Havering gets government money to repair pot holes
HAVERING is to receive �323,000 to deal with pot holes in the coming year.
The money follows Chancellor George Osborne’s announcement in last week’s Budget that local authorities would get a share of �200 million to tackle the problem across the country.
The move has been welcomed by Havering Council’s opposition leader, Cllr Clarence Barrett.
The ward member for Cranham said: “This is a welcome boost in tackling a problem which is borough wide. Indeed there are some roads that appear to have more pot holes than tarmac.
“While pot hole repairs present a short term solution what we really need is greater investment on a longer term basis.

“This is a problem not only for Havering but for councils across the country and I hope that future funding arrangements will give us the necessary resources to put our roads and pavements into good order.”
