    Abstraction of water from Langham Brook The brook running through Langham is owned by each riparian property and we thank each of you for fulfilling your responsibiites with regard to the maintenance of the bank and water course. The recent warm, dry spell has left the water level very low and we felt it was important to remind riparian owners that, whilst the abstraction of water up 20cubic metres per day or less does not require a licence from the Environment Agency, amounts in excess of this may do so and should be referred to them. A reminder of riparian duties: Pass on the flow of water without obstruction, pollution or diversion affecting the rights of others. Maintain the bed...

    Bulky waste collection service. RCC will resume its bulky waste collection service from Monday 4 May.

  • Rutland Agriculture Society Planning Application


    Created on: Saturday, 11 April 2020 12:14

    Rutland Agriculture Society Planning Application A planning application 2020/0245/FUL has been received by Langham Parish Council. It has been submitted by Rutland Agricultural Society and seeks a new entrance to the Rutland Show Ground on Burley Road. They propose this new entrance be via the field that lies next to Langham Junction level crossing. It would be used for vehicular exit during the Rutland show, and possibly for a limited number of other events, and would also be used by emergency vehicles. Langham Parish Council has recommended refusal as the application seems to ignore the Langham Neighbourhood Plan, is unsafe, seems impractical and would cause Langham no end of traffic ...

    Household waste collections continue as normal but due to the extra waste generated by people being at home they are unable to take any additional waste. If it isn't in a bin it wont be taken.

Traffic Group

The efforts of a small group of residents and a Parish Councillor (know as the Traffic Team) continue in order to try to get further improvements to the A606, such that it can, at least, be crossed safely - which is not the case at present.

RCC are working with us on this and are carrying out a Traffic Survey in the w/c 11th November. The results of this survey will be taken into account when RCC decide on what further, if anything, needs to be done to the A606 in Langham. We understand that RCC will also be carrying out a survey of all householder to assess people's feeling and opinions about the safety of the A606 through our village. This provides a 'softer' more subjective measure to add to the 'harder' more objective data from the Traffic Survey.We will let you know when that is due to happen - and the results will also add to Langham's case for crossing improvements.
