Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Sunken road , causing cracks to drive ways of No. 7 and No.9 Charles Close HP21 9YF The road along hear has sunk 4+ inches which results in road surface pulling away from the driveways and large cracks have formed across the driveways - these crack are up to 8 feet longs and making it difficult to manoeuvre cars. There is a risk of damage to residents vehicles as the surface sinks and the cracks and bumps get worse. Please inspected asap and keep me updated. Thank you.

  • This relates to the continuation of the report re Charles Close. These are photos from the road between 64 and 69 Patrick Way where my grandson was thrown from his bike when his wheel went down the large cracks that have appeared in the road. It is extremely dangerous and I would like to know when you intend to make these urgent repairs
