High Street East - Re-surfacing of the Road
This survey is to be completed by the premises owner, if you aren't the owner could you forward this to them as soon as possible.
Rutland County Council have asked Uppingham Town Council to engage local residents and business owners to arrive at the optimum time to re-surface High Street East between the junction with the A6003 and Seaton Road. Some remedial work will also be done to kerb stones at the same time. The work will take approximately 5 shifts (5 days) to complete. Every effort will be made to avoid Friday as Market Day. The dates below are when all or most of the schools are off and the idea behind this is that there is likely to be less traffic in town during these weeks.
At the same time the road is being re-surfaced there is an opportunity to insert a duct which could carry fibre to enable 'fibre to the premise' rather than fibre to the cabinet which currently exists. Council are being asked to consider either fully funding or part funding the provision of the duct - doing so whilst the road is being re-surfaced will cause less disruption.
North Street West
At a similar time Rutland County Council are going to do some much needed work to the stretch of road between the A6003 and the zebra crossing on North Street West. Views are being gathered too from residents about the timing of this work. Ideally it will be done close together.
The information we are collecting as part of these surveys is important to help members of the council make some decisions on behalf of the community they represent. In submitting your comments and names/post codes council will not use these for any other purposes, nor will it sell this information to any third parties. After these matters have been considered in the timescales outlined above, the consultation views will be removed from this page. Copies will be available as council archive - requests for copies can be made to The Town Clerk.
