Residents have reported this problem a number of times and has been an issue for many months. It is unclear if work has been undertaken by utility companies or if it is the Council but the “temporary” placement of cones over what is a hole in the pavement has gone on for far too long. The area has both children and elderly people living nearby and is an accident waiting to happen. Please investigate and resolve as a matter of urgency. Thank you

  • Firstly, please note that I appreciate that we are still in lockdown and that works undertaken are limited however this was reported in December 2019 and yet is still outstanding. Does one of the nearby elderly residents need to fall over on these cones or fir them to be removed by vandals and an accident take place before this matter is dealt with? It would be very much appreciated if you would advise potential timescales when this problem will be dealt with.

    Thank you.

    Although some sort of repair was effected earlier this year, this issue has Still not be completed as you can see from the photo. This area has a high proportion of elderly and disabled people and this is a hazard. Please can you arrange for this repair to be completed as soon as possible and the cones removed. Thank you
