Dear Councillor Whittaker,

I will get these problems looked at and temporary repairs undertaken asap. Permanent repair will have to wait until next week as we will not have access to hot lay material until after the 11th Jan due to maintenance at the Tarmac Plant which is our only feasible supplier.

Kind Regards,

Nick Trollope - Contract / Insurance Officer, Technical Services

Potholes - Throop road / Muscliffe lane

Larry / Nick,

Really do appreciate the pressure you are all under with the ever increasing potholes situation in the Borough, which as we know in nationwide.

After having a complaint from my partner [Jackie] that her car hit a pothole in Throop road, and having similar complaints have just returned from investigating before I put forward this E-mail, yes concur that driving from the direction OF HOLDENHURST, Throop road approaching Yeoman's road, a number of individual holes in the carriageway, more so opposite Pig shoot lane, and Pig Shoot cottage a very large pothole, and the carriageway adjacent to the driveway into Blue roofs has completely broken up.

Turning to Muscliffe lane, again the previous repairs in the vicinity of 163 / 183 have again open up to large potholes in the carriageway.

Many thanks,

Councillor Ron Whittaker
