    Bannold Road

    The Parish Council, and our County Councillor Anna Bradman, have been raising the concerns of residents about the state of Bannold Road. County Highways team has responded to confirm that they are well aware of the issues along this stretch of carriageway and the Development Management Team are in talks with the many developers along this stretch of carriageway and are liaising with them to get repair works undertaken. With the amount of Developers and the associated utility companies working along this section, the booking of road space is extremely difficult at present.The latest update is that:

  • there has been issues with one developer and also Persimmon who were having issues booking road space to connect their foul sewers to the mains. This has now been rectified and their road space has been granted.
  • One of the developers has also got to make a new access across the footpath that Bovis have put in. As soon as this has been done County Highways will to chase Persimmon homes to complete the footway works between Park Crescent and Josiah Court.
  • Bovis Homes are currently in the process of getting quotes for completing their remedial works and also want to complete the new footway from Capper Road to Bannold Drove.

    The County Highway Maintenance and Development Management Teams are working with the relevant Developers to make sure that all remedial works are undertaken prior to them leaving the area.  (06/12/18)
