Headlands Road Surface

When I was first elected in May 2011 to be the only Labour Councillor for Wicksteed & St. Micheals the two main issues were potholes & parking problems.

I am pleased to say that potholes are hardly ever raised by residents now, and most of the parking issues have been resolved. The new residents parking schemes which are now enforced by KBC Environmental Wardens are working well, so the idea of NCC taking over will not be good.

There are two areas, however, where parking is still a major problem, with no solution in sight for Pytchley Road & Headlands. Headlands area residents are also extremely disappointed by the recent NCC decision to defer for the second time the urgently-needed resurfacing of Headlands which was first promised in 2012/2013.

The whole of this long road is in an awful state, and drivers are forced to weave in & out of the divets to avoid damage to cars, which causes other dangers, when this road also has two schools along it's route.

I have lived in the borough for almost 40 years, and raised my family here. I was first elected to Kettering Borough Council in 1994, and was deputy leader of the Labour group, and lead spokesperson for housing and the voluntary sector, for many years. Now retired, but for many years I was the CEO for Kettering Centre for the Unemployed running education courses and providing support to those with little or no basic qualifications. I was elected to the new Kettering Town Council for Wicksteed & St Michaels and to Burton Latimer Town Council in May 2021.
