Street Doctor Headline

Two new street doctor reports raised during this period (Report No 122 & 123). 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. Contacted Ian Boyes on this matter who responded as follows: I confirm that I passed the orders for the “dragons teeth” road markings and upgraded yellow backed “School” signs to our Maintenance Team at the end of May.  I’m chasing this up and will get back to you as soon as I hear anything further.


  • On going works yet to be completed
  • 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. No change.

  1. The junction of Harrold Road and Church Lane/Allens Hill 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. No change.
