Animal Rendering Plant - Norton Disney


I am writing to let you know that Highways England will shortly be carrying out survey works to collect information about the land and ground conditions alongside the existing A46 network, from the Farndon roundabout to the Winthorpe roundabout.

As part of the A46 Newark Bypass scheme, they will be undertaking walkover and aerial surveys, as well as carrying out sampling and shallow excavation works. They will also be using drilling rigs to collect sample cores of the underlying geology.

The survey works are required to better understand the land conditions surrounding the existing road and the data will help to further develop the scheme.

An independent company is currently analysing the responses they have had from the recent public consultation. They will consider the feedback received as part of selecting a preferred route option later this year.


When will this survey work take place?

The survey works will start in March and will be completed by early summer 2021. To minimise disruption, works will be undertaken during normal daytime working hours (between 8am and 5pm) wherever possible. Some works will be completed overnight, to survey locations on the existing A46 road where it is safer and less disruptive to complete the work overnight.

The work will take place in various locations alongside the A46.

Please note, the planned works may be subject to change due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.


How will the work affect traffic?

Although most of the survey works will take place off the existing A46 network, there are some areas that need to implement a temporary traffic management solution to maintain a safe environment for workforce and customers. This may include temporarily closing lanes along the A46, or closing short sections of road.

Any closures will be advertised in advance and provide a suitable diversion route for any closures. If there is a need to temporarily close a section of road, this will be done overnight when traffic is quieter. The works will be carefully planned to minimise disruption.

HE have contacted landowners directly to request access to land outside of their network, and plan to start the survey works on private land first.

A Neighbourhood Plan for Winthorpe and Langford

Dear residents of Winthorpe and Langford,

We are looking to build a Neighbourhood Plan for our Parish (Winthorpe with Langford) and would be really interested in your input and views.


The main reasons for putting a plan of this kind together are:

 1)     To capture the essence of the character and values of the locality in which we live

2)     To influence the type of any future development of, and investment in, our local community in order to ensure it conforms with the character and aspirations of the residents, both for today and the future.


To this end, if you have an interest or opinion in the wellbeing of our community, we would like to invite you to register this by emailing the Parish Clerk ( with your insights, views and areas of expertise/interest – or just an expression of interest.


Further correspondence will be forthcoming on this topic, which is clearly of relevance to all of us, but we wanted to give you an early “heads up” and opportunirty to register your interest to participate in the future direction of our villages.
