At the end of last summer the fence in the attached photos fell in to the garage block. Instead of being dismantled and made safe the fence was picked up and pushed on to the public footpath. I would ask you to contact the owners and request they remove the blockage from the footpath. You will see in the photos the fence is blocking the path and is unsafe with upturned nails. The path is heavily used by people taking their children to school and does not have any lighting therefore dangerous in the dark. The fence is located on the footpath running from the end of Maberley Close through to Francis Little Drive.
