improved. The Parish Council will monitor this and if necessary contact the Test
Valley Dog Warden.
TRAFFIC NOISE FROM THE A303.
Mrs Ferguson stated that at present the A303 traffic noise is not an issue, but
felt that the Parish Council should be aware that this
become a problem in the future. Cllr Mrs Ferguson suggested that the Parish
Council ask for the 'A303 Forecast Traffic Noise Model' document so that a copy
can be kept on file for future reference. This forecast should give noise levels
and details of roadside planting and embankments to help stop the traffic noise
reaching the village. The Parish Council thought this a good idea and asked the
Clerk to contact the Highways Agency on this matter.
The Parish Council discussed this and
felt that a Litter Clean-up of this area might be in order, the Clerk pointed
out that as this is a slip road off the A303 it would be advisable to seek
permission from the Highways Agency, insurance cover must be checked in case of
an accident and there could be Health and Safety Issues to consider. The Parish
Council noted this.
