(VERBAL REPORT AT MEETING; COPY OF REPORT TO CLERK)
The patching work on Manvers Estate is now complete. The surface dressing will take place on 24th/25th April to include the service road on Mansfield Road.
It has been confirmed that yellow lines will be placed at the junction of Mill Lane/High Street. This work to be done during 2018/19.
Subject to negotiations, C/Cllr Peck’s proposal to reduce the weight limit on Rufford Road to the same as Mill Lane will be introduced. (Other than tractors going to their farms)
The speed limit on Gorsethorpe Lane has been reduced to 50mph – in line with Peafield Land and Mansfield Road.
The average speed cameras are now on Peafield Lane – up to Warsop roundabout. C/Cllr Peck has requested extending the cameras to Edwinstowe and will continue to pursue this.
Various potholes and blocked drains have been reported.
C/Cllr Peck inspected West Lane, with Highways Officers. They have agreed to patch the relevant sections and request a full resurface (from Fourth Avenue to the Fire Station).
C/Cllr Peck has donated a further £1,200 to the Thoresby Memorial Funds.
Ollerton Roundabout – the Housing Infrastructure Fund has refused the application for £6.2m towards the improvements. It was a very competitive national bidding round, N&SDC were nowhere near the top of the list of applicants. There has been under investment in our roads over a number of years and it is very doubtful future applications would be successful.
This has implications on Thoresby Development as without the upgrade to Ollerton roundabout, only 300 houses can be built. This has implications on jobs/housing and s106 monies.
N&SDC set the budget at a 1.97% increase.
The Economic Development Committee are considering investing £250k in refurbishing and extend the Craft Centre and to upgrade the old toilet block to two retail units.
Edwinstowe Hall has submitted a planning application to erect a fence and block the current entrance on Church Street.
