Sumner Avenue Triangle

The file the Parish Council has on the grassed area in the corner of Sumner Avenue is very thick and documents various efforts to try and address the problem that residents can’t easily access their driveways.

When Sam Currie became one of our Borough Councillors I took him to meet some of the residents and highlighted the issue to him. Since then Sam and the Parish Council have been working hard to get a solution and this week Sam reported that plans have been submitted for reduction in the size of the triangle and the provision of an access road round the edge to allow the residents to drive to their properties. Work should commence early next year.

Our grateful thanks to Sam for sticking with this… now about the state of the railings on the bridge, eh Sam?
