Flood relief A417 Maisemore, B4213 Apperley and surrounding areas

Cllr Mat Fuller (of Staunton Parish Council but on behalf of the action group) writes:


On behalf of the A417 Maisemore and B4213 Apperley action group we need your help please.

Many times each year, thousands of people are severely impacted by flooding of main artery routes; A417 Maisemore, B4213 Apperley and surrounding areas. The enormous displacement of traffic severely impacts alternative routes e.g. B4215 Newent - Highnam plus all minor roads, causing heavy congestion, infrastructure damage & immense economic cost. I am sure you will agree, this is an intolerable situation and cannot continue to blight our lives.

Parish and Town Councils are unanimously supportive to get this resolved and County Councillors are united to lobby for a co-ordinated solution.

Public and business' strength of feeling is crucial to supporting our County Councillors in their lobbying of Gloucestershire County Council, Tewkesbury Borough Council, Forest of Dean District Council, Planning, Highways, Environmental authorities and Members of Parliament.

Your signature and support are crucially important and will make a difference.

Message received from:

Greg Burford

Gloucestershire County Council

Roadspace Co-ordinator (Tewkesbury District Area)



Please be advised of the following temporary road closure:


Old Road, Maisemore

The road above will be closed (as per red area on attached plan) from 08.00 07/12/2020 to 17.00 11/12/2020.       

This is to allow for installation of a new soil pipe to a private property by Pipeline Logistics.                      

If you require any further information regarding this closure please contact Gloucestershire Highways on 08000 514514.



I then queried the exact location of the works so that people accessing properties would know from which end to get to them - and this was the response:


Please see the plan extract below – exact road closure location is indicated by the red line bisecting the carriageway next to Yewtree Cottage.
