Dorset County Council have received an application from Wessex Water to close part of MIDDLE ROAD, LYTCHETT MATRAVERS from its junction with Bartom’s Lane northwards for a distance of approximately 125 metres. The closure has been requested to allow Wessex Water engineers to repair a leaking water pipe. These works are programmed to take place on Monday 05 February 2018 between 09:00hrs and 17:00hrs. The road closure is necessary for safety reasons, as the works will take place within the whole width of the carriageway.

Wessex Water will publicise the road closure in a number of ways: they will place information boards on the road in this area to inform the travelling public of the works; they will carry out a letter drop to local residents directly affected by the works; and they will sign a vehicular diversion route using the local road network.

If you have any concerns about this proposal please contact John Alford ( by Thursday 23 January 2018.
