EAST BERGHOLT PARISH COUNCIL

RED LION CAR PARK

Starting on Monday 14 June and lasting for up to 3 weeks, extensive drainage works will be taking place in the car park. The purpose of the works is to eradicate the flooding problems which have occurred following rainy weather.

THE CAR PARK WILL REMAIN OPEN DURING THE WORKS AS WILL ACCESS TO THE TOILETS AND THE CEMETERY.

The areas in which the contractors are working at any particular time will be cordoned off which will affect the route which needs to be taken for access and egress. This will vary as the works progress and care must be taken at all times during the course of the works to ensure safe passage through the car park.

Suffolk County Council Highways - Reporting Problems

Two Parish Councillors recently visited the local Suffolk County Council Highways Service Delivery Centre. The Highways Officers advised our Councillors that the most effective way of reporting any Highways issues is via the County Council's online reporting tool. Any problem will then be picked up and allocated a reference number. The issue will be looked at by an appropriate member of the Highways Team, prioritised, the area will be inspected if considered necessary, and a solution to any required work will be allocated, if considered appropriate.
