Fire station site development issues

A number of residents have contacted us recently about vibrations, dust and other issues from the work being done on the former fire station site in Framwellgate Moor. the new housing development will be started soon once the demolition and clearance has been completed.

We have been working with Environmental Health and Planning, and some dust reduction machinery was brought in. More recently there have been further complaints about vibrations from the work going on.

I have asked officers try and get the developer to install some vibration measuring devices. (more…)

Holmlands Crescent repairs carried out, more reported

holmlands crescent path repair

Picture of work done.

For some time I have been asking for this path to be fixed. Well perseverance pays off. This and other repairs I reported on Holmlands Crescent have been actioned. many more are still waiting to be done.

I have of course had to report more problems on this and other streets in the last few days including broken paving and kerbs, potholes, trip hazards and requests for resurfacing, including but not exclusive to Hudspeth Crescent, The Avenue, Durham Moor Crescent, Woodbine Road. More will no doubt follow in the coming days.

It’s just a shame the County Council isn’t more proactive. If it spent the money it had more efficiently and listened to Lib Dem councillors, a lot more work would get done, for a much lower price and repeat repairs wouldn’t be necessary. (more…)
