Grass verge along B485 (Chesham Road) at Hyde End near junction with Hyde Heath Road

Reported in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 14:04, Tue 8 October 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

A manhole cover on the grass verge outside our property was cordoned off with cones and tape about 12 months ago. We don't know which department or utility organised this but we understand it was due to the manhole cover was unsafe as a walker had fallen and trapped their foot in it. The manhole has not been attended to and we request that appropriate people are contacted to have this made safe as soon as possible.
