Three Maid Hill Solar Farm – Installation of connection to the substation off Stockbridge Road 

The council has received further information from the consulting company who are managing the installation of a new 33Kv cable from the Three Maids Hill Solar Park to the substation off Stockbridge Road.  

In order to carry out the works they have applied for two road closures for through traffic as follows: 

Stud Land 

This road will be closed in two phases between 29th June 2022 and 9th September 2022. The first phase is almost complete, and the council understand this road will be re-opened on 1st August whilst Main Rd is closed. 

Main Rd 

From Monday 25th July, part of Main Road will be closed for through traffic from the Kennel Lane/Deane Down Drove/Main Rd junction (near the brick bus stop) to Stockbridge Rd. It will continue to be open from the bus stop junction to the north of the village, and there will be a diversion via Harestock Rd and Kennel Lane. Deane Down Drove will remain open throughout the works. 

From Monday 1st August, the full extent of Main Rd will be closed for through traffic, and Stud Lane will be opened up.  Access will be available to residents, to the Running Horse public house and the Recreation Ground at all times. Signs will be available that indicate how to access the Running Horse and the Recreation Ground depending on where the Main Rd road works are located at any one time. 


The council have been informed that the no 7 bus that travels through Deane Down Drove will operate throughout the works, however the no 16 will be stopped from Monday 25th July for the full extent of the works.  

The road contractors have arranged for a replacement taxi-share service for the no 16 on Monday-Friday twice a day as follows: – 

9:25   Out (to Winchester)      11:40 Return 

12:00 Out (to Winchester)      14:05 Return 

It will be necessary for passengers to register for the service before they can book. For further details see here.

Littleton and Harestock Show 

At the request of the Parish Council, the contractors will be ceasing all works between Thursday 1st September until Sunday 4th September to allow organisers and members of the public unrestricted access to the show. Further arrangements are being made to accommodate site deliveries.
