£30,000 windfall for safety on Sandhurst Road? Hand It Back!

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…

    The £30k would go a long way to resurfacing Sandhurst Road which have got some of the worse potholes and ruts and sunken manholes in the town.


  2. Steve says:

    In fairness, they say Sandhurst Park… and you have been campaigning for Sandhurst Road. I’m referring to the condition of Sandhurst Road

    Why would Sandhurst Park need traffic claming? I live there and see no need for it.
