NCC Streetscene Inspectors are due to visit Tunstead from the week commencing 27/12/2021 if there is work identified for their attention. If you have any specific highway maintenance issues, please let the Clerk know so that he can pass on the information to ensure these issues are considered by the Inspector who will be taking account of maintenance needs of the road network in the Parish.
NCC’s key concern is maintaining the essential elements with regard to the safety of the highway network, with this in mind their highest priority is –
Potholes – an accurate location and dimensions (including depth) really help us to judge their priority.
Regular incidences of Standing water/ flooding – location and area affected are important, in addition any knowledge of any features which may be blocked, does the ponding eventually clear over time, does this only occur during heavy rain. Recently heavy rain falls and wash from fields has caused issues over which we sometimes have no control. We can clear gulley pots and back ditches and grips within the highway boundary.
Mud on road – this is a common occurrence in our rural community. If this repeatedly affects highway users ability to travel, is not signed in advance or is simply left following farming activity, the most useful information is contact details of the responsible party. Be assured that this information is completely confidential, we will not disclose any details of an enquiry.
