Winter Road Sweeping and Drain Cleaning arrangements - 10th and 11th December 9am - 5pm.

On Tuesday 10th and Wednesday 11th December between 9am and 5pm, Brookings Contractors will be working in the village to sweep the roads and clear the drains and gullies to help minimise the risk of flooding over winter. They will also be clearing out the silt from the Stone Trough on the corner of Carr Lane and stream at the Bottom of Blacksmiths Hill.

So that the contractors have full access to the roadsides and drains, please can all parishioners and visitors arrange for their cars to be parked off the roads, either:

  • On their own, or neighbours driveways, (with permission).
  • At the park and walk opposite the campsite.
  • For residents who are less mobile, the Field Centre have kindly offered the use of their car park over this period.

To ensure the clean can be as effective as possible, please can we ask all parishioners to check outside their property boundary and remove any overgrown weeds covering highway gullies and waterways so that these can be cleaned and swept properly.

On behalf of Slapton Parish Council we apologise for any inconvenience during this period and to thank you all for your
co-operation and support whilst this essential work takes place.

Julie Hinder, Chair, Slapton Parish Council.
