Highways Update

Trewern Community Council have been advised of some planned work by Severn Trent to take place on Sale Lane, Trewern. This work is due to commence on Thursday 9 September 2021 for approximately five weeks.
This work will involve the installation of a new water main connection on Sale Lane, Trewern, for the new development in the area. Severn Trent will be working under a road closure with a sign posted diversion route in place. I have attached a screenshot of the approximate location of the works and the planned diversion route.
A programme of works is being finalised and this information will shortly be communicated by letter to the local and surrounding community.

Notice on Dog Fouling

It has been brought to our attention that there has recently been lot of dog mess around the grounds of Buttington Trewern CP school and the Community Centre. This is a major health issue, especially to the children who attend the school and are regularly playing in that area.  

Whilst we realise most dog owners are caring, responsible individuals, there are still some people who do not clean up after their pets. Anyone who fails to clear up after their dog can be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of up to £100. If the case goes to court this could cost the owner or person in charge of the animal up to £1,000. The law states that being unaware a dog has fouled or not having a suitable bag is not a reasonable excuse.  

We do have CCTV at the school and we are also increasing the number of cameras in that vicinity, as well as increasing the monitoring of the CCTV. If anyone is caught not cleaning up after their dog, we will report you and we ask that if you do see anyone offending, please report it at the following link…

PLEASE CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR DOG!
