The entire road surface has failed with massive and deep potholes that are damaging to vehicles

Church Lane is a road that is supposed to be maintained by Bucks County Council. It is not a private road or a right of way as BCC have confirmed to me in the past that Church Lane is on their list of “roads”. The surface of the road has been bad for years but it has got to a point now that it has failed so spectacularly that we, as residents of the road, have had couriers refuse to deliver items to us and people refuse to transport our children down the lane to our house - they have sent small children down the lane on foot, on their own, in the dark. When I returned home from hospital after a recent operation I had to walk down the lane as it was too painful to be transported in a vehicle and nurses that have visited our house since the operation have said ambulances would find it difficult to access our property. Other roads in Bledlow Ridge have recently been resurfaced (Ridgeside), surely it is about time the same happened to Church Lane as it is not right that only people in 4x4 vehicles can access the properties.
