Footpath Closure

Emergency Temporary Closure notices on Public Footpath SR165/SU4 that runs from Seal Road, Sevenoaks, (opposite Seal Hollow Road) to Copse Bank. The closure will commence tomorrow Saturday 4th February and run for up to 21 days. UK Power Networks need to install a new cable along a section of the path to reconnect power to Highlands Park. This will involve trenching then re-laying the tarmac. The work will be completed as soon as possible to minimise inconvenience to walkers.

Trinity School, Knole Academy and Seal Primary School have been advised of the closure as it may affect walk to school routes next week.

Reporting a Highway fault

There are so many blocked drains and other issues that need reporting at the moment.
Below is the link that will take you straight to the KCC highways fault reporting page.
If you log a fault you will be given a fault number so that you can track what is being done about it.
If you opt to report it by putting the location on the map (the easiest way with rural lanes) you will see if someone has reported it before you.
Or telephone the call centre
03000 41 81 81

Power Outages - People who need additional support

UK Power Networks is the company that owns and maintains electricity cables and lines across London, the South East and East of England making sure your lights stay on. They maintain and upgrade power equipment and move and connect new electricity cables.

They understand that some people may need extra support during a power cut. They recommend that people add their details to their Priority Services Register. Although, this doesn’t necessarily mean they can get power back on more quickly, it does mean they can offer additional help and support.

By joining the register, customers will receive:
• A priority phone number that can be called 24 hours a day
• A welcome pack with useful advice about preparing for a power cut
• Regular text message or phone updates during a power cut
• Extra support from the British Red Cross

You can call them free on 0800 31 63 105 or sign up online here: http://www.ukpowernetworks.co.uk/priority
