Yoxall Parish Council


Roads & Pavements

This section of the website is designed to inform parishioners of any issues/developments affecting the roads and pavements around Yoxall.


Ongoing issues with speeding motorists continue. The Parish Council is trying to re-establish the Community Speed Watch team. Anyone wishing to get involved should contact Bob Young, Parish Clerk, whose details can be found on the "Councillor" page of this website.

SID's Speed Indicator Detectors) have been considered for the village advising motorists of their speed and which have proved useful in villages such as Tatenhill and Anslow. The cost of indicators is significant and unfortunately the Parish Council does not have the funds available.

Another alternative would be the introduction of a formal 20 mph speed limit on the approaches to the school from Alexandra Drive to Savey Lane. A proposal was put before the Parish Council in January. Contact will be made with the headmaster at the local school and the leaders of scouts and guides. thereafter a Public meeting will be held in the Parish Hall (date to be advised) to give parishioners the chance to have their say.


Instances if speeding have been reported at this location. Local police have been advised. A representation from residents was made at the January meeting of the Parish Council and it was agreed that an ongoing dialogue would be maintained. 


It is important that defects in roads, pavements and gullies are reported. The on-line system is easy to use. Go to www.Staffordshire.gov.U.K. then type in Potholes in the search area. You will see Potholes overview. Then Report a pothole online.

As a resident of Yoxall, your help would be appreciated in reporting such defects, on the email quoted above. 
Unfortunately the programme of pothole repairs has been temporarily suspended to allow for a programme of full fibre broadband cables to be installed.

Discussions have taken place at County level where the objective has been to get Savey Lane and Hadley Street resurfaced. We await developments.


Severn Trent has confirmed that lockable bollards are to be installed at their site, to prevent vehicles using the area as a lay-by.
