Independents look to prioritise road and pavement repairs

Ashtead Independent County Councillor Chris Townsend is looking to identify and prioritise new road and pavement repairs around the village following a change in the way Surrey Highways is allocating it resources.

Under the terms of new Surrey Highways contract Councillors are allocated funds to help them identify and sort out roads and problematic pavements.

“But the funds are limited,” said Councillor Townsend, “and so we need to get the best for what funding we have.”

Councillor Townsend knows of roads and pavements himself that need attention, however he appeals to Ashtead locals to let him know if they have any particular issues so that he can prioritise the funding and work.
