Kerbing has been damaged by vehicles parking

Reported in the Pavements category anonymously at 16:36, Wed 20 November 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 5 minutes later

Kogels vans carrying out work at a nearby house after the last few months have been parking partly on the path by the turn circle at the end of Clifton Drive. This has now resulted in the pavement becoming damaged and several of the kerbstones becoming dislodged and lying in the road.

  • This incident relates to damaged kerb stones near the end of Clifton Drive, Abingdon, OX14 1ET. These kerb stones are quite badly damaged - several jutting upwards and posing a risk hazard to vehicles and pedestrians.

    The incident was caused by a large Jewson's delivery vehicle last year. This was a delivery organised by our builder for building work we were carrying out.

    More recently, a relative of one of neighbours parked on the kerb and damaged the underside of her car - causing substantial damage. This resulted in an on-going insurance claim between her car insurers and Jewson's insurers (Saint-Gobain insurers, claim ref.00093968, contact thirdparty@saint-gobain.com).

    I have been in contact with Saint-Gobain, who claim they are not in a position to give me much information due to my indirect involvement in the case, but they indicated that the council is liable to fix the damage and - if appropriate - the council should be in contact with Jewson's/Saint-Gobain to arrange reimbursement.

    Please could you provide an update on your planned actions in fixing this problem.

    Many thanks.

    Dan Graham
