  • Dear All, just wanted to add that a bollard will prevent bin lorries to damage the pavement as they have done in the past.

  • Thank you for your report and apologies for delay in response. We do not currently have the funds to install something like this

    We would suggest that an initial approach is made to your Town Council so that due consideration can be given towards its priority within the local area and so that the proposal can be endorsed and promoted locally. Town Councils are also well placed to secure the necessary financial cost to such a scheme.

  • Dear Sirs, many thanks for your reply. I appreciate the funding constraints but I think it is a false economy. It is only a matter of time before a lorry damages the pavement again. Fixing it will cost us (the taxpayers) way more than a bollard.....
