County Councillors report

County Councillors Report – September 2019


Patching work on Heldre Lane should be taking place imminently. Some pot holes have been repaired (e.g, one in Middletown on the corner past the residential estate) and will be doing other pot holes on a priority basis. Firs/Fox lane is being monitored (I took the highways officer for a drive along here). I have written to the Portfolio Holder for Highways to request a site visit/drive around of our ward – there are a few ongoing issues which I would like to highlight that have been on the ‘to do’ list for quite some time e.g. the overgrown passing place on Firs Lane.


I continue to raise the problem areas but have been told that the jetter is again on the trunk road network for the next 6-8 weeks.


There are a couple of areas where residents’ hedges are causing visibility issues and the Community Council will be writing to them in due course.
