BUSINESSES OPEN AS USUAL
The Mayor of Ottery St Mary Cllr Paul Bartlett and Chris Abbott from Abbotts DIY talked to Andy Ballantyne from Heart Radio last week on a bid to attract shoppers to Ottery St Mary and make clear that Ottery is not closed. Catch up with the interview on Heart Radio’s website.
On Tuesday 16th October CLLR Paul Bartlett, Rob Wickham and David Hemmings were on ITV West Country stating again that Ottery businesses are open as usual and there is a lot going on in the town. Did you see the item?
Two SILENT SOLDIERS have been installed at the Church and at the Library. These are to commemorate the Centenary of the ending of WW1. They were kindly donated by a local resident and installed by Stuart Phillips from Tickety Boo and his team.
MESSAGE FROM CLLR PAUL BARTLETT - MAYOR OF OTTERY ST MARY
On behalf of OSM Town Council, I would like to thank all those who took the time to attend the meeting on 18th October at the Town Council offices. The invitation was hand delivered and posted to every shop and organisation in the town and the objective of the meeting was to unify efforts aimed at finding solutions not only for traffic issues but to enhance the town's viability.
Many good ideas added to those agreed at the meeting of the Business Forum the previous day were put forward which we think will contribute to ease the present situation and stimulate shop footfall.
Among others, liaising with Devon County Highways to temporarily move the loading bay in front of McColls so cars coming from Batts Lane can exit more freely. Better sign posting around the Town. East Devon District Council to be approached about the possibility of free parking after a certain time. Clarissa Place from the Sidmouth Herald offered her help to publicise the town's assets. Dave Hemmings from Coles reported extensively on the present situation of the scaffolding and road closures.
A second meeting will take place as and when we have further updates on the progress of the restoration work and the road closures.
'The engineers and loss adjusters working on the fire damaged Pine Store have confirmed to me that the road is set to be reopened by Christmas.' Claire Wright

UPDATE ON ROAD CLOSURES FROM
CLAIRE WRIGHT 19.09.2018
**NOTICE OF ROAD CLOSURE AND BUS INFORMATION DUE TO FIRE**
We have been led to believe that Silver Street will be closed for some time due to scaffolding and the flat roof being put on over it for protection so that people can work under it.
This will necessitate the installation of some form of support which potentially could block the road and prevent traffic - updates will be posted as we receive them.
Stagecoach buses are now running on schedule from the bus stop at Mill Street at the bottom of Millcroft. They are able to pick up and drop off at the Sainsbury's delivery road on Fairmile Lane. Details of the new location are on the electronic sign at the existing stop outside the butchers in the square.
In addition, the signed diversion will be via Chineway, Putts Corner the A375 and Honiton, to be able to accommodate large vehicles.
