Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Concerns by both your councillors over a period of time have been picked up by our Asset management team.

As the footpaths have already been brick paved they are not due for replacement until 2026/27. It is recognised now that they are in “bad” condition particularly on the east side.

We are advised the street will be inspected to look at lift and relays for whole segments, even the whole street because it may be beyond spot maintenance.

We have also been advised that, as part of ongoing inspections of our council wide footpath network, footpaths in poor condition are being assessed for renewal treatment. This renewal will form part of of the programmed maintenance for footpaths going forward.

In response to other concerns I have raised heavy patching programmed for Frederick Streets kerb and water table for would you believe 2019 is now likely to be brought forward.
