Footpath resurfacing delayed but gullies being cleaned in Foxwood

The footpath resurfacing works on Bellhouse Way are currently running about one week behind schedule. Affected frontagers have been advised of the new timetable

Good progress was made yesterday by the gulley cleaner operating in the Foxwood area. Good to see the Council getting ready for winter after the recent problems experienced in parts of the City with surface water.

Mixed news in Foxwood as vandals strike

After some delay, the Council have done a good job in clearing the dumping from the Foxwood Park. Accent Housing are going to provide a skip for use by their tenants on a 6 monthly basis . Unfortunately there is still no word on when the Council skip service will recommence

Broken bottle on Foxwood park footpath. Broken glass can be a danger to both children and animals. Please report any problems that you see to the Council ycc@york.gov.uk

We’ve asked for the pedestrian crossing markings on Bellhouse Way to be refreshed

Unfortunately several of the trees recently planted on the Thanet Road sports area field were vandalised over the weekend. The trees were planted following a volunteer led fund raising campaign. We hope that some can be saved. The Police are being advised about the incident.

Vandals attack wall in Foxwood

Disappointing to see that a flower bed wall in Corlett Court has been damaged by vandals. Hopefully the culprits will be identified and forced to pay for repairs! The area will be tidied up prior to permanent repairs being completed before the end of the month. 

Elsewhere the Foxwood Residents Association are meeting tonight. One of the issues to be considered may be the location of additional car parking in the area. Following the completion of the bays in Oldman Court it is hoped to extend the lay-by in Spurr Court. After that it is up to residents to decide where the next bay goes.

Some suggested locations for additional parking bays

That was the week that was in west York in pictures 30th April 2017

An upgraded CCTV camera has been installed near the shops on Chapelfields. We hope that it  -, together with increased high visibility police patrols – will reduce crime levels in the area. We’re also told that – after repairs to the doors – all the garages in The Wandle block have been let.

Still high levels of fly tipping in west York. These are some of the numerous cases that we have reported

Good to see that the parking bay lines have now been repainted. We’ve reported the full – and damaged – litter bin

The growing season is upon us and several hedges are now obstructing footpaths. Particularity disappointing was the failure by the Council to take prompt action to remove the self seeded bushes on Askham Lane which block the view from the bus shelter.

Still a mystery over why the road was closed on Friday. Most of the speed tables in the Windsor Garth area are breaking up.
Shame more information is not posted by the Council on local noticeboards. What’s there is out of date and pretty untidy

New 40 mph speed signs have been erected covering the section of Wetherby Road to the by pass. Residents hope that the buffer will reduce speeds in the built up area. The Vehicle Activated Speed signs on the road are both working. A very quick check revealed that about 10% of motorists still activate the 30 mph limit reminder
