Number 4 bus service diversion route announced

First have announced the diversion route for the number 4 bus from Monday 9th to Sunday 20th September, when St Helens Road will be closed due to work being done by Northern Powergrid.

Heading towards the city centre, the number 4 will miss out Eason View, Thanet Road and St Helens Road. It will instead carry on along Chaloners Road before turning left onto Moor Lane and then left at the Askham Bar roundabout onto Tadcaster Road.

Chaloners Road parking suspension

Parking will be temporarily suspended on Chaloners Road – from Eason View to Moor Lane – to allow for improvement works to be undertaken by the council.

During the parking suspension road markings will be re-painted, pot holes will be repaired, the carriageway will be mechanically swept and road gullies (drains) will be cleaned.

The suspension will be in force from Monday 17th to Wednesday 19th June from 9am to 3pm, though it is hoped that the suspension will not be needed for three days.

Parking boost for Dringfield Close residents

The installation of seven new parking bays for residents on Dringfield Close, off Chaloners Road, has been completed. The bays are constructed from ‘EcoGrid’ with gravel filling and have helped to address a chronic lack of parking provision in this narrow cul de sac.

The scheme was funded by the Dringhouses & Woodthorpe Ward Committee budget and the Housing Environmental Improvement Programme.

Six new council homes planned for Chaloners Road

At a meeting of the council’s Executive on Wednesday 15th November councillors will be asked to approve a proposal that would see six two-bedroom council homes built on Chaloners Road in Dringhouses. The homes would be built on council land currently occupied by garages.

Planning approval for six apartments and two houses was granted for the site on Chaloners Road in August 2014, following earlier Cabinet approval to include the site in the wider new council housing build programme. However, in June 2016, the contractor appointed to deliver the scheme advised that they no longer wished to undertake the development. This was prior to work starting on site and has led to a re-appraisal of the development proposals.

With the building contractor withdrawing from the project, the opportunity arose to look again at local housing priorities and the site suitability for a small development of houses. There is a significant need for two-bed family housing, and the Chaloners Road site lends itself well to this.

Tree felled in Chaloners Road park

A tree has been felled in Chaloners Road park after the trunk split in half, causing branches to block the footpath.

The damaged tree was reported by Cllr Stephen Fenton on Sunday 29 October, and later that day council staff made it safe and cleared the footpath.

On Monday the tree was removed completely.
