EVRA January 2018 Update

Happy New Year to you all. Here are updates on a number of topics that will be of interest.

Traffic and parking around Eaton Primary School: We have received a response from the City Council on enforcement of the new double yellow lines at the junction of Greenways with Duverlin and Purtingay Closes. You can read this at: https://eatonvillage.co.uk/local-issues/traffic-and-parking-around-eaton-primary-school/

Neighbourhood Policing Reports: We receive monthly reports from the Norwich South policing team on Crime Updates for Eaton. You can read these at:  https://eatonvillage.co.uk/local-issues/local-policing/

St Andrew’s Church Year of Celebration: The Church will be celebrating 700 years since the first recorded incumbent was appointed in 1318. Events will be held throughout the year for the whole community and EVRA will play its part in these. You read more about this and find links to the St Andrew’s website at: https://eatonvillage.co.uk/local-links-and-services/st-andrews-year-of-celebration-2018/

Eaton Street Cycle Path Works: We do not currently have a start date for these works but Transport for Norwich say that this is likely to be during the summer. We recently asked for an indication of when these might take place and also the duration of any closure of the Slip-Road but TfN say that cannot provide this information until they have agreed  the programme of works with their contractors. We have also asked about interim arrangements for the bus service and will continue to press for information on this. You can read more about this and see the  exchange of emails between EVRA and TfN at: https://eatonvillage.co.uk/local-issues/new-transport-project-for-eaton-and-cringleford/

Eaton War Memorial: We recently received a consultation document from Historic England proposing the listing of the Eaton War Memorial on Newmarket Road as part of the First World War Commemoration Project. EVRA along with the War Memorial Trustees have responded to Historic England supporting the listing of this.
