Immediately outside 1 Old Barn Close, Gawcott, Buckingham at the bottom of the steps leading to the front door

Reported via mobile in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 16:19, Friday 22 January 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

For some years now the path outside our property has been deteriorating to the point where it has now become dangerous. The path has broken up conpletely running along the front of the house, so when anyone descends the steps, they find themselves on uneven and jagged ground. We are both elderley and my partner in particular is unsteady on his feet. Twice recently he has lost his footing when stepping on the path. To rectify the problem, the path ideally needs repointing outside our property, to cover the loose stones and debris that are now showing through. We hope the photos help to show the problem, but they don't really do the damage justice. We hope you can help us.

Thank you

Maureen and Alan Lee
