  • MASS barriers have been placed on site, I am more concerned with wheels crossing the stone slab on this narrow road, when two vehicles pass at this point.
    The work has been submitted to the County Bridge Engineer for review.

  • This bridge has been like that for over sixty years! It would be a travesty if anything was done to alter the appearance of something just because someone (that probably doesn't live in the area) thinks it looks "somewhat dangerous" what has been put there now looks horrendous and needs to be removed, For the record I've lived in Mill Street all my life. Kind regards Steve Ward

  • I reported a while ago my concern about the gap in the paving where people stand and look at the waterfall. You reacted swiftly to make the area safe but what you have erected is so unsightly and totally spoils the view of the waterfall. This fence and bollards have now been here for many weeks and please could you come and do the work to make the paving safe as soon as possible so people can see the waterfall again. Many thanks, Catherine Robson.

  • Engineers will need to happy its safe before the barriers can be removed.
