Some potholes in York, reported weeks ago, have still not been filled. This is the time of year when the Council normally catches up on the pothole backlog which can develop during periods of icy weather.
The York Council doesn’t provide “real time” updates on the number of highway defect reports it receives and the progress made in addressing them, but there is a suspicion that some are written off without any action being taken.
Fortunately the LibDems, who lead the new administration at West Offices, promised in their election manifesto “to reconstruct all roads in York”.
Even allowing for hyperbole, that is a very expensive looking promise. Perhaps Council officials had better get on with drawing up a work programme?
Below are the latest planning application received by the York Council for the Westfield ward.

The Council now no longer routinely consults neighbours by letter when an application is received
The flower beds in Corlett Court in Foxwood were refurbished earlier in the year. Unfortunately, during the recent dry spell, one bed was taken taken over by a particularly pernicious form of weed. The weeds had strangled growth of the Lavender plants that had been cultivated.
Thanks to “Good Gym” for removing the weed then replanting the lavender and other low level plants.
18 bags of weeds were removed together with a bag of rubbish.
Great work by “Good Gym” who make a real difference to the appearance of our City
Today we’ve reported a full bin in Oldman Court!
Some access paths across the verge on Bellhouse Way are overgrown with grass. We’ve asked for them to be made safe
Elsewhere we’ve reported more overgrown hedges and flower beds. We understand that the Council’s garden care scheme is running behind schedule. Andrew Waller is addressing the issue
