Update to Massive increase in Heavy Goods Traffic destined for Scotton driving through Burton Leonard.

I received a telephone call earlier today from North Yorkshire Police Chief Constable’s Office. He informed me that due to a number of complaints and near misses reported on the roads from the A61 into Burton Leonard (Station Lane), and from Burton Leonard to Copgrove (Copgrove Road), the police will be monitoring all traffic approaching the village. He also suggested that the HGV traffic may well go on until mid August as the work was only half completed.

Please be mindful of speed limits on roads around the village and please spread the word.

Scaffolding at the School

Just to let everyone know that the Parish Council has been concerned that the village green has been used without permission for scaffolding erection at the school. We are now in communication with NYCC to ensure that the essential work they carry out on the school bell tower, as it affects the village green will be carried out in a safe manner.  Also, that any remedial work needed for the green after the work has been completed will be carried out promptly.

It is estimated that the work will be completed by approximately 3rd August.
