As we discussed Highway Improvement Schemes at Monday evening’s Joint Transportation Board, I saw, buried in the papers the text:
“…If TWBC (the Borough Council) decides traffic calming measures not required at Sandhurst Park, then within six months of the last occupation of the residential unit, £30,000 plus interest to be handed back to the developer.”
Are they mad? A developer gives the Borough Council thirty thousand pounds for traffic calming measures, and we’re about to hand it back?!
When we got to this item, I was amazed that nobody but myself and Sherwood Borough Councillor Frank Williams wanted to raise this. Through the Chairman Councillor Ron Weeden, I asked that KCC Highways officers urgently undertake an options appraisal, which should be brought back to the next meeting.
This was agreed, but it really shouldn’t have come to this…
