Nantyfyllon street to be adopted by council
Posted on: Tuesday 28 February 2023
An unadopted street in Nantyfyllon will become maintainable by Bridgend County Borough Council with work soon to start on bringing it up to standard.
Maes-y-dderwen will see the replacement of all kerbs and pavements, with the road also being resurfaced.
The cul-de-sac is one of thousands of streets across England and Wales not adopted and maintainable by highway authorities and, as such, responsibility for its upkeep rested entirely with residents and property owners.
This £20,000 scheme is part of a wider programme with work continuing to review ownership of other unadopted roads in the county borough, and establish the upgrade required to bring them up to an adoptable standard. While there will be some disruption to the residents at Maes-y-dderwen as we work on the improvements, we will make every effort to keep it to a minimum. In bringing the street up to a standard where it can be adopted by the council, it will then benefit from regular future maintenance.Bridgend County Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities Councillor John Spanswick
