I am a resident and business owner in Frampton Fen and village welcome gates have been erected in Frampton Fen with a Wyberton name plate and whilst the gates look fantastic it really is causing confusion because if you don’t know the area you obviously think you are in Wyberton. The village boundary between Frampton and Wyberton runs along the A52 so one side is strictly speaking in Wyberton and the other is in Frampton Fen but so very confusing. The obvious thing to do if they can’t be moved to the correct boundary would be to say Wyberton and Frampton. Several residents in Frampton are very annoyed and proud of living in Frampton.
Thanks for letting us know about your issue with an unlit road sign. We will look into this and let you know what we find within the next 14 days. You can find out more about road sign maintenance on our website

Thanks for getting in touch with us. In this case, we’re not responsible for this issue. However, your local parish council is. The village entry gates are not installed as a boundary marker, the purpose is to hopefully slow vehicles down as they enter different locations. The entry gates are installed and maintained by the parish councils at their expense, any permissions granted to add extra signage to the entry gates would be granted by the individual parish councils. Therefore to progress this enquiry we would recommend contacting them directly. Thank you for reporting this matter.
