The County Council runs a Local Highways Improvement Programme to fund small improvements to the public highway. Residents and groups can submit bids every autumn for projects of up to £10,000.The bids have to describe a local problem and propose a solution that can deliver lasting benefit, which has community support. Road safety is an important recurring theme. The bids are scored by councillors every January and the highest scoring ones are funded for the next financial year.
Working with residents in various streets, have put in bids for parking restrictions in Godwin Way, Beaumont Road, Topcliffe Way, Cavendish Avenue, Netherhall Way and Chalk Grove. A Queen Edith’s Way resident has put in a bid to address speeding problems.
Our bids will be scored on 23rd January — wish us luck!
