Motion on disruption caused by Thames Water

A Reading Borough Council (RBC) full council meeting will consider a motion from Norcot councillor Debs Absolom expressing concern about the disruption of roads and pavements by work carried out by Thames Water.

The motion seeks agreement that:

This Council therefore resolves to ask the Director of Environment and Neighbourhood Services to write to Thames Water inviting them to meet with relevant councillors and officers to discuss their programme of planned works and a communication strategy with local residents.

Reading residents around Katesgrove Hill have suffered from such disruption, planned or otherwise, over the past year and would welcome the improved communication requested in councillor Absolom’s motion.

Whitley Pump would like to add to the discussions a question about why it takes so long to fill in the holes after the work has been completed.

Rules for motions are set out in paragraphs 6 and 7 of the standing orders of the RBC constitution.

The council meeting will take place at 6.30pm on Tuesday 17 October at the Civic Offices, Bridge Street, Reading, RG1 2LU and is expected to be webcast.
