To ask the Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport to consider whether the Council should grant a request from Mr. and Mrs. Dunkerley to apply to the magistrates’ court for an order stopping up highway rights over part of the highway adjacent to Meadow View, Woodborough on the ground that the highway is unnecessary for public use or any other highway-related reason.
