Maintenance & improvements

Thanks to a local resident getting in touch, the pavement in front of the four houses on Rykneld Road should now be improved. This work was required as part of the building work, but had been missed.

The double yellow lines where Valley Road joins the ring road are being extended to reduce conflict with parked cars when vehicles turn off the ring road. This also follows requests from local people.

Walk and cycle

Thank you to everyone who sent in comments about walking and cycling in and around Heatherton. The project to make some small improvements has now been delayed by the Council as the highways staff are too busy. The project will be carried forward to after April, so do send in any further comments!

Hedge cutting

If you've got a hedge that abuts a path or pavement, please consider if it needs a trim. Now would be a good time to do the work before birds start nesting. Thank you.
