  • Resident called to say bottom half of lamppost is there and is the electric part so is rather dangerous.

  • Lampost has been partially removed. Electrical section still remains. This is now a serious danger and it is still being hit by vehicles as it is now below sightline for drivers. Please advise urgently when the remainder of the lampost will be removed.

  • Contractors have been out to the location, and were going to put a new lamppost in. The location id a obstruction for number 10's driveway. The new lamppost didn't get fitted, however the stump of the old lamppost still remains. This is still a danger with electrics. Resident would like a update on what's happening, and also if a lamppost does get renewed, it would need to be relocated so as its not a obstruction

  • Still awaiting removal of lampost stump. Only lower part of lampost remains containing electrics. This is still causing a hazard for vehicles accessing Porthallow Close as it is being hit on a regular basis by drivers turning to exit the Close. The lampost stump requires removal and re-locating to a more suitable part of the road.

  • The lampost stump has now been removed by contractors this morning (25/01/24). Please advise when reinstatement of pavement is scheduled as the site is surrounded by the required barriers and boarding which are currently blocking access to domestic residence driveway in a restricted parking area. Many thanks.
