Heworth Without’s Liberal Democrat Councillor, Nigel Ayre, has welcomed the announcement that City of York Council plans to resurface part of Stockton Lane next year.

Councillor Ayre said he had called on the Council to look at resurfacing Stockton Lane after a survey of local residents highlighted the road as being one of their top priorities for action.

Councillor Ayre said:

“Improving the condition of roads and footpaths in Heworth Without came out as residents’ top priority for Council spending in the ward, with a large number of residents specifically highlighting Stockton Lane as being in need of attention.”

Following pressure from Councillor Ayre Stockton Lane has now been included on the provisional list of roads to be resurfaced over the next financial year as the Council plans for a £2.4m investment in roads and footpaths across the city.

Councillor Ayre said:

“I am pleased that the Council has responded to the wishes of residents and has included Stockton Lane on the list of provisional list of schemes for next year. “Once the list has been approved work can begin on planning the scheme so it can start in the new financial year.”

The provisional list of also includes essential safety work on part of the A1036 Malton Road in Heworth Without.

Councillor Ayre said he would continue to push for more roads in the ward to be resurfaced over the coming year.

He said:

 “I will be continuing to talk to Council Officers to see where it may be possible to get more local roads included in the resurfacing programme if funding becomes available.”

“I would encourage local residents to flag up any areas that they feel are in need of attention so that they can be considered for any future work.”
