Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Earlier this year I notified our Administration of concerns I had with the localised flooding occurring in Frederick Street due to irregularities in the kerb and water table.

The issue became apparent to me as I door knocked residents to get their input into the Kelvin Avenue projects.

I was subsequently advised that the footpaths were due for replacement in 2026/27 but they acknowledged that they were in poor condition. Beyond this a study had already been programmed into the state of our roads and kerbs.

This assessment has not yet been completed. I expect some advice shortly as to whether the consultants engaged to make this assessment agree with me or not and whether therefore the programming for heavy patching of the kerbs and water table will remain for the year 2019 or whether it will be bought forward.

I hope to have something to tell you all late next month or early in August.
