Thank you to the Parish Council for this information:

The Parish Council is aware that the condition of the roads in, and around, the village is of concern to residents. The responsibility for maintaining the roads rests with Derbyshire County Council. DCC operate an on-line form for accessing information and reporting various issues which can be found here.

To report a pothole select

  1. Report or request
  2. Fault on Road
  3. Road condition

then select the picture that matches the pothole and add its location and comments and/or photographs.

The following have already been reported by the Clerk in April with photographic evidence.

  • Near the Cottage and Nether Green
    Deep pothole – Reported on 6 April 2016, I believe this pothole has been reported before but there has been no repair. This pot hole is approximately 9cm deep It is on the main route through. Parwich It is on a narrow lane frequently used by cyclists in groups. If a cyclist were unable to avoid it the risk of serious injury would be very high.

    Current status: Job authorised

  • Near Church View
    Shallow pothole – The surface has broken up around iron works in the road leaving a 6cm exposed sharp metal edge. This is a hazard to cyclists and pedestrians.

    Current status: Enquiry noted

  • B5056 to Ashbourne
    Subsidence – This road has been damaged by heavy lorry traffic in a number of places. This is the main route from several villages and businesses into Ashbourne. There is concern that failure to address the condition of this road will lead to further deterioration resulting in more costly and disruptive repairs being required.

    Current status: Enquiry noted

So as you will realise nothing has happened very quickly. The Parish Council appears to have no more influence than anyone else using the reporting form. However it may be that if more people report the same issues indicating their continued concern then they might be given a greater priority.

Andrew Martin.
Parish Clerk.
