Denstone Parish Council

New, Accessible Website

As you see, we have a new website! This should be easier to use on small tablet and phone screens and should also be easier for people with limited vision or other disabilities. Please tell us if you find any problems that we should know about! There’s a lot still to do, and we’ll be developing and changing it, so if there’s anything you’d like to see added, please let us know.


Temporary Traffic Regulation Order 15th November 2020

Note: The closure is in the Parish of Croxden but the diversion route also goes through the Parishes of Denstone and Rocester.

NOTICE is hereby given that the Staffordshire County Council on 10 November 2020 made an Order the effect of which will be to prohibit any vehicle from proceeding in that length of Combridge Lane in Combridge from its junction with Hollington Road for a distance of 80 metres in a southerly direction unless the vehicle is being used in connection with the works; or unless the vehicle requires access to premises on the length of road or is being used for police, fire brigade or ambulance purposes.

An alternative route for traffic is available via Combridge Lane, Old Uttoxeter Road, B5030 Woodseat Level, Station Road, Red Hill, Hollington Road and vice versa. For more information, visit: https://one.network/?tm=118469841.

The order will come into operation from 08:00 hours on 15 November 2020 and the said works will commence on or as near as practicable to that date. It is anticipated that the works will be completed by 16:30 hours on the same day.

The Order will remain in force for a period of 18 months, or until the BT Pole replacement works, which it is proposed to carry out on or near the road have been completed, whichever is the earlier.
