Hunt is on for Richmond's worst pothole
Nominations are needed for the worst potholes in the borough.
Richmond Council has put aside £490,000 to repair roads and footpaths residents would like to see improved this year.
The annual community road and pavement fund was launched after a survey showed the condition of roads and footpaths was one of people’s top concerns.
Councillor Chris Harrison, cabinet member for highways and street scene, said: “The annual fund is divided equally between the borough’s 14 villages to target roads and pavements most in need of repairs and enhancement.
“We would like residents to come forward to nominate areas which they feel we ought to be focusing on.”
Last year more than 400 residents nominated areas they thought needed improvement and the council pledged an extra £400,000 to boost the scheme in its first year.
To nominate a road or footpath visit richmond.gov.uk/fund or pick up a form at a library or the civic centre. Deadline for nominations is Friday, March 1.
