Update on experimental road closures
There was a big turnout of residents in Ruffet Road yesterday at the meeting organised by Claire Young to discuss the experimental road closures.
The closures are due to start on Monday, having only been announced last Tuesday. Whether they agreed with the closure or not, people were unhappy about how this has been done. The Conservative Cabinet Member left before the end without saying whether he'd put the proposals on hold but Claire secured a promise from officers of a proper public consultation event.
This morning highways officials have confirmed that following yesterday's meeting there will be a pause to allow further consultation - details will be posted on the consultation web page today.
