An MP for Calverton has thrown his weight behind a petition calling for a busy road in the village to be resurfaced.
Sherwood MP Mark Spencer has joined forces with village community activist Jane Walker to campaign to get Nottinghamshire County Council to resurface Park Road East. They have created a petition for local residents to sign and voice their support. The petition has already received considerable support from the village after Jane Walker spent a day campaigning around Park Road East.
Discussing his campaign, Mark said: “Park Road East is one of the busiest through-roads in the village, it’s also a bus route, so the road needs to be fit for purpose. When Jane proposed doing a petition to get the County Council to consider re-surfacing it, I thought it was a great way to show how strong the need for it is in the village.”
Calverton resident Jane Walker said: “As a resident of Park Road East myself, I know too well how bad the road is. I’m really grateful to our MP for his support with this campaign. The more support we get from people in the village, the louder our voice is and the harder we are to ignore! There has been a huge amount of support for this in the village, and everyone I’ve spoken to so far has been eager to sign our petition!”
