Immediately outside of our property gates

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 09:40, Mon 4 May 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The area immediately outside of our gates is used as a passing bay by passing traffic including large lorries and heavy farm equipment. We are on a single track lane opposite the Boycott Farm Shop which has large amounts of traffic visiting it. One of the photographs attached shows a lorry leaving the farm shop entrance and they will have to use our area outside our gates to get out of the way of oncoming traffic. The tarmac has been destroyed and is now almost impassable for us to leave our property without damage to our vehicles. I have attached photographs for your kind consideration of the potholes that are mainly causing our problems and one is so deep now that cars that are dropping into it are also likely to be getting damaged. This was an issue I raised a number of years ago so you may have this on record.
