Two new street doctor reports raised (Reports: No 120 and 121), both of which have been completed and closed during this period. 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.


  • 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.
