There is a problem with satellite navigation systems directing heavy vehicles along Burnham Lane and Dam Lane to and from Barton, several of these vehicles have found Dam Lane non-negotiable and had to reverse a considerable distance. This matter has been discussed with North Lincs to find a solution, it has been requested by a resident, that a weight limit be introduced, more discussions will be held with NLC.

The footpaths along Station Road need to be treated for weeds and also residents will be asked to trim their hedges which are encroaching on to the path.
