BROADLEY COPSE – October Update

By September 10, 2019 October 5th, 2019 FrontPageMain

Following our last post we just wanted to give the parish a further update on some of the key issues we have been addressing.

  1. Traffic through the village
    1. Our contractor policy has now been reissued to all our contractors that detail the 20mph speed limit through the village and that white noise beepers must be used when on site.
    2. Our signs for our tractors and trailers are on order and so all ASH Farming tractors will soon be labelled and clearly identifiable.
    3. An email was sent round to local agricultural businesses detailing that traffic was a nuisance for the community so could they also ask drivers to be mindful of their speed.
  2. Odour
    1. We have now met with an odour specialist who we have now appointed to remodel the Broadley copse site and give suggestions if and where improvements can be made.
  3. Flies
    1. We know the weather change has resulted in some of you not needing to use fly papers but if you are, we would still like to gather a sample of fly papers to have the fly type assessed. If you could help by supplying us with used fly papers please could you get in touch with us.

Broadley Copse Liaison Group

We have been rethinking how we tackle the issues and that we need a more systematic approach. We have been speaking with the Parish council and would like to set up a Broadley Copse liaison group. This group will provide a two-way channel of communication between us and the local community, with the express objective of addressing specific concerns raised by local residents. Outline arrangements were discussed at the Parish council meeting on Wednesday 2 October; watch this space for further updates.


Our email address is so please get in touch with any concerns.
