Kerbing Work in Church Lane due to start Dec 3rd

Work to install kerbing outside the church to commence on Monday December 3rd between the hours of 08.00 – 16.00 for up to 2 weeks.

At the request of Horley Parish Council, Oxfordshire County Council have agreed to install a kerb along the east side of Church Lane, adjacent to the church boundary in order to protect the grass verge from further erosion.  Conservation kerbs will be used to match those existing at the Hornton Lane/Church Lane junction.  Work is programmed to start on 3 December, and may last for up to two weeks.  The road will not be closed, but no parking will be permitted along the section affected during the working day.
