Where a gent died a few months ago there is a shrine of flowers, candles, a cross. This is very distracting as often items fall towards the footpath and road. Hazardous

Updates

  • More, brighter lights have been added along with a very large marble cross. When someone "tends" to this unauthorised shrine they block the road with hazard lights on.This is on a bend on a very fast moving road. Some other poor souls will end up having an accident.

    Still open, via questionnaire

  • More additions! many years ago a smaller shrine was removed from dashwood hill as it was distracting. this is worse especially when a car parks blocking the pavement, on a bend.

  • I would hope this shrine would actually be a warning to other drivers and motor bike riders to slow down and be more careful. Does anyone object to council signs saying "5 deaths on this road in the last 3 years, please be careful". ?

  • Flashing red lights are only to be used by emergency services. Not for any other purpose. Even more obvious now the hedgerow has been hacked. Is it safe for people "tending" the shrine to park on the bend of an A road? Another accident waiting to happen.

  • The need for a 'shrine' is understandable. However this sort of thing has been for a limited time in the past. If it is permitted to stay indefinitely, it would set a precedent for others who may wish to create something larger, more brightly lit, less tasteful or more permanent. It does not seem to be a good idea to permit people to reserve small (or large) patches of the road verges for their own purposes, however understandable the motives.

  • Nothing has been done, It is more dangerous than ever as the trees and hedges have been oblitorated

  • This shrine is large and causes a distraction at night. This is a dangerous stretch of road as identified by Safer Roads. A respectful amount of time has passed since the accident and the shrine should now be removed for safety reasons.

  • Its been there for 9 months now, It is no longer being tended and is just a mess. NOW can it be removed? The verges could do with cutting too. difficult to see farm traffic emerging from the field

  • Now 10 months. No one is tending it, it is an eyesore. You have !o pay to have a memorial in a cemetery, Why is this still permitted...........

  • This is still in place and has been increased almost 5 fold!. large shrubs have been planted and there are many lights of differing colours. the incident occurred friday the 3rd of august 2018..

    This needs to be removed. 3 people were seen digging round the area recently
