Rutland County Council operates a Highway and Transport Working Group focusing on highway and transport related concerns.
The Working Group, includes representatives from the County Council, Elected Members and partners in the emergency services.
Raising a concern about traffic, road safety or parking
Residents with a highway or transport related concern should contact one of the following stakeholders in the first instance.
- Their Parish or Town Council or Meeting,
- Their County Council Ward Member,
- Member of Parliament,
- The Rutland Access Group.
Stakeholders will then consider the matter and decide whether to raise the issue with the County Council. In such cases, we request that the stakeholder provide supporting evidence (in the form of a minuted resolution) highlighting that the issue is a matter of concern for their community.
If you would like to submit a concern please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information on how to do so.
Note – If you wish to report a maintenance problem, this should be done via FixMyStreet
How are concerns handled?
Concerns received will be dealt with as per the process outlined in the report to Cabinet on 18th September 2018 and considered by the Working Group.
Please note - under normal circumstances feasibility studies (where required) relating to any concerns raised will be started within 9 months of the concern being submitted. However, please note that whilst new concerns can still be raised, due to the current situation regarding COVID 19, timescales will be delayed as it will not be possible to carry out on site assessments during this time as pedestrian, traffic and speed survey data will not be representative of normal conditions.
The Council has several policies which help inform decision making on highway and transport concerns. These policies can be downloaded from the ‘downloads’ section of the Transport Strategy page.
