I had previously made a complaint in July 2019, regarding this and then no update when I made contact in august 2019. Then the case close, And no reason given why. I’m now making another complaint as it’s very dangerous, I have kids within the property going in and out of the garden. Running near the front door and that is where the hole is. By my door not near the street. Also it is next to where my bins are kept meaning I have to be carefully not to slip into the hole when taking out the bins. This is a dangerous hazard for me and my family. Please could someone look into this again and contact me to please have it fixed ASAP.
