Just got this in the email this morning after weeks of email hounding everyone. This came from a council member. Im am so happy that all my council tax and road tax and petrol tax is being spent so on many other fantasic things other than the basic infrastructure of the country. Warm fuzzy feelings....
Southwark roads have had no funding for many years and the Executive member for transport is trying to address this. However currently there is no budget for road repairs. I will speak to him on his return to ask him to look at this particular spot and if there is any chance of moving some money. However to be honest I'm not that optimistic.
I doubt that but when you issue them a county court summons, they really dont have a foot to stand on. Wanting to spend money and being forced to spend money are different, they come out of different budgets.
Yes, this just doesn't make sense. The council must have spent loads of money implementing the controlled parking scheme just outside the CCZ. We have had new road markings, new pavements, new junctions, new street furniture and more. All this must have cost more than filling a few holes would cost.....
These were funded by Transport for London. Mayor Ken gave Southwark (and Lambeth) substantial sums of money for works outside the CCZ boundary
- "in an attempt to buy-off local opposition"
- "as part of a package of ameliorative works to reduce any impact of displaced traffic and parking"
