Did you walk along the footpath between Watergate Lane and Staplehurst Avenue prior to flood alleviation works in 2013?

During the flood alleviation works in June 2013, access to the footpath between Watergate Lane and Staplehurst Avenue was closed and since then the landowner has kept the footpath gate locked.

If you regularly used this route we need your help so we can provide enough evidence of its use to reopen the route for future use by the community.

Lubbesthorpe Development News

Consultation on Access Bridge over M1

The construction of the access bridge over the M1 between Thorpe Astley and Lubbesthorpe is expected to take around 18 months to complete. A residents consultation in the form of Exhibitions is now likely to take place in September on the construction programme and how any impacts on residents will be minimised. Constuction vehicles are currently on site since the contractor is currently undertaking some soil sampling as part of finalising the construction programme proposals.
