DavidThe President's Heartbeat Message

24th November 2016

Yeovil gas supplier Wales & West Utilities, will be digging holes around town from 16th January to upgrade gas underground gas pipes from metal to plasticSeveral town centre streets will be affected, and I am grateful on this occasion to Chamber member Linda Bassett of MPP Lettings in Church Street, for bringing this to my attention.  All affected businesses should have received a 10th November letter from W&WU.  If you did not receive this letter or have mislaid it, please email me, and I will send you a copy.  To ensure Chamber can notify members of upcoming change which may impact on the business community, in good time and to allow consultation opportunities, I have asked Yeovil Town Council, who sanction work such as gas pipe upgrades, to send me alerts.  On a positive; members may be pleased to learn that as a direct result of the good working relationship with Somerset County Council Highways, Chamber was able to persuade Highways to defer the major re-surfacing and drainage works on the Yeovil-Sherborne A30 dual carriageway away from the planned November/December 2016 dates.  The A30 re-surfacing work will now take place in July 2017, and avoid the compounding of any disruption arising from the ongoing Lyde-Sherborne junction works.
