Broken A Board sign propped up on street sign obstructing pavement

This damaged A board has been obstructing the pavement for a number of weeks and needs to be removed. Surely obstructing the pavement particularly adjacent to a zebra crossing is an offence. We would be grateful if the team could take action.

  • Thank you for your response, I do fully understand your position but I would respectfully suggest that it is the County Council’s responsibility to ensure that the pavement is unobstructed and safe for pedestrians. A sign propped up against street furniture which frequently falls down is a trip hazard and obstructing the pavement preventing safe view of the zebra crossing for motorists, safe passage for the elderly, partially sighted and disabled. I have drawn this matter to the attention of Councillors Sames and Waine who had promised to bring it to the attention of the Highways committee. I trust your note to Anica means they take action and remove it,
