Please help our road look good again!

Reported in the Footpath / pavement problem category by Natalie Conaghan at 13:01, Thursday 11 October 2018

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

Entire road and pavement needs resurfacing - shocking how the road/pavement has been left to deteriorate (Candlemas Mead - Green Area). A lot of the residents feel like our road is being neglected and we feel let down by the council. Gutters are also terribly overgrown by weeds. We have a huge litter problem too and cars are being parked on the pavement (kids have to scoot into the road to get around), cars parking on the green and damaging the grass (big parking issues). Please help our road look good again!

  • I have been in contact with our Mayor and ward councillor about the serious deterioration of our road and in particular the pavements. Since (after your above inspection) part of the road has been cleaned by a truck (obliterated gutter weeds in the process) it has uncovered how unbelievably bad the road actually is. I feel part of the reason for our serious overgrown weed problem is not because of lack of spraying but because there is no tar left along the gutter and seeds are making contact with soil in these craters. Please see photos of gutters where weeds use to grown before street cleaning truck came around and obliterated them. Please can you review our road again. I will be in contact with someone in TfB. I would really appreciate it if we could arrange a meeting with residents and our councillor. I/we would really like someone of authority to come around in person so we can walk around our road and point out the very many concerns we have with our road and pavement surfacing.
