Traffic Data:

Posted: Tue, 11 Dec 2018 16:59 by Trevor Davies

Data collected between January 2012, when reporting began, and August 2018, the most recent download, shows that the volume of traffic entering the village from both Blenheim and Park End has increased significantly. In August this year, when the Farthinghoe Road was closed, the average increase in vehicles over the previous August was 6%. This equates to an additional 4,739 vehicles travelling eastbound from Blenheim and 5,874 extra vehicles heading in the opposite direction from Park End. More »

Analysis of the data on traffic speeds suggests that approx. 850 vehicles per day travel faster than 30mph as they enter Blenheim, although vehicle speeds have been decreasing over time, more noticeably for vehicles travelling at over 45mph.

Figures for Park End show that between January and August this year on average 2.7% of vehicles exceeded 35mph, with the majority of those travelling below 40 mph.

The Parish Council is grateful to Mrs Margaret Bennett for her work in this field. » Less

Government Reform:

Posted: Tue, 11 Dec 2018 16:58 by Trevor Davies

Principal Councils are working on the assumption that the Government will approve the proposal to create a new unitary authority for West Northants (and with it abolish South Northants, Daventry District, Northampton Borough and Northamptonshire County Councils) and that there will be a smooth launch of the new Council in April 2020. There may be an impact on the scheduled parish elections next year but to date this is unknown. More information on this major reorganisation is posted on www.southnorthants.gov.uk/lgr
