Temporary Traffic Regulation Notice – S14 Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984

Temporary Road Closure and “No Waiting” restriction – at Bloxham, A361 South Newington Road on 31 October for 2 nights (20:00 – 06:00)

In the interests of public safety it will be necessary for Oxfordshire County Council to close the road and impose a ‘No Waiting’ restriction as detailed above in order to facilitate carriageway resurfacing works.  

A Temporary Traffic Regulation Notice is being made to implement the temporary closure and restriction and will operate on the dates shown above.

The “No Waiting” restriction means that wherever there are in place yellow “No Waiting” cones, you will not be able to park vehicles on the highway.

Please note that Notices for urgent works can last up to 5 consecutive days only.

Access will be maintained for emergency service vehicles and for those frontages within the closure area, subject to the progress of the works and liaison with the works supervisor. 

Further information regarding the works may be obtained by contacting John Beaumont or Tim Belton, Oxfordshire County Council on 0345 310 11 11.

Attracting new volunteers in your community – new FREE event

Do you need more people to get involved in your community?

Are many of the positions of responsibility within your community held by only a few?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to either question, you should attend the up and coming FREE CFO event:


Attracting the Unusual Suspects

Date:  14 November 2017

Time:  9.45am to 1:00pm

Venue:  Islip Village Hall, Church Lane, Islip.  OX5 2TA


The event will be facilitated by Grant Hayward, whose company Collaborent, is all about creating opportunities, making connections and solving problems in business and local communities. 


We know succession planning is difficult and that most work falls to a few in the community, so let’s start a discussion to see how we can change this.
