  • The pavement has begun to break up a lot more. The area affected is now at least six feet long.

  • This has not been repaired, do they have permission to close the pavement? There was no notice of planning posted visibly either, builders vehicles regularly block the entire pavement as well, forcing kids and mums with prams, etc' to cross this fast little road - nothing has been done so far so we residents are feeling a bit upset/suspicious

  • Hi - not sure how the highways department can allow this, the homeowners have smashed up and then blocked off the pavement- this is a public highway - surely people aren't allowed to do this as they please? Does this mean that I can dig up the pavement outside my house to prevent people throwing their litter into my garden? They need to pay for reparations and get it done immediately, can someone please call me to explain the situation? 07870 815557 Tony Ellis Thanks

  • Still no change and it has been nearly FOUR MONTHS NOW. Please have this fixed. It is in no way a priority for the builder.

  • Please re-open this problem. The path STILL hasn’t been fixed. A month ago we were told that “hopefully it will be resolved shortly”. It hasn’t been fixed. It has now been more than FIVE MONTHS. How can this be acceptable. When will it be fixed?

  • The pavement is still destroyed, obviously we can all just smash up the pavement whenever we like with impunity, also my van suffered a smashed windscreen after stones from roadworks were flung up by a vehicle, what do I do about compensation?
