The OCC Bridge Technician has stated that they are going to widen the verge on the north side to make it a footway as an interim measure and remove the old bridge for repair as soon as UK Power Networks have removed their supply from it.
The traffic signals will be removed once the temporary footway is in place.
UK Power Networks will be diverting their mains through the existing south footway and a meeting will be arranged by them within the next month to discuss it.
The contract documents for the widening of the north footway are nearing completion.

Why Chinnor needs to undertake a Site Allocation review
In the closing stages of the preparation of Chinnor's Neighbourhood Plan - a Ministerial Statement called for Neighbourhood Development Plans to contain nominated development sites so as to strengthen the Plan. No selected sites were included in Chinnor NDP being that the two preferred sites (CHI 7 and CHI 8) plus one reserved site (CHI 20) had already been granted planning permission. As the Plans preparation was nearing completion and rather than delay submission for approval and referendum by adding selected development sites it was decided to complete the plan without allocated sites. The aim then was to review the Plan following adoption with the objective of incorporating allocated sites, to meet this requirement, thus ensuring that the Chinnor Neighbourhood Plan would be amended to keep up to date with changes in the NDP process. It was then understood that such a review would be a proportional task, requiring an amendment/update and not the production of a new plan.
Several positive meetings with SODC, Chinnor Parish Council and the Steering Group have now taken place, late in 2017 and in early 2018, and work has now commenced on the preparation of the Site Allocation requirement with the aim of meeting the required processes to get the review adopted at the earliest opportunity to gain the maximum control.Continue Reading
