Flood Funding – Tories get it wrong – again

by Peter Harris on 11 December, 2017

In October, Southwell Town Councillors were astonished to be accused of dragging their feet over funding of flood defences. The accusation came from one of  Southwell’s own District Councillors claiming that the Town Council had been pontificating when it should have been first in the queue. In fact the Town Council was indeed the first […]

Following pressure from me, the County Council has, at last, produced its own assessment of the roads in Southwell Caunton and the villages. Residents point out the poor state of their local roads and have said how poorly repairs are made  to potholes in this area. Astonishingly of the over 1620 roads and pavements in […]

County Council ditches 20mph

by Peter Harris on 16 April, 2013

It seems that the County Council has given up on residents’ calls for a 20mph zone in their residential areas. Sadly, despite calls for a slow speed zone across Southwell, the County Council has ceased to implement a 20mph zone anywhere in Southwell. Now, they even say that they are  not prepared to have one […]

I have regularly reported significant potholes all across our area – one of the latest here. It is very disappointing to see […]

Racecourse Road barred to cyclists and walkers

by Peter Harris on 17 March, 2013

Racecourse Road from Upton Road to Rolleston, the old railway track, has been barred and gated by Southwell Racecourse. The road was gated to prevent cars using it, on non-race days. But it was always available for cyclists and walkers. Now the road has been barred to everyone. A Facebook Page opposing the measure has […]
