Potholes will be one of the main issues on the agenda when Burntwood councillors hold their next advice surgery. The Labour councillors for Summerfield ward will hold the surgery at Burntwood Library on Saturday (April 3) from 10am to 11am.

And they are keen to hear from people who are experiencing problems with faulty street lighting and potholes. Cllr Steve Norman explained:
“We would be particularly interested in hearing resident’s concerns about potholes or faulty street lights that they may have reported to the County Council but have still not been attended to.  I have some street lights that are coming up soon to their anniversary of being reported out of work and I shall invite the press along for the celebration. “Other highway matters I’ve reported to the County Council’s Clarence hotline seem to have gone into a large pothole of their own.  The County Council has just been awarded almost £1.8 million by the government to repair the potholes caused by last winter’s weather but I keep coming across residents who say that nothing has been done about the ones they have reported.”
Staffordshire County Council has already announced that the severe weather during the winter will mean many potholes will need to be given temporary repairs until more permanent measures can be put in place.
