Local Roadworks 2018/19/20

3 - 5 February 2020

There will be a closure of the B6451 between Darley and Dacre from 3 - 5 February to allow a new water supply to be installed.  A diversion will be in operation via Dairy Lane / Low Lane. 

January 2020

The Clerk and our NYCC Councillor, Stan Lumley, continue to chase regarding the resurfacing of Main Street, Darley.  There is no confirmed date for this to happen.

5th October 2018

Sorry - we are now told that the resurfacing will not be done during this financial year - but will definitely be on the list for early in the next financial year when the weather is fit (e.g. after May 2019).  the Parish Council has voiced its disappointment that we have had to wait so long.... 

25th September 2018
Sorry - still no news on when the repair work may be carried out. Some other roads have been done in our area, nut not Darley!  Our NYCC Councillor, Stan Lumley, is on the case....

24th August 2018
Unfortunately there has still been no sighting of new surface dressing work in the village. The Clerk is trying to fund out when this might happen.

6th August 2018
We are informed that the contractor will be making good the surface dressing work during the second half of August 2018. 

11th January 2018

The problem with loose chippings on Main St has been reported to NYCC Highways and the contractor responsible for surface dressing in 2017 is now committed to sweeping the road regularly to remove the chippings, and to carry out permanent repairs once the weather allows.
