MP has referred my complaint re 26-week period for reinstatement by utility companies to minister
Received a letter from Alok Sharma, MP for Reading West, in reply to the email below. He has referred the problem to eric Pickles, Secretary of State for Communities.
please see the email below to West Berkshire Council’s Head of Highways.
I would be grateful if you could speak to the relevant minister with a view to getting the 26 week period for utilities to permanently re-instate their works reduced. With the number of utility companies, and the amount of excavations they do, the limit means that Theale High Street is always going to look like a patchwork quilt.
