Back to all reports

The pathway between Candlemas Mead and Garvin Avenue is in a terrible state especially near Candlemas Mead. As there is very little lighting potholes are a major trip hazard at night. It is a very popular throughway to the new town and used by the elderly and young children.

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

This pavement and pathway has been in an absolute terrible state for years. I’ve twisted my ankle walking through here at night and my daughter has face planted herself off her scooter this morning. It really is time the council re-tarred the entire area. Please fix this - it is a danger. Many thanks.

  • After one month still not fixed - this area is so bad I can’t believe it hasn’t been attended to!

  • Nothing has been done after 2 months of notifying the council - really sad! I did get an email to say it was added to the council’s list and they would fix the problem. Can’t believe they don’t see this as a top priority - this section of the pathway/pavement is shocking!

    Total let down on the council’s part!

  • Still not fixed after 3 months. Being school holidays you would have thought it was a good time to fix. Children could have had a nice new pathway to get to school instead of dodging potholes.

  • Please can a technician update on the progress of this problem - it's been over 4 months and nothing seems to be done about.

  • Can a technician please update - after 5 months with no resurfacing it seems the cries of this neighbourhood are just ignored. We feel very neglected and let down by the council. Please can we be heard and looked after. Our neighbourhood is deteriorating and we are embarrest by the poor state of our roads, pavements and the unsightly overgrown weeds! We want change!

  • After 6 months this pathway has not been fixed! It was put on your list of schedules half a year ago but for some reason it’s been ignored. Could a technician please update on this.

  • Can an technician please update on this? It was added to your list of ‘TO DO’ but 7 months on nothing has been done. This pavement and alleyway are in serious need of repair.
