Statement of information made available to the Parish Council in respect of the Relief road update 16/10/19
Due to yet more unforeseen problems, the contractors are now aiming for a mid-November or early December completion date.
Below is an overview of the issues, all of which are outside the contractor's control.
1) Airport issues
Due to security requirements there is a minimum distance required between the fence and the new road, also a minimum height of the fence above the road. The present construction does not comply to these requirements. A 'fix' is required that may include the need to raise the chain link fencing (distance and height) or possible replace with mesh weld fencing. As this is a security issue this will need CAA approval and to that end the lane nearest to the fence must remain closed. This means the lights will need to remain until that work is complete. More »
2) LCC issues
Park Lane/Back Lane
A drainage channel to take water run-off needs to be dug almost the length of the new road from the Park Lane roundabout down to the Back Lane roundabout to prevent the shrubbery being washed away.
The Park Lane junction with new roundabout requires the road levels sorting but that can't be done until relief road is open. Traffic lights will need to remain until that work is done.
Back Lane resurfacing is to take place next week. At that point the lights should be able to be taken down except when any additional work may be required.
3) Red Lining (Red Route)
LCC requires this to be done the length of the new road all in one go, hence the road can't be opened in its entirety until this is in place. Most of the new signage is available but some is still on order, hopefully available and in place soon.

East Midlands Airport has created a new scheme to help assist with Rogue Taxi parking within the villages.
Please report all taxi's that are parked in the village, waiting for arrivals, to firstname.lastname@example.org. With the following evidence: Date and time of the incident, Location, Vehicle registration (essential) and if possible a photograph to include the vehicle registration
The idea is that if the taxi is reported EMA will write to the person registered to the vehicle asking them politely not to park in the surrounding villages, if the same car does it again it will be issued a final warning and the third attempt will BAN that car from entering the airport through ANPR. More »
Following on from a recent meeting with LCC to talk about the "Rogue Taxi scheme", the LCC asked that the parishes consulted with the community in terms of associated parking issues in the villages.
If you have any comments, suggestions, that might be related to airport parking and how this might be improved in the villages, then please submit your concerns and information for further discussion with the Parish Councils and Airport.
Options for permit parking - Castle Donington does not meet the criteria, so it would not be permitted. Some suggested ideas would have more of a detrimental effect of residents and business (time-limited), however, there may be some options that have yet to be discussed and considered.
Please submit these to Admin@cdpc.org.uk by 28 October 2019. » Less

St Edwards Church Wall
Work required to repoint a small section of the wall along Clapgun Street that was hit by a lorry recently. (Probably 6-10 feet area).
The wall is in the conservation area, and as such any re-pointing work needs to be of the correct type of mortar/finish etc.
Please contact the Parish Council if you are interested in quoting for this work.
