Following the flooding associated with Storm Dennis, the B6399 has been closed to all but essential local access. The Council initially put this in place until 5 pm on Saturday 22 February.
Detailed inspections have taken place since Sunday 16 February to understand the full extent of the damage caused and develop proposals for the necessary repairs. There are seven badly damaged areas to the road.
The initial options in terms of timescale for repairs have been discussed with the Community Council and the decision has been that the road will remain closed next week to accelerate repairs and in order to avoid the community having to contend with temporary closures over a significant period of time.
Updates will continue to be provided once further detail is available. Assessment areas and images can be found in the SBC report below.
