New footways investment for Sudbury! Eton, Charterhouse and Rugby to get re-paving works
This week, we’ve written to residents in Eton Avenue, Rugby Avenue and Charterhouse Avenue to confirm they will be included in the newest round of investment in footways by Brent’s Labour Council. This is just the next step in investment for Sudbury and comes after similar footway improvements in Harrowdene Road, District Road, Station Approach and parts of Maybank Avenue. We know other roads and footways still need doing, and will continue to nominate these for future rounds.
During the 2018 Local Elections, we made it a key priority to push for investment in Sudbury’s roads and footways – filling in potholes, dealing with trip hazards on pavements and improving the quality of grass verges. Since then we’ve been hard at work reporting street issues across every area of our ward, and making Sudbury’s case for Council investment.
In previous rounds of Council investment, we’ve been delighted that Sudbury has received its fair share of funding, with footways in Harrowdene, District Road, Station Approach and parts of Maybank Avenue re-laid. We’ve since worked hard for other footways to get re-paving, and in this round Eton Avenue, Charterhouse Avenue and Rugby Avenue were amongst the areas we nominated for improvements.
We are delighted that as part of their 2021 programme of works, Brent Council has now confirmed that these three streets will receive full footway improvements as part of their 2021 Public Realm Improvements budget. These improvements will cover the whole stretch of road and will be done along the same lines as previous rounds of investment in Sudbury.
We have written to residents in these roads confirming this welcome investment. The Council will write to residents with further details on timescales closer to the date. We would like to thank all the residents in these streets who have worked with us to report these issues, stretching over many years.
As welcome as this investment is, we appreciate that other areas in Sudbury still need work. We regularly report these issues in our frequent walkabouts, and we will continue to nominate them for future rounds of investment. If you do have any concerns or issues about your street, please do get in touch with us – the more reports we submit, the more likely it is they’ll be considered for upgrades.
