Gravel on the path causing difficulty for rollators and wheelchairs

Reported via desktop in the Pavements category anonymously at 09:40, Thu 22 October 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

Where a driveway exists a couple of local residents have taken it upon themselves to substitute the poor pavement for gravel which is causing difficulties for any villagers with mobility aids. Gravel isn't a good hardstanding alternative to tarmac so a few of the older generations are having to walk down the road dicing with traffic and bin men - not ideal and needs amending if possible please . Please liase if this is OCC duty to repair if not then I will need know who to contact please.
