    A section of northern footway of Crondall Street is entirely blocked by a hoarding associated with construction being carried out by Regan Lofts/Inroka Ltd.

    The documentation displayed on the hoarding does not indicate whether or not a footpath closure has been applied for and granted, but in any case there is no signage alerting the public to a footway closure displayed either on the hoarding or approaches to it. Two licences are displayed on the hoarding, viz

    Hoarding licence HL0001648 Attached conditions: Size of hoarding permitted: 12x2 = 24sqm Pedestrian footpath of 1.2m must be maintained at all times unless footpath closures are in place for whole duration of Licence. Issued: 01/07/22, expires: 09/10/22

    Scaffolding licence HL0001651 Issued: 01/07/22, expires: 09/10/22 Conditions indicate that 1.5m of pedestrian footpath must be maintained at all times.

    Crondall Street remains a through route for motor traffic, and is very busy with vehicles, including the 394 bus.

    The sightlines for pedestrians on the northern footway are currently obscured in both directions by the hoarding. People are having to peer around the hoarding to look out for oncoming traffic in order to cross to the southern footway or walk in the carriageway to avoid this obstruction. This footway should not be closed unless for urgent reasons.

    A less important point, but still worth noting, is that the majority of the width of the unnamed but apparently adopted (judging by presence of double yellow lines) dead-end street between Regan Way and Hoxton Street has been blocked by the hoarding, leaving an inadequate width for pedestrian access.
