Thanks to everyone who has emailed me about this.
The roads that received the largest number of nominations were Haredon close and Sydenham rise and we have therefore nominated these roads for assessment. This doesn’t mean that these roads will automatically get re-surfaced but that council officers will now undertake an assessment of their condition and determine whether they are a priority (based on a set of criteria) - the roads that are assessed as being the highest priority get resurfaced first. I will receive updates from officers and pass them on here.
Most of the other roads we received emails about were either (1) already included in officers’ list (eg Sydenham Park) or (2) not in Forest Hill (if that’s the case, I have or will pass your email on to relevant councillors).
This process is repeated regularly and we can of course make representations to officers outside of it, so we will be able to nominate more roads.
Finally, I am following up with officers about pavements, and whether a similar process exists (as our pavements are in dire need of repair!).
Many thanks again to everyone for engaging.
Cllr Sophie Davis
