Cllr. Eddie Johnson gets back to me about the soak-away situation.

We get a response from Cllr. Eddie Johnson. Do we believe?

Dear Mr Hagon,

Thank you for your email dated 22 March 2016, regarding the cycle path in Winstree Road, Stanway.

Our Engineers have assured me that the design of the cycle path scheme does take into account the loss of the grass verges and this has been considered to have a minimal effect as part of the overall scheme. As part of our programme of works, any drainage issues or blockages that have been identified will be remedied by our contractors.

Additionally I can confirm that the funding for this work was secured for the cycle scheme and can only be used in the delivery of this project.

Thank you for contacting us in respect of this matter and I trust the above information clarifies the current position.
