A PROBLEM street in Darcy Lever is set to be resurfaced with a 'pot of money' secured by local councillors.

Bentley Street has been put forward by ward councillors Sean Hornby, Rees Gibbon and David Evans as desperately needing improvement.

According to Cllr Gibbon, residents on the street have been struggling to park and emergency vehicles have struggled to get access in recent times.

He added: "The thing with Bentley Street is that it's cobbled. A while ago they put in new pavements with high kerbs and it looked like they were going to resurface the road but they never did.

"Once it's resurfaced, the parking problems should be eased."

Speaking at the Darcy Lever Residents Association meeting at St Stephen and All Martyrs Primary School, Cllr Hornby suggested other streets in the area could follow.

He said: "We're still looking at other streets and we have until the 17th of this month to submit all the roads we want doing. There are quite a few streets in Darcy Lever that we've identified.

"Some will get thrown back, some won't. The executive member will authorise them towards the end of the month and then providing none of them are called in to council in September, the money is there to commence the programme."
