  • Good Afternoon,

    I have spoken to a customer this afternoon and he wants me to escalate the above CRN as a complaint.
    He wants this to be responded to within 7 days or has said he wants to go to the Ombudsmen.

    *** of Thorncote road in Northill. He said he objected to planning and the development right from the beginning and his comments were ignored and it went ahead regardless. He has now said that all of the issues he was concerned about are happening and his road is being damaged and used for unloading deliveries which cause disruption and block his driveway access. He was even blocked in the other day when his booster jab was scheduled. He has also claimed to have received verbal abuse from the people unloading deliveries on site.

    This was raised as a CRN to the area team and they have come back to say it is Streetworks but this is not the case.

    He is wanting to discuss this in more detail with the appropriate department as he understands that Highways would have had to implement a traffic management plan and if this is not being adhered to then he says highways should be able to fine the developers.

    Please can this complaint be escalated accordingly and responed to by the appropriate team/individual.

    State changed to: Open
