The Council have four Path Wardens who help keep local rights of way accessible and enjoyable for the community.
The Wardens are trained to carry out small scale maintenance works and light vegetation clearance so they can help the countryside service look after their local routes. They report issues on the Hampshire ROW (Right of Way) map .
They work with the community engagement ranger who will send job sheets when issues are reported by the public.
The Parish Council agreed at the September meeting to asked for volunteers to set up a SpeedWatch team in Owslebury. The Council had a response from six residents. The Council then identified places in the village that the SpeedWatch team can use, to send to the police to check.
The Council sent a list of eight potential sites to the police for checking and the Council are waiting for a reply from them. Once the Council receive a response, we will be able to progress this further.
There is money in next year’s budget to buy all the necessary equipment to start up SpeedWatch.
If you have some spare time and would like to help our community, we have a number a volunteer opportunity such as becoming a Path Warden and/or become a member of the SpeedWatch Team. If you are interested in volunteering for any of the above groups, please email the Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org
