Estate walkabouts to take place in Richmond and Colburn

The Cutpurse in Richmond will be one of the estates visited during the walkabout.

Richmondshire’s programme of estate walkabouts take place this autumn in Richmond and Colburn.

Set by the district council – and working with the Tenants Panel – the walkabouts deal with issues that make a difference on a local level.

Council officers, councillors, and tenants walk the estates to identify and deal with problems in a bid to keep them clean, safe and tidy.

  1. I would love to see paving from the bus stop past the library door on to the con courseand the block of shops. The everybody walks that route and it gets very muddy in wet weather.. There is a path further up which floods at the bottom… So this would improve the area…
