Temporary bollards now seem to be permanent

Bollards at end of The Maltings (at the junction with Gatehouse Lane) seem to have been removed in favour of those red&white (sand filled) barriers. Thought it was only temporary but these have now been around for a few months. When will we get proper replacements?

Secondly, the bollards (when present) can be unlocked by the emergency services in the event of an incident. However, cars continue to be parked on both sides of this barrier making it impossible for emergency services to enter. Please consider marking this area __ on both sides __ with double yellow lines to prevent this from happening.

Thank you.

  • I received a swift reply (for which I was grateful) although the content of the note was merely to inform me that the situation remained under review. So no action has yet been taken either to restore a permanent set of bollards, or to paint double yellow lines on both sides of them to deter cars from blocking the entrance to the street.

  • Got a swift reply (which was good) but as yet no action. I suspect the local authority has little interest in determining and arranging for a permanent solution.
