South Gloucestershire Council Non-Intrusive survey along Gipsy Patch Lane, Little Stoke


South Gloucestershire Council have advised that survey work will begin on Monday 26th June and last for two weeks.  This survey work is being undertaken to help develop the plans for the Cribbs Patchway MetroBus Extension (CPME).  The work will be located between Station Road and the Gipsy Patch Lane/Hatchet Road Roundabout (see attached plan for survey extents).


The work will involve Ground Penetrating Radar equipment to scan the road.  Radar waves will go through the ground and identify where underground utilities, such as gas and water pipes, are located.  No digging will be involved.  The equipment that will be used is not noisy, so any disturbance to local residents will be minimal.


Some of the survey area is on verges and not on carriageway and this will be undertaken during the day, which is anticipated to take seven working days.  The rest of the survey work will be on the carriageway so this will then be undertaken at night for 3 to 4 nights. 


The work in the carriageway has been planned to take place when it will cause the least disruption and will therefore be carried out overnight during weeknights between 7.30pm and 5am.  There will be a requirement to close one lane at a time to undertake the survey and will therefore place temporary traffic lights to carry out the survey work during the above times only.  Vehicles will still be able to travel in both directions but will be controlled by the traffic lights.


Please note that the full weekend closures that we previously wrote to local residents about are still planned to go ahead but they have had to be postponed. As soon as those dates are confirmed we will contact you.

Joint Local Access Forum (JLAF)

The JLAF is a statutory body set up to provide advice to public bodies on public rights of way and access issues in South Gloucestershire, Bath & North East Somerset and Bristol.  The JLAF meets three times per year and is comprised of 22 volunteers representing a balance of ‘landowning’, ‘user’ and ‘other’ interests. 

Any members of the Parish Council or any of your parishioners are very welcome to apply to join the JLAF.  I have attached an application form and other relevant information, including the Terms of Reference of the JLAF.  There is more information about the JLAF and details of past meetings on the internet at aim to select members from their written applications so applicants are encouraged to give as much information as they can about themselves, their interest in rights of way and access to the outdoors.  To be considered for membership this year the deadline for receipt of applications is 9am on Friday 12 May 2017.
