Brackley Community Hospital

An update from Caryl Billingham MBE who is the Chairman of the Brackley Community Hospital 2020 Trust which has been formed in respect of the new community hospital in Brackley which is currently under construction.

The charity, which is called Brackley Community Hospital 2020 Trust and is registered with the Charity Commission (number 1185445), will essentially have a strategic role in managing the publicly raised funds which will go towards the acquisition of additional equipment over and above that which is deemed essential by the NHS for a facility of its size and with its remit. The Trustees are also actively seeking potential funds from many other charitable sources.

The hospital and all the NHS facilities within it will benefit not only the residents of Brackley but also those of the surrounding villages – whether in Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire or Buckinghamshire – whose population are served by the GP surgeries in Brackley.

Oil substance found in Croughton sewage treatment plant

Posted: Wed, 22 Jan 2020 09:20 by Ann Le Druillenec

the Thames Water reports that, for the second time in as many months, a substance of oil/heating oil has come through the sewer network in Croughton and ended up at the sewage treatment works. The effect is to knock out the biological treatment process at site. Thames Water attended the treatment works on 21st January 2020 to deal with the problem.

Thames Water is concerned to make sure such incidents do not recur. Such issues can be resolved, once the source of the problem has been identified, by rectifying and bunding the site from which the substance was lost. More »

Anyone who is aware that they have a leak of a non-sewage waste product into the sewer network are asked to contact Thames Water direct on 0800 316 9800 to enable Thames Water to expeditiously manage and resolve the situation much more quickly.

Thank you. » Less

Proposal for double yellow lines along the High Street to the east of the School

Posted: Wed, 04 Dec 2019 10:32 by Ann Le Druillenec

Subsequent to the Parish Council Meeting on 11th November 2019 the Parish Council was informed that the application for Double Yellow Lines along the section of the High Street to the east of the School had been turned down. The proposal was set against the criteria and policies that are used by Northamptonshire Highways to assess parking restrictions. A site visit was made by the Parking and Traffic Orders Team at Northants Highways who considered a number of factors, including location, parking density, highway impact, accidents and local needs and support, as well as enforcement issues. The observations made by the Team contributed to the conclusion not to take the request for DYL further. More »

Thank you to everyone who responded to the consultation on the proposal following notice of it in the September and October 2019 issues of Croughton News. » Less
