Church Street closure continues

Sadly, the works to Church Street are still continuing this morning. The indication I have had from the gang there is that they may well still be working on site tomorrow.

When permission for these works was sought, the council granted road closure rights for the period 5th December to 11th December only. And so the current road closure is without permission. What makes this all the more calling for local businesses is that there were no workers on site for much of the past two days.

I am chasing up to get the works completed as quickly as possible. It is essential that this is before Late Night Shopping tomorrow at the absolute latest. I am also pressing for fines to be levied on the contractors for closing the roads without permission, as this has an effect on local businesses.
