Thank you for contacting us with information relating to a Highways issue. Your request has been passed to our Traffic Management Team for further investigation. They will inspect the area, look at existing records and investigate the feasibility of the request. They may need to carry out new surveys and consult local Councils or other bodies. They will consider existing budgets and other requests before deciding on the best course of action. All cases vary but this work can often take 4 or more weeks to complete.

Thank you for contacting us in relation to the footway and footpath at The Grove in proximity to the Church. An Officer will visit the site to better understand the issues raised, however it is unlikely we would be able to widen the footway outside the Church as this would impact negatively on the Highway width and is considered a key constraint. Once a visit has been completed, we will provide a further update. Thank you once again.

The Grove footway was inspected and details have been passed across to the Area team who are responsible for maintenance. They have confirmed that their budget for this financial year is fully committed, however they will review in the new financial year. I have made a note to contact the team in April 2022 to ensure this is revisited. Unfortunately, carriageway width prevents any further widening of the existing footway. Your request to improve the informal footpath leading to church on the west side will also be considered next year by the Area team. Thank you once again for your feedback
