Outside the driveway to 38 Dukes Wood Avenue, Gerrards Cross SL97JT

Reported via desktop in the Footpath / pavement problem category by Robert Hobson at 09:09, Monday 20 September 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

Pavement repair completely lifted due to tree roots associated with a fir tree close by also in the pavement. Now a significant trip hazard particularly for children and elderly and accident waiting to happen. The concrete plinth is 3 inches above the pavement and it is getting worse daily. Likely that the fir tree will need to be removed and replaced with a smaller tree.
