Help improve the road layout on the A40 at Raglan to prevent further accidents

On June 20th 2017 a serious accident occurred after a driver pulled out of Groesenon Road (Frank Sutton Rd) to cross the A40 to Raglan and in to the path of a driver travelling at approximately 65mph along the dual carriageway towards the A449. Whilst the driver of the first vehicle was clearly at fault this type of incident is easily preventable with a changed road layout incorporating traffic lights or a roundabout.

Thankfully both drivers survived the collision due to the excellent safety features in each of their cars. Both spent time in hospital due to injuries sustained in the incident and this story could so easily have had a more sombre ending.

A petition has been started to call on the National Assembly for Wales to make an urgent review of the road layout in the interests of the many walkers, cyclists and drivers whose lives are put at risk by this junction each day.

5000 signatures are required, which is unfair for such a small community so as well as signing the petition yourself please ask your partners, parents, grandparents and everyone you know to sign!

Church Repairs

We have now completed the Bat Survey. There are bats in the Church and we will need a Licence from Natural Resources Wales to enable us to proceed with the Works.

NRW will not process our Application until we have a Faculty- Listed Building Consent for Churches- which is obtained from the Diocesan Office.

We have lodged our application for this and hope that it will be granted on 17 th. July.

To keep things moving we are now inviting tenders for the Contract to carry out the works.

The NRW may impose conditions which may restrict working periods and/ or specify additional work but hopefully this will not adversely affect the progress of the project.

We will keep you posted.
