Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 4 minutes later. ref: 1610136.

The top surface of the paths and the roads have all lifted. Its like walking on gravel which is extremely slippy. Most of the children now ride their bikes on the road due to the paths being uneven and there are a number of elderly people that also use the road now with zimmer frames and walkers due to the poor pathways. All of the lose gravel is collecting at junctions and there have been a number of reports from residents about stones flying when cars are driving past. Two of the residents have reported being hit by stones by vehicles over the past month. This issue is for most of the Peak Meadows estate phase 1. Phase 2 has recently been resurfaced which was not needed as the roads and paths are newer. Entrances to driveways where dropped curbs are present also have dips on the paths. The roads for the area are in a complete mess.

  • Can I have this escalated please as the response is unacceptable. The pathway's are a mess, crossings are a mess and the roads are full of lose chippings.
