80k. TRACKS propose to construct a three car parking area which would be used for site office during construction.
The next step is to organise a meeting with the CC and other interested parties to agree the proposed site, followed by release of funds to fund structural engineer’s calculations of foundations, creation of drawings, submission of planning application, etc. Additionally, the landowners need to be consulted and their agreement obtained.
In response to a question, George answered that disabled access would be OK from the North side, and across bridge but it would of necessity be difficult on the Crook of Devon bank as there are steps. Cllr Barnacle suggested that an approach should be made to PKC’s Community Greenspace group to see if they can do something about the steps, hence making the bridge and paths generally accessible.

Powmill in Bloom: In November the group reported that PKC were not cutting the verges in Powmill. Cllr Watters investigated this, but was told that the verges are too narrow to be cut safely. CCllr Farquhar reported that the group has recently planted ten and half thousand bulbs!

Powmill Play Park: CCllr Farquhar reported that there is new equipment installed, and the site looks very promising as work continues.

Crook & Drum Growing Together: In November, Amanda James, chair of the group had contacted the CC requesting assistance with progressing planned work at the corner of West Crook Way. Cllr Watters took an action to look into this and as a result PKC’s Greenspace team met the Bloom group on 22nd November and the work has now been done.

Fossoway Area Transport/DRT: Cllr Barnacle reported that there have been two meetings to discuss this, but both were very poorly attended. There is a PKC wide transport forum on 16th January at LLCC. Cllr Barnacle aims to set up another local meeting in February.

A977 Mitigation: Cllr Barnacle noted that there’s still over £200k of identified projects to be executed, including B9097 realignment in February, School Road junction in March, and Gateway Features and Drum Signalisation in July. CCllr Duffy asked the Councillors how potholes were supposed to be fixed – Cllr Purves replied that the process is that they should be done properly by cutting out and filling, but urgent ones might be fixed temporarily.

Crook Moss Travellers Site: Cllr Barnacle, CCllr Farquhar and Mr and Mrs McGregor from the Traveller’s Site, had an informal meeting before Xmas – They decided that it would be useful to have an official meeting, which will be held at 10am on 14th January at 2 High Street, Perth, including Cllr Barnacle, CCllr Farquhar and the McGregors along with representatives from the police, PKC’s planning department and SEPA. The intention is to discuss outstanding planning issues and to try to address some aspects of the site’s appearance. It may be possible to explore the potential conversion of the site from a traveller’s site into an affordable housing site.

Blairingone War Memorial: An LBC application (19/01944/LBC) has been made by Profile Projects. See below.

Matters Arising with no update since last meeting:
Vegetation on Aldie Road, Cemetery Extension and Ivy Cottage Powmill : No information at present.

New Business:
Bartholomew McLaughlin: The CC was contacted by a member of the Shetland Community Trust, who is researching the history of Bartholomew McLaughlin, also known as Bert McLaughlin, who was the minister of Blairingone Church from 1939 to 1958. The Trust would be interested to hear from anyone who knows anything about Mr McLaughlin. MoPs suggested several locals who might know of him, and they will be contacted.
Proposed 40mph Speed Limits on A977: PKC intend to create two new sections of 40mph limit: (1) East of bend after Blairingone, where 30mph limit ends, to just past Craigend junction. (2) West of Crook of Devon, from end of existing 30mph limit to just past Briglands Farm access. Comments were needed by 6th December, however as the CC was not constituted at that time it was not possible for us to comment. However it was thought very likely that this would meet with general approval, and hence the previous CC members did not think it necessary to ask for an extension to the comment period.

