  • Originally reported nearly one year ago. Path can no longer be accessed. Original response and follow up unacceptable. Councils responsibility to make the path safe for pedestrians. Especially small children, push cars and wheelchairs - before an accident happens

  • I reported this months ago to be told not your problem and you’d written to owners of property. They have done nothing and it’s getting worse. People with prams can not walk on the pavement nor can people in wheelchairs. Something must be done before an accident happens, particularly as it gets dark earlier and street lights don’t throw off as much light as they used to.

  • This was reported on 3 Sept 2022 and still no resolution. The overgrown vegetation is getting worse and DANGEROUS. Pedestrian's, including children and parents with prams, are forced to walk in the road. Cars park opposite the location allowing no room for pedestrian and passing cars on the road.

  • No change. I walked that way today and was shocked by how big the laurel hedge is now. The pavement has pretty much vanished. How is this allowed to happen.
