Report by PS Kear.
‘Current problems include the diversion on the Oakham Road near Manton. Work on the bridge is not expected to be completed before 5.7.21. Please consider residents in the local villages, re-directed traffic is still causing them serious problems.
A second traffic issue raised by villages is the use of HGV in villages causing noise and vibration problems. We will enforce weight violations where appropriate. The third area of concern is hare coursing which is not only cruel to the animals but causes considerable damage to fields, hedges and fences where the offenders force their way into fields.
