Twenty seven pavements to benefit from half a million pounds of improvements

Twenty seven pavements across the borough will benefit from an additional half a million pounds of improvements, including Waldegrave Road and Claremount Road. 

Earlier this year 1,342 people nominated 498 local pavements for repair as part of the Council’s Community Pavement Repair Fund.

Now in its sixth successive year, the Fund is £500,000 put aside for the community to nominate smaller pavement fixes in their local area. Each village will then receive £35k over the coming year for the repairs. Fixes could include replacing damaged paving slabs, replacing blacktop infills or eliminating standing water. Funding is directed to those eligible pavements that had the strongest level of support through the nomination process.

The funding is in addition to more than £3.7m allocated within the Planned Highway Maintenance Programme, which is the Council’s overall budget for improving pavements and roads each year.

Cllr Peter Buckwell, Cabinet Member Highways and Streetscene for Richmond Council, said:

“The Community Pavement Repair Fund gives residents that all important say in determining spending priorities. We have set £500,000 aside for this programme, separate from the £3.7m the Council has allocated for planned road and pavement repairs in 2017/18.

“Since nominations closed the Council’s Highways officers have worked hard to inspect the most frequently mentioned roads across the borough and produce cost estimates. I’m very pleased that the Council will now be starting work improving the locations that residents have identified in each village.
