Next door to Hop Cottage on the road.

Reported via desktop in the Pothole category anonymously at 09:14, Monday 18 January 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

There are a number of failing bits of road surface by the side of my house - this is creating significant water damage to my property as you can see.

I have provided two photos but your engineer will see that the road next to my house in not in good condition.

  • Sirs

    This problem is now getting worse with the potholes after the bad weather are now deep and bigger than before - cars are now hitting them hard and i worry for your own liability as well as the damage to my house. I can provide further photos if needed.

  • Sirs I find myself writing again - you have not responded to my last update. These holes are now getting dangerous and much bigger than when first reported. When a car hits them they can make my house shake. There continues to be water damage done to my house as you will see from the picture. I have now taken the time to write to the Chief Executive of the Council in a hope this might bring a resolution. I hope you can now provide an update. Thanks Ian Bickers
