Month ending 10th August 2022

Street Doctor Headline

One new street doctor report raised during this period No 119. The following remain open and continue to be monitored Boz 99 and 116.

The current position with the matters raised with NNC representative is as follows:

  • Traffic calming and 20mph speed limit along Harold Rd.

Request made to Ian Boyes to install, as per email; road markings and signs so described. No change.


  • Ongoing works yet to be completed
  • The pavement is due to be lower at the corner of Harrold Rd and Church Lane; order placed and work has been programmed. Ian Boyes confirmed that the kerb lowering at the corner of Church Ln. and Harrold Rd. is to be undertaken during the school summer holidays. No change.
  • Look to install yellow no parking lines at the corner of Allen Hill and Harrold Rd. To be added to next years’ install programme, we will need to mark up where we would like the intended no parking lines to be placed along Church Lane and Harrold Rd. Submission made, awaiting determination; this could take up to 18 months to complete. Awaiting determination. Again, this was raised at the Parish’s Council meeting and we have requested that this be done sooner than previously reported. No change during this period. Notification received 12th April 22 to install no parking double yellow lines. Yellow no parking lines installed at Camden Sq. and Warner St.


  • Discussion with NCC Highways representative

Notes from meeting with Ben Wright held on the 3rd August 2022.

  1. Removal of hedge at the corner of Allens Hill and London Road. To facilitate yield sign replacement; chase up removal’ Response from Highways: This will be removed on Friday 5th
  2. Lowering of the kerb at the corner of Harrold Rd and Church Lane to be completed prior to the school returning from summer break; we agreed the importance of meeting this deadline; to be brought to the attention of relevant team undertaking the work to ensure it is completed on time. Response from Highways: Works will be undertaken over the school holiday period as discussed on site.
  3. The vegetation obscuring road sign along Church Lane to be trimmed back; currently not visible. Response from Highways: A works order is being raised to clear this vegetation within 28 days.
  4. The junction of Harrold Rd and Church Lane/Allens Hill Rd Marked up for thermal repair work. Response from Highways: The Thermal Repairs will be added to our existing order that will be completed within the next 6 months.
  5. Harrold Rd and Dychurch Lane Street signs to be replaced. Response from Highways: This issue has been referred to NNC who maintain street nameplates – I’ll report back any updates.
  6. NNC to review the roads in Bozeat before October this year for surface dressing; for inclusion in next years’ programme of works. Highways have put the suggested sites forward to the team responsible for surface treatments and will have a programme around October-time. It must be noted that these sites aren’t guaranteed for inclusion in the programme and will be ranked alongside other recommended sites across North Northamptonshire.  Provide feedback on whether Bozeat roads are to be sealed. Response – Still awaiting firm programme from the team responsible and will update as soon as I have confirmation. No change.
  7. Light on the yield sign at the corner of Allens Hill and London Rds. not functions first reported on fix my street report No. 3138813. This sign is not indicated under street signs within fix my street and therefore is difficult to report a fault and clear over grown foliage. Can this please be added. Light to be reported via Balfour Beatty Ben Wright to forward details. Response from Highways: Contact Balfour Beatty direct here: Response: Yield sign to be completely replaced.  Trees around Yield Sign to be cleared by Highways before the sign can be replaced.  An order has been placed to remove two meters of hedge at the corner of Allens Hill and London Rds. to facilitate replacement of the yield sign.  Hedge to be removed by the 5th August 22.
  8. Pavement areas along Abby Close and the corner of Queen St. and Easton Lane have been identified for repair. No change.


New items during the reporting month will be highlighted in red on the Highways Tracking Spreadsheet.


Will continue to monitor Street Doctor to ensure works are undertaken as stated and report any changes to time frame for delivery.


Would request that Parish Council members provide me with any concerns they may have that require to be raised on Street Doctor.


The report captures all Street Doctor submissions up to and including the cut off date 10th August 22 that I’m aware of; if I’ve missed any please let me know and I will add to the spreadsheet.
