Council’s current financial situation.
Accounts Accounts The works commencd, on the 2nd May 2017. It is a major project and will take at least 3weeks and in 5 phases. When we say resurfaced we mean a proper job and not just a patch up costing nearly half a million. Most of the work will happen between 6pm and midnight and will involve alot of disruption but worth it in the end.  The re-surfacing of the A338 through the Collingbournes is now well on the way. The system has been changed and improved in the following ways:   	The old Clarence number has been replaced by 0300 456 0105.This feeds direct into the Customer Care Centre     and avoids problems that used to arise   for mobile phone callers. 	Reports may now be made online to          	It is now possible to track progress in real time on resolving road maintenance issues that have been reported online. 	Issues that can be reported include council signs, car parks, fly-tipping, potholes, playgrounds, street lighting, roads and drains and manholes, traffic lights, dead animals on a public road, trees and many others.   There is now a new procedure for Reporting  Highways Issues.            also an app is available for smart phone and pad users who can download it from the online reporting website. Road Notices and Updates None to report More details. More details. It will apply to trailers over 3 metres long and large vans. Information about how to apply for a permit will follow.

More details. More details. You may have wondered what the rubber hoses were crossing the A338 near Bourne Works before Christmas. They were the technology to monitor the speed of traffic through he village. The results of the metro count in both Ducis and Kingston are now known. This was undertaken to give accurate data of type and average speed through the villages. From the results it appears that speeding is not as bad as we perceive. MetroCount results are now available.
