Positive meeting held with both Staffordshire and Derbyshire County Councils to discuss resolution of highways issues for the village

Councillors from Walton on Trent Parish Council attended a meeting in early December with officers from both Staffordshire and Derbyshire County Councils to discuss highways issues affecting Walton on Trent. Representatives from South Derbyshire District Council, Barton under Needwood Parish Council, Drakelow Developments Ltd and Hanson Quarries were also in attendance.

The Parish Council raised a number of issues with the representatives from SCC and DCC regarding maintenance of the Walton bridge and Walton Lane including missing and broken barriers along the road towards the village, the degraded state of the footway and blocked drainage.

The meeting was positive and constructive with a number of actions agreed at the meeting including the need to replace missing barriers along Walton Lane as a urgent matter together with additional remedial actions to repair pot holes in the road and pavement and cut back of vegetation around the bailey bridge. Proposed actions to restrict access of overweight vehicles to Walton Lane beyond the entrance to the Tucklesholme Nature Reserve are also being discussed within SCC.

The Parish Council will receive further feedback from attendees at the meeting on the agreed actions and updates will be provided at Parish Council meetings in the new year.
