Report from Kelham Hall – October 2013

by Peter Harris on 19 October, 2013

The District Council met on Tuesday Oct 15. There have been no meetings of any main committees that I have attended since the September, as there are so few meetings now of the Council and its Committees now. I will continue to send direct messages from the Council Chamber as the Council have now stopped […]

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 seem to have discovered one of the very worst roads in the County – Arnold Avenue in Southwell. Within a space of twenty metres there are fifteen […]

So many residents have complained to me about the state of the roads, I have asked Nottinghamshire County Council to inform me of their own assessment of the roads in Southwell and Caunton. I have regularly reported significant potholes all across our area – one of the latest here. It is very disappointing to see […]
