It was a major concern put to me by local residents during the 2011 District Council elections and I promised to raise the matter, which I immediately and repeatedly did with the then County Councillor however it was not until May 2013, when Cllr Marge Harvey was elected to Hampshire County Council that the necessary attention of the County was drawn to the dreadful conditions that residents have complained of for years.
Such is the way with Local Government that things have to join a queue but now this one has risen to the top. Thanks for persisting with this, Marge – a great result and I’m sure our residents will enjoy the results.
For information, the notification reads as follows.
As part of the programme of works being undertaken by Operation Resilience we will shortly be undertaking footway reconstruction works in The Spinney and The Coppice, from the junction of Victory Avenue to the junction of Bull Copse Lane. The works are programmed to start on Monday 8 June 2015 and are expected to last for 6 weeks, weather permitting. In order to undertake the works safely it will be necessary to close the footway each day.
Information signs advising road users of the works will be erected before the start of works. A letter will be sent to local residents and an email will be sent to East Hampshire District Council to advise them accordingly.
Should you have any questions or require further information please contact the Operation Resilience team on 01962 813063 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Cllr David Evans, Kings Ward, Horndean.
