Got a problem? we'll fix it!

Despite the best efforts of the various Council departments, sometimes something that doesn't work or is blocked or broken can be easily missed or overlooked.

If you experience such a problem or know of something in our Ward requiring attention, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Here are just a few examples of problems we have been able to fix after your councillors interceded on these matters, we are pleased to report that solutions were quickly found. If you have any such concerns, please let us know how we can help.

Work in Progress
There are many more examples of our work in Peppard Ward

29th April 2012:
We are aware of ongoing works in progress from various utility companies in various parts of the Ward, including Surely Row (pictured above), Kingsway area, Lowfield road Caversham Park Village. These have been reported to the Highways department to chase these companies to complete the repairs and clear up the sites after them.

Dangerous pavement ... Repaired!

Dangerous Pavement
In the height of the summer, which now seems to be in the distant past, Councillor Mark Ralph stood next to this dangerous pavement in Kidmore End Road which was a particular problem our older residents who are less nimble than they used to be.  We are pleased that it has now been fixed.

Burnout kiosk ... removed!

Milestone Way Telephone Kiosk
its a terrible shame that mindless vandals set this telephone kiosk alight. In the absence of a mobile phone or a run-down battery, this kiosk could well have been used in an emergency and may well have saved someone's life. As a result of an area walk-about to enhance the area with local residents, businesses and Police and subsequent contact with British Telecom the kiosk was finally removed after a 90-day public consultation period.

Eyesore ... ... relocated!

Kidmore End Road, Emmer Green.
Following complaints from our local residents regarding an unsightly collection bin, it was promptly relocated to a more appropriate place following negotiations with the  department concerned.

Dangerous wall ... ... removed!

Abandoned vehicle ... ... removed!

Cllr Mark Ralph marks the spot where an abandoned caravan was not only creating an eyesore but was also occupying numerous car spaces in a busy shopping area car park. Following discussions with the local Police team, the abandoned vehicle was removed.

More to follow shortly! ....