Community Council Business
CCllr Cheape attended a meeting of the Kinross-shire fund on the 2nd December – two grants were made to other areas, but CCllr Cheape pointed out that the fund has a healthy balance available for applications. CCllr Duffy reminded the meeting that other sources of funding are available.
CCllr Farquhar said there was to be a meeting of the Sports Hub on 9th January but she was unable to attend.
CC Political Impartiality: During the run-up to the last General election the CC posted an announcement of a public meeting by one of the candidates on our Facebook page. We were advised by PKC’s Community Planning Policy Team Leader that this could be considered to be an endorsement of that party and it should be removed. On seeking further clarification from PKC it was agreed that events such as hustings open to all parties could be advertised by the CC, and after an election notification of surgeries of sitting Members would also be acceptable.

P&K Councillors’ Reports
Callum Purves: Cllr Purves noted that annual budget process has started, although the current difficulties with the timing of the Westminster budget may cause some problems.
Mike Barnacle: Cllr Barnacle has been discussing with other members a proposal to review the budget in two stages, firstly to hear proposals from the Officers, and then a week later vote on them, which would allow time for sensible discussion. He believes that there may be a fairly wide degree of support for this idea.
The Local Councillors wrote to the Scottish Minister about the conduct of the Local Plan review by the Reporter. Unfortunately the response failed to address any of the stated issues.
Cllr Barnacle distributed letters to 100 residents of Blairingone to see if there was any enthusiasm for acquiring the school for the community. Regrettably there were only three replies. Consequently it appears there is no local interest in retaining the building, so PKC can choose to dispose of it.

Planning Matters
19/01760/FLL Erection of a dwelling house and garage at land 50 metres south-west of Mitchell House, Main Street, Crook of Devon. No CC Comment.

19/01826/FLL Demolition of agricultural buildings, erection of a dwelling house and extension to stable at land 20 metres north-west of Coach House, Tullibole Mill Farm, Crook of Devon No CC Comment

19/01881/IPL Residential development (in principle) at Land 80 metres north-east of Powmill Milk Bar. The CC will object on grounds of being outside LDP2, flood risk and road capacity.
Several MoPs present at the meeting had also objected to this proposal. Cllr Barnacle had spoken to the planners and they are intending to refuse the application under their delegated powers, although there is still the possibility of the applicant appealing to the LRB. A MoP asked how they can prevent the applicant continuing to make applications to develop this land. Cllr Barnacle suggested that creating a Community Development Trust would definitively record the views of residents, and possibly enable the land to be acquired for the Community’s benefit.

19/01921/FLL Alteration and extension to dwelling house and formation of raised decking area (in part retrospect) 3 Riverside Lodges, Main Street, Crook of Devon. No CC comment.

19/01944/LBC Relocation of war memorial and associated works at Blairingone Church, Blairingone FK14 7NY. The CC will write in support of this application.

19/02066/FLL Erection of a dwelling house (plot 1) at Land 30 metres south of Crook of Devon House, Main Street, Crook of Devon. This application only arrived on the afternoon of the meeting so will be discussed by email.

Decided Applications
19/01512/FLL Alterations and extension to dwelling house and erection of replacement garage Smiddy, Main Street, Blairingone. Approved – The CC did not comment.

Appeals
19/00473/IPL / TCP/11/16(615) Residential development (in principle) at land 110 metres south-east of 3 Birkfield Park, Rumbling Bridge. Dismissed at 12th November LRB - The CC had objected to this application.

Correspondence - All correspondence was available for viewing: The CC received copies of some objections to application19/01881/IPL ; The Gannochy Trust are holding a fund raising roadshow between 9:30 and 11:30 on 16th January at Kinross Parish Church – see https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-funding-roadshow-event-5-kinross-tickets-82955978565 to book. There are also other locations.

AOCB: CCllr Duffy has information about creating a Community Development Trust – interested parties should contact her to start the process going. Cllr Barnacle has experience of, and some information, from other trusts.
A MoP suggested that as we no can longer hold meetings at Blairingone School that we are perhaps restricting our locations too much and we should consider holding meetings elsewhere. The CC welcomed proposals from anyone as to how we should best geographically distribute the eleven meetings each year, with the only restriction being that school premises are only available during term times.

