Residents from across the borough nominated local pavements for repair, as part of our Community Pavement Fund. 25 pavements have now been selected.
The Community Pavement Fund was previously allocated to each 'village' based on the number of nominations submitted. The Cabinet Member for Transport, Streetscene and Air Quality, Cllr Ehmann, has removed this process as it was seen as an 'unfair lottery of pavement repairs'.
Cllr Ehmann has reviewed the nominated roads against our pavement assessment system, which gauges the condition level of the pavement. The roads that were most in need of repair were the ones that were agreed as part of the planned works.
Each of the 18 wards in the borough will benefit from the scheme with a repair. Outside of the nomination process, seven pavements that need repair work have also been identified which will be fixed using money from the existing budget allocated to this process.
Residents are encouraged to raise damaged pavements with their local ward councillors. Engaging with community representatives and councillors will help us to understand where the pavements most in need of work are and ensure that efforts are directed at these fixes.
