Welcome to the Newcastle Parish Council Website
The next Parish Council meeting will be held in The Community Centre on Wednesday 15th September at 7:30pm.
Clun Road Subsidence
WSP , Shropshire Council’s consultant, are currently undertaking the detailed design for the proposed solution which is likely to comprise a mass gabion retaining wall solution along the section of road/ embankment which has slipped. In order to determine design parameters for the design, soils information will be needed and Ground Investigation Contractors were on site February 22nd to witness the sampling and in-situ testing.
WSP have also been tasked at looking at any drainage issues either side of the embankment slip and to co-ordinate any maintenance works planned by other teams such as highway patching/ resurfacing, surface dressing, street lighting repairs etc. The main retaining wall works are likely to be undertaken in the summer 2021. However, WSP will be in touch to consult with Clun Town Council and surrounding Parish Councils along with local businesses and residents etc to determine the best timing for the works.
Update: May 2021 – The works ‘planned’ for the summer have been delayed until the autumn at the earliest.
