Highways inspector in Tunstead during week commencing 18th April 2022

Please e-mail the Clerk on [email protected] if you have any highways issues you would like investigated by NCC. Please let the Clerk know by 15th April 2022.

NCC Streetscene Inspectors are due to visit Tunstead from the week commencing 18/04/2022 if there is work identified for their attention. If you have any specific highway maintenance issues, they would be grateful for any information to ensure these issues are considered by the Inspector who will be taking account of maintenance needs of the road network in your area.

Their 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 NCC 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 NCC sometimes have no control. NCC 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, NCC will not disclose any details of an enquiry.

Electricity supply during the storm

The following is from UK Power Networks:

Storm Eunice is expected to arrive on Friday 18th and is expected to bring stronger winds and unsettled weather.

Our electricity network is built to be resilient but strong winds and heavy rain can bring down branches and trees, damaging overhead power lines. Where this happens we work to restore power as quickly and safely as possible.

We have organised for additional staff in our contact centre and more engineers on the ground, particularly for Storm Eunice, to be available to help customers whose electricity supply might be affected by the predicted weather.

Both you and your residents will be able to find regular updates and information about individual power cuts on our website www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk . We will also be posting general updates on @UKPowerNetworks .

Anyone experiencing a power cut should:

· Visit www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk/powercut and type in their postcode to view our live power cut map, with details of individual power cuts

· Call 105 free of charge to speak to our customer service team, report a power cut or damage to the electricity network

· Tweet @UKPowerNetworks to report a power cut or to receive updates

· Visit www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk for the latest updates

We advise people to stay clear of power lines and report damaged power lines immediately by calling 105 free from either a landline or a mobile phone. If they see electricity lines that are down or causing significant risk to the public they should call 999.

We provide extra help to customers on our Priority Service Register during a power cut. Households with older or disabled people, those with children under five, or where someone uses medical or mobility equipment that requires electricity as well as other reasons can join the register.
