‘Patchy’ repairs

I AM concerned about what appears to be ‘patchy’ repair work that has been done in the King’s Square/Shambles area.

I realise that repair work does have to take place, but I was also under the impression that this part of York was in a conservation and heritage area.

So I would have thought that when repairs had been made the surface area would be restored to what it was previously.

For some reason, this does not appear to be the case in this area as I saw two largish areas of ‘patchy’ bitumen where there should have been cobbles and stones.

Perhaps this is only a temporary repair and once the work is finished the cobbles and stones will be returned.

This area of the city is probably the most visited in York and one which I feel sure should be treated with the respect, care and attention that it deserves.

I do hope someone can assure me that it is intended to return the cobbles and stone pathways to what they were like previously and not leave them in this patchy and uncharacteristic mess.

Dee Boyle, Howard Link, York.

I can think of several places on the roads and cycleways where I'd welcome some tarmac patches!

Yes it's temporary.
They are waiting till the "Reinvigorate" scheme starts and the whole King's Square area is revamped.....



....y'know, the one where they will be doing a couple of arbitrary adjustments in order to stealthily Accommodate The Chocolate Attraction Tables And Chairs. The tables and chairs that seemingly only the corporate owners of the attraction want and that many many York people opposed.


Why is that the council goes against overwhelming popular opinion again and again?

Cheers, I've read the pieces on your great website and I agree with what you say there on this and also on the "bring Richard home" idiocy.
