Safety on roads around Lichfield were the key talking point when Curborough councillors held their latest street surgery event.
Labour representatives Dave Robertson, Colin Ball and Matthew Field were joined by local activists for the session last weekend.
They travelled to the new Saxon Gate housing development to discuss issues of concern for local residents.
“It was great to hear feedback from the people we spoke to about their local area,” Cllr Robertson said. “However, it was concerning to hear so many concerns around safety on our roads.
“Residents spoke to our team about issues ranging from speed limits to pathways and pedestrian crossings.
“Colin and I will be raising these issues with the county councillor Natasha Pullen and working to find a way for residents to voice their concerns directly with the county council, so that a remedy can be put in place as soon as possible.”
Cllr Ball said the events were proving an effective way to find out about local issues of concern.
“I’m pleased with the way that the monthly advice surgeries and regular street surgeries have gone,” he explained. “They are a wonderful chance to meet and listen to local residents, so that we can try to help them with any issues that they have.”