Community Council Minutes - November 2019

Draft Minutes Fossoway and District Community Council
5th November 2019, Powmill Moubray Hall

Attending: Community Cllrs Carol Farquhar, Graham Pye (Chair) and Rob Young; P&K Cllr Richard Watters; Nine Members of the Public (MoP).
Apologies: CCllrs Sarah Bruce-Jones, Angus Cheape and Trudy Duffy; P&K Cllrs Mike Barnacle, Callum Purves and Willie Robertson.
Declarations of Interest: None.

Police report: There was one incident to note in our area since the last CC Meeting from the Commander’s Reports received via Perth and Kinross Community Watch: Between Sunday 13th and Tuesday 15th October a green Fiat car was scratched in St Serf's Place, Crook of Devon.

Minutes of the previous meeting: The minutes of the previous meeting were signed off without amendment.

Matters Arising
Rumbling Bridge Gorge Bridge: CCllr Duffy reported that George Lawrie indicated that the Army will probably be involved in the project which will have a significant positive impact on the costs. A costed plan should be available by the end of the year.

Powmill in Bloom: CCllr Farquhar reported that there is a problem with cutting of the road verges in Powmill, PKC claim that it is too dangerous beside the busy road even though they are cut in Crook and Drum. As a result the Bloom Group are doing it themselves. Cllr Watters agreed to look into this. Planting of bulbs continues.

Powmill Play Park: CCllr Farquhar reported that substantial ground work is now in progress, although no play equipment has yet been installed.

Crook & Drum Growing Together: Amanda James, chair of the group had contacted the CC requesting assistance with progressing planned work at the corner of West Crook Way. PKC’s Greenspace team, who own the bed behind the grass verge, have agreed to clear the bed and lay a membrane and bark. The Bloom group would then plant up the bed and maintain it in future – funds have already been raised for this purpose. Unfortunately there has been no progress by the Greenspace team, even though it was first requested at the start of 2019 to be done this financial year. Cllr Watters will ask the Greenspace team to move this item up their agenda.

Fossoway Area Transport/DRT: Cllr Barnacle convened a meeting, which CCllr Farquhar attended, but the turnout was very disappointing. He will try again to see if more people will take part.

Heart 200 Route: The CC had received an email from Robert Cairns of Heart 200 Scot Limited in response to this CC’s concern about lack of local consultation. He would be happy to meet the CC. Mr Cairns explained that Heart 200 is not another NC500 - it is essentially an online travel guide aimed at promoting the heart of Scotland - the circular route is simply a key to accessing this. There will be a Heart 200 Travel Guide in book form, written by Dr Tom Christie the author of the route on the website, coming out next year. Mr Cairns also pointed out that Heart 200 Scot Limited is a private limited company with a sole focus of promoting tourism in the heart of Scotland.

Crook Moss Travellers Site: CCllr Farquhar noted that they have been employing Ian McGregor, one of the travellers, to work in their garden and found them to be honest and hard working. Recently Mr McGregor’s caravan has had all the windows broken and vehicle driven dangerously at his wife. The Police are involved and prosecution is pending. CCllr Farquhar pointed out that this shows that are there are good people at the site too. Mr McGregor will be having a meeting with Cllr Barnacle and CCllr Farquhar to try and address some aspects of the site’s appearance. Cllr Watters asked if he could be at the meeting too.

Matters Arising with no update since last meeting:
A977 Mitigation, Blairingone War Memorial, Vegetation on Aldie Road, Cemetery Extension, Ivy Cottage Powmill: No information at present.

New Business:
Fossoway Gathering: There will be a Whisky Tasting fund raising event in the Hall on 30th November.

Community Council Business
No meetings attended this month.
CCllr Farquhar noted that there will be a meeting of the Sports Hub at the end of November.
CCllr Pye reported that the CC Accounts have been submitted, but won’t be processed until the end of the year as PKC’s Community Council Services department is busy with the General Election.

