Speed Detector Trial, Gloucester Road.
The Parish recently carried out a trial of a speed detector in Gloucester Road measuring the speed of vehicles travelling towards the A48. The results were quite alarming. Over the five days of the trial 5,203 vehicles passed the detector of which 3,189 exceeded the 30 mph speed limit; a few as high as 60+ mph. These are alarming figures. Many children cross this road on their way to school and the situation is likely to become more dangerous when new houses are built either side of the road. The council will be presenting the report to the Police, Gloucestershire Highways and the Road Safety Partnership. Full report.

Smell from Castleford Hill Care Home.
Have you noticed, or been affected by, the sewerage smell from Castleford Hill Care Home?
The Parish Council has received complaints over a long period of time and duly reported them to the Environment Regulatory Service (ERS) at the Forest of Dean District Council. The service has been in contact with the care home over a period of time and small improvements have been made. However, to progress the issue further ERS has to react to complaints from members of the public who are affected by the nuisance. So, if you are one of those, you can complete a nuisance log sheet and send it to ERS. Alternatively, you can complain directly to ERS at the forest of Dean District Council 01594 810000.
