Road Closure Orders
CLOSURE OF SCHOOL STREET, STOCKTON ON FRIDAY 19TH AND MONDAY 22ND NOVEMBER
There has been great disruption with the closures of School Street, often at short notice and with issues with school buses.
We have now been advised by WPD that they require School St, Stockton to be closed again. They are aware of the recent incident with the school service and they’ve agreed to reduce the closure windows to assist.
The Friday 19th closure will be from 11.00 to 14.00 and Monday 22nd will be 10.00 to 12.00. Given the very short notice, we won’t be able to arrange cover by UBUS or IndieGo, so anyone wishing to travel to or from the village can use a Taxi and as long as they obtain a receipt for the journey and send it to us either by post or scanned in an email with their Name, Address, Telephone no, Bank Sort Code and Account no we’ll reimburse them. If they’re worried about email security they can send it directly to me. If they’re posting, it needs to go to Passenger Transport Team. Warwickshire County Council. Shire Hall. Warwick. CV34 4RL.
We’ll do our best to get some physical notices out but with the best will in the world and other priorities this may not happen. I’ll endeavour to get a social media post done asap and shared directly into the Stockton Facebook group, but if this information could also be disseminated out it’d be appreciated.
Any questions, please let me know.

The original order was for School Street closed to vehicular traffic between its junctions with Becks Lane and Post Office Lane between 0900 and 1500 on
• Monday 25th October
• Friday 5th November
• Friday 12th November
The Stagecoach 63 bus was unable to serve the village during that time period on those days.
Reason for Order was to safely enable works in connection with the Substation. An alternative route will be signed and is available via Becks Lane, Church Street, School Street, St Michaels Crescent and vice versa. Vehicular access & egress will be maintained where possible.
