Sherwood Street, Warsop – Installation of zebra crossing
Installation of a zebra crossing will be undertaken in February by Via, the County Council's partner of choice for Highway works, and will consist of installing a zebra crossing outside the Sherwood Junior School. As part of the work, the carriageway will also be resurfaced for approximately 30m either side of the crossing.
The work should last for a duration of approximately nine days, commencing Saturday 12th February 2021, working hours will be 07:30 to 17:00 each day. To ensure we can carry out these works on your road, we would like your assistance by ensuring all parked vehicles are removed from the highway prior to 07:30 daily. Unfortunately, these improvements to your road cannot take place if vehicles remain parked on the road.

Have your say on council services on Citizens' Panel
Mansfield District Council is seeking people who would be willing to share their views to help shape the future of the district.
It has set up a Citizens' Panel whose members will take part in online surveys to give feedback on local services, give views on new proposals and to help identify future needs and priorities.
The panel surveys, which will be carried out up to four times a year, cover topics relating to public services in Mansfield and could include subjects such as:
Waste and Recycling
Members of the panel will be able to use a ‘consultation tracker’ on the council's website to find out more information about the outcomes of the surveys.
Anyone who is over 16 years old and lives in the Mansfield district can take part. All consultation exercises are optional and panel members can opt out at any time.
Cllr Stewart Rickersey, Portfolio Holder for Corporate Services at Mansfield District Council, said: "The Citizens' Panel is an effective way for people to get their views across on a range of topics. Now is the time to get involved and make a difference - whether you are 16 or 100."
To find out more and how to join the Citizens' Panel, call 01623 463438, or fill in the form online via the website link below.
