SAVE OUR GATE
Due in part to the the salt which over the years has been thrown down onto Topcliffe Road during winter time, the sandstone pillar that forms part of the entrance to Belgrave Terrace gardens is becoming something of liability ( see supporting photographs ).
If not attended to soon then there is the worry that this stone pillar might fall on a passer by or worse into the path of an oncoming vehicle that uses the Topcliffe Road. Measures need to be put in place with which to avoid the possibility of this happening. The question is - who is responsible for securing this structure ? is it the residents or the council ? is this pillar worth saving ? maybe the pillar needs to be replaced altogether ?
As Belgrave Terrace gardens is described in the Thirsk & Sowerby Conservation Area Planning document as “one of the best examples of Victorian domestic development in the Conservation Area” I woudl like to think that Hambleton District Council are in a position to provide materials, manpower, advice and support in this area. If anyone has an suggestions as to how we address this situation, please get in touch.