P&K Councillors’ Reports
Richard Watters: The Action Partnership’s second tranche of funding (£50k) has been postponed until mid January – applications for grants should be submitted before then. Each CC can send a representative to discuss the funding decisions. There is also a pot of £30k available for addressing inequalities and the Partnership is looking for representatives to decide how to distribute that. Finally, there is also a fund to put Wi-Fi in community buildings, e.g. halls, etc., which would finance the installation of the equipment and the first two years of running costs.

Planning Matters
19/01507/FLL Change of use, alterations from hotel (class 7) to dwelling house (class 9), installation of a ground source heat pump and associated works at Solsgirth House, Solsgirth, Dollar. No CC Comment.

19/01512/FLL Alterations and extension to dwelling house and erection of replacement garage at Smiddy, Main Street, Blairingone. No CC Comment.

19/01568/FLL Alterations to garage at Larch House, Carnbo. No CC Comment.

19/01643/FLL Alterations and extension to dwelling house at The Lodge, Blairhill, Rumbling Bridge. No CC Comment

19/01651/IPL Renewal of permission 16/01450/IPL (Erection of a dwelling house) (in principle) at land 30 metres north-west of Firs of Viewfield, Drum. No CC Comment.

19/01673/AML Erection of 10 dwelling houses with associated infrastructure and landscaping (approval of matters specified in conditions of 18/01855/IPL) at land 100 metres north-west of Schiehallion, Crook of Devon. Object on grounds of overdevelopment, no affordable housing, and inadequate local roads.

19/01539/FLL Erection of four dwelling houses at land 30 metres south of Easter Muirhead Bothy, Blairingone.
Firstly, the application form for this development was only added the day before this CC meeting, so consequently the CC will request an extension of the comment date.
Although this application appears to be only a change of design from the previously approved application, there is no indication that the previous planning conditions (road widening, landscaping) have been implemented and it appears that the ownership of this part of the development has changed. There were views from the MoP present that this application should be stopped altogether, however the CC believes that the most important thing is to ensure that the existing conditions should also be attached to this application and strenuous efforts made by PKC’s enforcement department to ensure they are implemented before this development takes place. The CC will record these views on the planning portal in due course.

Decided Applications
19/01355/FLL Alterations and extension to dwelling house and installation of a flue at Appin, Rumbling Bridge. Approved – The CC did not comment.

19/00962/FLL Alterations and extension to dwelling house, 34 West Crook Way, Crook of Devon, Kinross, KY13 0PH. Approved – The CC did not comment.

19/01346/FLL Erection of dwelling house at land 40 metres east of Hen Hurdle, Crook of Devon. Approved – The CC did not comment.

Appeals
19/00473/IPL Residential development (in principle) at land 110 metres south-east of 3 Birkfield Park, Rumbling Bridge. To be considered at 12th November LRB. The CC had objected to this application.

Dollar Equestrian Centre A number of MoPs attended the meeting and raised the issue of the lack of enforcement action against application 17/01337/FLL regarding the removal of the wooden stables from this site. The landowner has exhausted all avenues of appeal against the refusal of this application but has failed to remove them as required. PKC’s enforcement Officers have issued penalty notices but have stopped short of actually removing the stables themselves, believing that PKC would be unlikely to recover the cost of doing so from the landowner. Failure to enforce conditions of this nature establishes a dangerous precedent for other developments. The MoPs appealed to Cllr Watters for assistance, and he agreed to speak to Enforcement Officer Eddie Jordan.

Correspondence - All correspondence was available for viewing:
A notice was received from the Scouts regarding a Firework display and bonfire in Nine Acres on the 8th November.
PKC invite people to complete a survey (which closes on 15th November) about CCTV in Perth: https://consult.pkc.gov.uk/housing-environment/perth-city-public-space-cctv/consultation/
The A9 will be closed overnight (8:30pm to 6am) between Luncarty and A923 Dunkeld junction on 27th, 28th and 29th November to allow the next stage of the widening works to be carried out.

AOCB: None.
