The concrete pillars that hold up the street name plate Viney Lane has been damaged. Both pillars are now leaning and are unsafe. Viney Lane is the main walk way to the nursery, square and schools and therefore a lot of children pass this sign.
We as a new council are in the process of merging services previously provided by 4 different councils, Street Name Plates maintenance is one of these services. Our plan is to move the maintenance responsibility to the Highways Team who look after other highway signs, I am sure you can appreciate this is a huge task as every area dealt with these enquiries differently and had their own service standards and specifications. Our Highways Team will be creating one Council Standard Specification and will incorporate these assets into our Highways Inspection Policy.
Please bear with us whilst we are going through this transition, your enquiry has been received and will be actioned over the coming months. However, in the meantime any emergencies which are likely to cause danger to the public will be addressed immediately.
