Since being elected in February County Councillor Chris Lofts has been collecting evidence about the disgraceful condition of Marlow Road. Northants County Council are responsible for this road and have let down local residents.
Repairing Potholes is an expensive waste of money
Marlow Road needs complete replacement
NCC claim they were unaware of the problem before 2012
Replacement is now on the forward plan but no date has been set
The more complaints NCC get the better
Chris Lofts will continue to nag NCC about replacing the road but you can help. Report potholes to NCC by phone on 0300 126 1000 or by using the online Street Doctor facility – http://www.northamptonshire.gov.uk/en/councilservices/Transport/roads/streetdoctor ,use the BBM Barcode below, or by contacting Chris Lofts on 354396 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The more complaints the better!
Following a request from a resident in Marlow Road Chris Lofts has arranged for South Northants Council to replace the missing street name signs at the junction with the A5. Visitors to Marlow Road will no longer get lost as they drive into Towcester.
Vernon Road School Crossing Patrol – Lisa Samiotis has continued her campaign to keep this vital child safety service. Chris Lofts has pledged £1000 from his County Council Community Fund and Lisa has helped collected the rest of the cash to employ our Lollipop Lady for another year. We need to keep on campaigning for a permanent solution to funding for the crossing patrol which is safe until 2013 at least.’
