It was a pleasure to attend the High Lane Allotment Associations Open Day, both as a Councillor and a plot holder. A great event, well supported by the local community despite the awful weather at the start. I would highly recommend owning a plot, it is a great pass time, very rewarding and you meet new friends. I even managed to get my first tomatoes from the plot today.
A number of residents have contacted Cllr Kenny Blair regarding overgrown pathways or weeds on pavements. These were located at the back of Brookside School, the path next to St Thomas Church and the pavements on the Lakes Estate. Kenny contacted Officers to get these rectified and we are pleased to report that the paths at the back of the school and at the side of St Thomas Church are now passable again. The weeds on the pavements on the Lakes Estate will be done in the near future. Please contact Kenny should you see any further examples of overgrown paths or hedges.
Before and After on path near Brookside School
A number of concerned residents have contacted Cllr Kenny Blair regarding the new junction layout between the A6 and Windlehurst Road. This was after a number of incidents involving bumps between cyclists and cars and also incorrect maneouvering at the junction by cars and HGVs.
Kenny visited the site in June and contacted Officers who realised that the newly opened junction did not conform with the design drawing and the lines had to be re-drawn.
However, serious concerns still exist with the layout of the junction, therefore Kenny has requested an onsite meeting with the Project team to see the issues first hand and compare the actual layout with the design drawings.
Cllr Blair said, “Residents in High Lane suffered 26 weeks of disruption for this new junction in the hope that it would improve things. Based on feedback thus far, this is far from the case. SMBC must listen to these concerns and address them.
