Should slippery tiles be removed from Broad Street?

The tiled sections o Broad Street are notoriously slippery in wet weather

DISTRICT and county councillor Daryl Turner is hoping to see the notoriously slippery tiled sections of pavement in Broad Street, Lyme Regis, removed.

Reporting on social media this week, Councillor Turner said he had been looking into the tiled sections, which become very slippery in wet weather and caused several accidents with pedestrians.

He said that “after going back some time”, he found that Lyme Regis Town Council had voted to keep the tiled sections when Dorset County Council had suggested removing them.

He added: “Dorset County Council has recently looked to see if they have any historical connection, reason or value but cannot find any. I believe these need to be removed and therefore have asked Lyme Regis Town Council to debate the issue and give me a formal resolution to replace them.

“I can then take this back to Dorchester and get it on a works programme.”

Councillor Turner said he had been working with local resident Adrian Robinson on the matter and thanked him for his “constructive thoughts”.
