A DROP-in event for residents to pose their questions about the upcoming roadworks in Hatton is being held on Friday (October 13).
The roadworks are set to take place on the the A4177 Birmingham Road in Hatton and all residents around the Union View development are invited to find out more.
The event is being held at Hatton Park Village Hall between 4pm and 7pm and will be attended by teams from Warwickshire County Council, developer Taylor Wimpey, and the contractor.
The works are set to begin in the coming weeks to improve the highway and enable safe access into the new Union View housing development.
The plans are the result of many months of collaboration between the developer and WCC and works will be funded by Taylor Wimpey, as part of the planning approval for the new homes.
WCC transport spokesperson Coun Jan Matecki said: “The plans for access to the new development on the Birmingham Road have been presented to the Hatton Parish Council. At this meeting, the county council and the developers – Taylor Wimpey – made a commitment to engaging with residents and local stakeholders throughout the duration of works.
“This event is the latest part of that engagement and we look forward to a constructive session where we can not only give information but also hear from residents so that any decisions we make are informed and explained.
“The works are essential to ensure the safety of residents and commuters but wherever we can, we will be listening and doing our very best to keep the disruption to a minimum.”
A spokesperson for Taylor Wimpey Midlands added: “We remain committed to engaging with the local community to keep everyone informed and are inviting residents to join us at the drop-in event to find out more about the plans.
“We would like to thank the residents of Hatton and surrounding areas for their patience during this time and we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
Residents have previously spoken out about their frustration over the impending roadworks which are set to last 11 months. They have already experienced over a year and a half of delays resulting from traffic lights put in place during the construction of the new homes at the Union View development.
