Potholes - Update

Parsonwood Hill, Whitwick
Over the past few weeks a number of local people have spoken to me about the problem, after a long cold winter, of potholes.

A number of areas have been particularly badly affected, notably Parsonwood Hill in Whitwick and Dalkeith Walk in Thringstone.

I have reported the Parsonwood Hill problems to the County Council but haven't yet received a response.

As Dalkeith Walk is an access road I have also reported this issue to North West Leicestershire District Council and can confirm officers have now been out to check on the problem.

I have been advised that as the road has 'delaminated beyond repair' and the extent of the damage is over a 'considerable area' that the council are proposing repairing a section of the road covering.

A site meeting of council staff and contractors has been arranged for 19 March and hopefully repairs will be carried out shortly after.

As always my top priority is to work hard for the residents of Whitwick and Thringstone.

If you want to report a pothole or other problem don't hesitate in letting me know.
