Road Closure Warning – Ash Dieback Wednesday 21st July onwards

On behalf of Gloucestershire County Council, Gloucestershire Highways are working in joint partnership with the adjoining landowner National Trust and will shortly be carrying out essential works at the above location in order to remove unsafe trees infected with Ash Dieback.

Ash Dieback disease causes Ash trees to become unsafe, and the tree could shed limbs or collapse on to the road causing harm and injury. This work must take place for health and safety reasons, to protect road users and pedestrians, and make sure the carriageway remains clear of debris.

The work will take place Wednesday 21st July 2021 to Tuesday 3rd August 2021 (excluding weekends), from 07.00 to 19.00 daily

Survey Launched to Shape Future of Gloucestershire’s Fire and Rescue Service

A consultation has been launched today by Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service (GFRS) and the responses will be used to help form its Community Risk Management Plan (CRMP) for 2022-25.

The CRMP aims to identify and assess all risks within the county that fall under the fire service’s remit. It also sets out what steps the service will take to minimise the possible impact of those risks and how effectively resources are used.

The consultation period will run for four weeks, finishing on 15 March. More information and a link to the survey can be found here –

It asks questions such as how effective you think the service is, how satisfied you are with it and if the service provides good value for money. It also asks which activities you think are most important to prioritise and if the fire service’s workforce is representative of the communities it serves.

There will be two stages to the public consultation, this being the first and there will be a further consultation on the draft document in the autumn. The CRMP will then be published in spring 2022.
