Work to Commence

Niton and Whitwell Parish Council has been awarded a grant of £8,000 from the Tesco “Bags of Help” scheme to lay a 1.5 m wide all-weather surface along Ashknowle Lane bridleway NT18 from Mayflower Cottage to Lower Fields.

Works will commence on Wednesday 15 June 2016 for approximately 3 weeks. During this time it will not be possible to maintain an off road through route between Niton and Whitwell and it will be necessary to keep the field section closed because of deep excavations. However, the contractor will try to complete the work as quickly as possible and the route may be available at weekends and after 5pm weekdays at the contractor’s discretion.  Whilst the bridleways is closed, the diversion route will be Kemming Road/Chatfield Road.

The contractor will not be accessing the works via Ashknowle Lane or Lower Fields.

Please be assured that any inconvenience will be kept to an absolute minimum.
